No longer working It was a fantastic app. I could set the timer for 30 minutes, do a few chores and leave my pre-schooler with my phone with the comfort that he wouldn't be able to get out of the app all while learning some cool things or watching some videos without concerns. Giving him my phone twice a week meant a bit of game time for him and some time to do chores uninterrupted for me. Nothing is working. There are no videos, no games, nothing. They keep 'loading' with no response. Such a shame
Doesn't work My son used to play on this all the time when it was the older version, was excited when he say the new version as it looks colourful now it just says loading all the time! What's the point in having an app if your not going to fix the problems with it? Downloaded a different app for him now. This one is absolutely rubbish!
Well, I would have given this app a much higher rating as my daughter really liked it. HOWEVER once in "kid mode" my phone was hijacked! There was no turning it off, getting to any other screen. Had to boot from safe mode to delete
This infernal application came pre-loaded on my phone and just like nearly every other pre-loaded bloatware application that manufacturers and carriers love to load phones up with, it sucks. This application likes to turn itself on from time to time at seemingly completely random intervals. Once it's on, it sucks down battery like you wouldn't believe. To reiterate, the application itself is dogshit. The people responsible for creating it are dogshit. And the people responsible for successfully negotiating to have it pre-loaded on my HTC phone on the Sprint network are dogshit. To sum it all up, DOGSHIT.
No option to lock out home key When you have an toddler, they hit everywhere on the screen and constantly hit the home key and back out of the app in use. Kid mode needs to be customizable to lock/designate buttons on device since this is a launcher ui. This is possible and don't understand went these options are not available.
Obligated? Why does a phone, which shouldn't be in the hands of a minor, be obligated to keep and update itself? I understand if it's a tablet but a phone? You want kids to learn get a nabi, leapfrog, books, but a phone turned this modern generation in online social idiots more than online intellectuals seeking to enhance their knowledge. Sad.
