    Data mining for profit while charging this price is aweful. Shame on these folks.
  • “Free”?

    Not free. I downloaded it expecting to at least have some kind of game for my kids to play, but you need to sign up for a trial to even play it, so why is it advertised as being free? I’m used to downloading “free” games that only let you play to a certain point until you have to pay to upgrade or get farther, but this basically feels like a trap to me. “Give us your payment info so you can have a free trial, which you’ll forget about, and we’ll bill you when it is up because you forgot to cancel.” Such a bummer.

    I think the idea behind this app is great but it’s content is extremely limited, I didn’t find much difference between my 9 yr olds profile and my 4 yr olds. I thought it also said you could have up to 6 kids (profiles) but I was only able to make 3 which doesn’t work for me since I have 6 kids. My autistic son did enjoy this app but it just doesn’t have enough diversity on it for me to pay $8/month, it was very one note. I would just say do the free trial and see if it is right for you but I didn’t feel it was worth it. I gave it 3 stars because my child did enjoy it and it was easy to cancel my subscription through the App Store and I wasn’t charged, it just wasn’t as good as the advertisement I felt.
  • My three year old doesn’t care for it

    So I tried to cancel my subscription two days after getting it my child had absolutely no interest in any of the games or activities on this app. I thought that my subscription has been canceled (through iTunes settings) deleted the app from my phone then went to look this morning to see that I’ve been charged. Not cool. So I went through again and deleted my subscription. I don’t know why it didn’t stop when I canceled it the first time. Very frustrating as money is tight. I wouldn’t mind paying eight bucks if it was something that my kid enjoyed, but this was just a waste.
  • So far so good

    So, like others, I love the app. The videos are amazing and ideal for younger learners. I have only just started trying it. I do have a more advanced learner though, and wanted to know if the games got progressively more challenging? For example, spending a lot of time on phonics and sight words for a fairly fluent reader, while isn’t bad, isn’t maybe the best use of her screen time. She still loves playing and I know there is still value there for her, but I’m just curious if the app will eventually recognize her level and adjust the activities?
  • Nice but trouble logging in

    My son really likes the features on this app! Really neat way to learn new things. When I go to log in on a separate device though, it says my password is incorrect. I requested a password reset but never got an email.
  • Initial frustrations with signing up but helpful customer service

    Initially had difficulty with signing up and felt like a limited customer service response, however when I requested help again swift and helpful outcome. I love the site and was disappointed that I might not be able to use it, also can sign both my kids up whereas other learning sites usually require separate subscriptions so it’s excellent value. My kids love it, this is the only app I’ll let them use as I feel it complements all of our other non screen activities extremely well

    Firstly, my kids love the app and learn a lot each time they “play” with it. Also had a case of user error (my mistake) and they helped me get the app working on my phone within 24 hours! I appreciate a company that helps their customers quickly.
