So Cute!

So cute and interactive. My son loves that his best friend talks to him on the phone :)

Developer Response ,


Apple just recently gave publishers the ability to respond to users so we wanted to take this opportunity thank you for the kind review. When our efforts pay off in the form of happy parents and children, it completely brightens the day/week of the small dedicated apps team.

Thank you again!

Stick to what’s free, the pay calls are not the same

Got this for my son which he absolutely loves... decided after a few weeks of the same “FaceTime” calls that I would upgrade so he can have a lot more of these calls with Elmo. Well, $9.99 later 85% of the new calls are just voice based, no video like they get you with. Pretty disappointed that he only wants to see Elmo and it takes 22 calls to get to one now.

Incorrect pricing

I downloaded this app for my daughter to help motivate her in different areas and it worked really well with that.
What I really did not anticipate or appreciate was when I bought the ‘All Calls’ pack (listed for $6.99) it turned out to be incorrectly priced and I ended up being charged $11.29 after taxes.
As a business practice this is misleading and very frustrating.
Please make sure your price is listed correctly. I would not have purchased the call pack if I had have known how expensive it would be.
