First of all, I must give my gratitude to the Developers of this app. My child loves it and is learning lots from it. And the Super Simple Songs integrated with the games are really great. But the app tends to have some seriously glitchy behaviours. It often shuts off in mid-game and takes the user to the phone home screen. It freezes at that point for some time with a black screen and when trying to getting back into it, it resets the game so my child loses where the game left off. It's a real test of patience at that age. I have had to restart my phone in order to get it to work again sometimes. On another note, certain things that are required to be either clicked or dragged are placed way to close to the top of the screen, which oftentimes causes my child to activate the slide-in menu from the phone during some games. Also a minor thing, when there's a song involved, there are moments where the song is paused in order to begin an interactive game. But the songs are often paused on odd times. It's really not so crucial but it triggers my OCD to some degree. I would suggest to try to tackle that with a little more finesse :) I realize it's in beta but I hope they pay attention to these things when the time comes to launch the real thing. Other than the things I mentioned, we really love this app!

My kids (ages 3 and 5) thoroughly enjoy this app. The activities are varied enough to keep them interested but repetitive enough to give them a sense of mastery and success. My 5-year-old can navigate his way through the app without our intervention because of the intuitive interface and helpful audible** prompts. (**Unfortunately, because my kids still can't read, we can't use this app in situations where the device has to remain very quiet/muted... too often, the non-text-based visual cues/instructions don't sufficiently explain the task at hand.) It's a valuable resource for our family. Thanks Khan Academy!!

Love this app!! I've spent so much time downloading, trying out, and deleting apps while searching for something appropriate for my toddler to use. I'm impressed and love that it's geared towards learning, as opposed to just mindless play. It has so many different important, and in my opinion, usually untouched (by other apps,) subjects and lessons. It seems that most apps for kids 5 and under only include shapes, colors, or letters and numbers, which is nice, but my child has those mastered already, so I was thrilled to see the range of learning topics covered. Between the content, the lack of ads, easy navigation, I'd say Great job! Keep it up! I'll definitely be recommending this app!
