Caribu started off as an answer to grandparent connection in a pandemic, and I recommended it a lot. However, recently, it drops calls multiple times in a single 30-minute window -- we're talking every 5 min or so it drops the call, until we give up and switch to zoom. I think it's become too popular and isn't able to keep up with the bandwidth as it has grown and become more publicized. It needs to be acquired by a big SW company that can fix quality issues stat!!!

I was so excited when I heard about this app. I haven't seen my grands in a year due to COVID so I thought this would be a great way to connect with my 3 year old grandson. We did the trial version and it worked great so I purchased a year. We use it once a week for Nana time but it's got major issues. We have to call back multiple times during the hour due to freezing or the content not loading. He loves to color but it's takes multiple tries to get the colors working. Many times he says he can't hear me so I have to call back. The idea of this app is amazing - the use of it is very frustrating. I see where you say you've upgraded it recently but it hasn't improved these issues.

This app is unfortunately riddled with glitches. My spouse and I attempt to use it to read to our children while one of us is away, but it so rarely works. Usually we end up with a disappointed and crying child and frustration at an app that crashes, or won't let you answer the call, or doesn't ring at the other end. Attempted on android, iOS, and a mix, same results. It's good if it ever works, that's just so rare. We've contacted support, they can sometimes help, others not.
