Constant background music This is almost a really great app with interactive stories. Unfortunately there is annoying background music behind all the talking. I think this is bad for my daughter's attention, and for myself I will not tolerate it in the same room as me. I am deleting the app.
Fed up of restarting due to freezing! Picture disappearing and installing getting stuck. When it works its brilliant but more than not it doesn't! All cbeebies Alps are just as bad please sort BBC!
Great for little ones. The stories are read to kids so you can have some free time. They learn how to tap and swipe the screen. The quiz at the end check it'd they paid attention and encourage to discuss the story with you. And you can be sure that all the stuff is absolutely safe for kids. Great alternative to printed books.
Is a pity. The app doesn't work properly on my phone. It doesn't know if it wants to be in portrait or landscape mode. If you switch between one or the other, some of the screen is missing On the first story nothing seems to work. Either orientation. Such a pity cause it makes it unplayable. Lovely graphics though.
The app could be great with a few small improvements. 1. First the app really needs a mute button for the constant background music. 2. An option to control the speed of narration under 'Read to me' would be great. Atm the speed of reading is too fast for my daughter to follow the highlight spelling of the story text. 3. And finally, the icing on the cake would be if under 'read by myself' mode there was the ability to narrate aloud the correct pronunciation any word the user clicks on to assist the child with reading tricky/complex words.
This app is so bugged its unbelievable constantly lags, also trying to get out of a book and switching to another one just takes you back to the same story you currently use. This app really does need revising, have had the same problems on both iOS and Google devices.
