Fun but limited Great concept! Fun for all ages. To earn coins, which are used to buy hints, you can choose watch ads. I like this idea because it gives me the option instead of forcing me to watch, but the videos buffer forever or not at all. I also wish I could drag letters into placeholders instead of having to begin at the start of the word.
Too easy, too hard This is a fun and informative game. But the easy pictures are way too easy, and the hard pictures are too hard. I got stuck on two and used up all my coins getting letter hints... I never would have guessed them! Now I'm stuck again and I have no coins... I'm not going to buy them or watch a ton of commercials to earn them, so I can't move forward. So it was fun, but now I'll stick to the instagram version.
unnecessary GPS usage Drains battery I hate when apps do this... There is no reason the app need GPS location results, except maybe to serve up relevant ads based on location. Still, that can be done with coarse (cell tower) location. No need to run my GPS and drain my battery.
Great potential I think this would be a great game with less push for IAP. The pictures are zoomed in too far for most people to recognize. I love the facts after each level. I feel this app was purposely designed to be too difficult to complete without purchasing additional coins. Permanently zoom out the pictures to the zoom out bonus size and you would have a five star app.
I like the challenge of the game but some of the pictures are impossible because the zoom is too close. Also, if I am to get 10 coins by watching a video, then give me 10. Just watched 6 or 7 and only got 2 or 3 for each. Some only give 1. And you are limited to how many ads you are allowed to watch in a given time for those 'coins'.
Points too frustrating The puzzles are intriguing. Earning points is rigged. If the answer isn't obvious, it takes forever to get enough points to get a clue! Watching an advertisement is supposed to be 10 points but often they give you only 3. This site should be fun, not FRUSTRATING. I expect PBS to play fair, not lie.
