Doesn’t work properly.

Won’t record and play back in certain sections so you can’t progress.

Great app, just a few bugs

My 4 year old son has been using this app for 4 months now and loves it, it really has helped to bring his reading on, even his teachers have noticed the improvements.
It would have been 5 stats other than a few bugs that I was hoping would have been sorted by now. In Super-Segmenting you arrange letters correctly and press the cat and occasionally it won't accept it so you have to remove all the letters place then back where they were, press the cat again and it then accepts it. This can be really bad as it can make the child think they have spelt the word incorrectly when it's actually fine.
