Good app but needs improvement to avoid ADD

The app is great and interactive. However, the information on the screen is sensory overload for kids. It will be good to drop new letters and shape in sequential manner and automatically clear the screen if it becomes full. This could also be a mode for smaller kids.

Mostly good

My 2yo loves this app but very quickly we had some problems with the function buttons. Music playing, launchpad opening. These should be locked too! Luckily my 2 yo will tell me every single time one of those things happens because she knows it's not how it should be. I give this app a 4 star because it is good. Great customization (no sounds if I get sick of listening to it) or any other number of things. There are two things that I can see that can make it a 5 star: lock the function buttons and give a choice for the click and drag function to be random (you have a random choice for just about everything else, why not this one?). I'll definitely update my rating if I see an update that will lock the function keys.

Great little app!

My son turns 2 in a couple days and loves it! If you have a young kid or maybe an order special-needs kid, you should definitely get it.
