Stopped working

I bought this app about 3 years ago for my eldest and he loved it. My youngest just started the tricky words and I wanted to play the songs for him but app is not working, there isn’t an update.

Does not work

I am very disappointed to pay for an app to find that it doesn’t work. I am unable to contact the developers to notify them of the issue, hopefully they will see this review and issue a fix.

Videos do not play, black screen of player loads and app locks up.

You then have to force close the app to close.
