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!

The graphics and voices are great and most of the games are as well. It's wonderful this app is free. But the main flaw is that there isn't a way for parents to customize it so that the child doesn't just skip to the easy bits and the videos with little or no educational value. Khan, please enable a 'locked' feature so the kids can't just back up to the home screen and access the full library or navigate backwards to the not-challenging content.

As much as I love Khan Academy and the lessons in the app, we're not really loving the app itself. I think it would improve the app a lot if there were more options to turn certain sounds off. The sound effects and voices are little repetitive and annoying. Also, every lesson in each section has the same intro and there isn't a way to skip it (that we've found). I think this app is great for younger kids, but I think it could use some improvements for kids older than five.
