- Optimization for better use of power on audio playback.
Potential But Not Yet
This program has really great potential for use in a classroom. I was looking for something where children could create avatars and have them interact and this would be what I was looking for. However, it is not accessible with screen reader software and navigation of the online version seems overwhelming. Also, every time I opened the app it crashed, even after deleting and reinstalling.
In addition, it is not cost effective for teachers. It seems that the real value comes with the higher pay tiers. Well, how can you afford that on a teacher's sallary–especially in preschool–when we have so many other expenses.
Voki has tremendous possibility to transform the classroom but it is far from that day. Keep working on it. I'll keep watching.
I installed this app because I love the computer version, which has only about 10 u need to buy, this one? There are 10 characters you don't need to buy. EVERYTHING COST MONEY!!!!! Seriously I am very disappointed 😡😟👎😬😑😤😫
Couldn't be more disappointed
