  • No support when needed

    This is an incredible app. But. When you’ve paid sixty bucks for something, I at least want it to work when needed. Maybe it’s just down for today, but when we try to do the Reading Pathway, it just keeps saying something went wrong. Tried on other devices. Tried deleting and reinstalling. I would at least appreciate being able to ask the company WHAT is going on and how can we troubleshoot. Instead, there’s absolutely no support. And if there is, it certainly isn’t on display for me to easily find. Been a great app. Kids learn from it but I guess leaving this review is the only way I can communicate with the company.
  • How do you cancel???

    The app itself is ok. The problem is trying to cancel when you no longer need the app. I have emailed several times to cancel our subscription with no luck. Aggravating that the $7.95 keeps withdrawing monthly.
  • Nothing "free" at all

    If it's not a free app, don't list it as free. It's misleading and a waste of my time. Consider a "lite" version, but it should NOT say "free".
  • Terrible App, worse customer service

    This app doesn’t work. It continuously makes us log in and then says it can’t find my information. My kids haven’t been able to use this app since I purchased it. I’ve reached out to the company a dozen times and they just don’t respond. WASTE OF MONEY, do not recommend.
  • They make cancelling impossible

    Can someone help me cancel my subscription, it shouldn’t be this difficult and it kind of seems purposeful to trap people into it. Rather it works or not if I don’t want to pay for it anymore I shouldn’t have to just through a bunch of hoops to cancel it.
  • Too many videos

    I like the reading and math portion but there are too many videos in the music and book sections that distract child from focusing on the learning portion. If there was an option to limit the content I would give it five stars. As it is, I’m inclined to cancel the trial and delete app.
  • No diversity

    By ladywood
    There is a complete lack of diversity. There’s plenty of “majority” representation, but very little for any marginalized groups. There are significantly more talking animals than people of color and the general “holiday” section is almost completely US based or Christian holidays. Only 2 holiday videos show any diversity, for hanukkah, but it’s clear watching them that they were written by a person who has never celebrated the holiday themselves. I emailed the customer service team and was told they’re “still working” on their commitment to diversity. Still working?? This app was released in 2013, if they haven’t figured out by now how to honor that “commitment” they aren’t even trying. I also asked if there was a way to opt out of the religious content, since it’s only focused on one religion, and was told no. We cancelled because I don’t give money to companies who only pretend to care about diversity and inclusion.
  • Good app but terrible trial period

    Applied for a 3 months trial and got confirmation but cannot use since the 4th day, just keep asking me to purchase it.
  • Slow and repetitive

    It’s extremely slow moving and repetitive. My son gets bored as it never seems to progress. I’m guessing all the levels in each subject need to be completed before anything can move on? He’s far too advanced for any of the extremely basic math or shapes but it won’t give us new lessons. Reading is at his level but spends far too long on the same topic/lesson to the point of frustration out of boredom. Can there not be different levels per topic? Or an option for a parent to speed ahead in certain areas?
  • Hard to navigate, no skipping ahead

    By Cryskayharps
    We didn’t like this. We’d get to one spot and the microphone setting didn’t work and it never let us skip forward. Very complicated to navigate for me, can’t imagine what it’s like for my daughter. If it wasn’t for getting stuck on that one part I think it would’ve been fine. But so far I’m still on the hunt for a decent reading program!!
