Thank you!

Hey guys, whatever you do, don’t forget to download this app! This has the Parent’s Choice Gold Award! And the money? It’s pretty cheap. Just one small problem: codeSpark Academy developers, today’s the day that Fooloween/Booville starts. But there’s no updates about it. If there will be a update later, can you deliver it quicker?

Thank you,
Lucas Herozap, Rocky Bananapenny, and Naomi Ghostglitch

Beware the billing!!

Good app, but be SUPER careful that you uncheck the box which automatically renews a yearly subscription. With no warning, another yearly subscription was deducted from my credit card. And for days I have been trying to access the ‘My Account’ section of the app to stop further payments, but it won’t work. It just would have been courteous to be given a choice prior to the next subscription. Busy working parents can’t remember random things that happened 12 months ago!! Costly mistake.
