I Love it, think this app is amazing and the Passports and licenses for getting back to nature are awesome can't wait for more from you guys 💯
I can’t access my app info at all
This app started of amazing. I was loving marking all my babies outdoor activities, photos and experiences. Everything was going fine and then out of the blue after 6 months all my information was gone. The app was still, there my email is still registered but I cannot access any of my information. It’s lost. Recently after a year I tried to see if it would work again as I have a new baby but despite my email being registered I cannot access my old profile and baby pictures. Who knows what’s happened to my private information. This app should be taken down until there is sufficient help system in place to deal with these issues.
Only useful for parents with a baby/infant
After being a big fan of the Nature Play Qld program, I really wanted this new app to continue the fun my two boys and I have had with the online avatar and the Nature Passport. But the way this app is designed it seems only to be useful if you have a baby/infant starting out on their Nature Play journey. My boys are ages 5 and 3 and well past most of the 99 activities that you can "tick off" as many times as your child experiences them (i.e. Watching birds fly across the sky, dangling toes in water, etc). I am struggling to find any relevance this app has for us at the moment, so I'm hoping the developers update it soon with more content suitable for toddlers and older kids.
