Recent update

This is a wonderful educational app. The only issue is that prior to the update this app had a read along for beginning readers. I just want to bring this to the attention of the developers/ creators, so that they may put it back.

No sound for videos

I payed for this app but all the videos have no sound. What’s the point?

I like the app. It’s fun.

I like the app. It’s fun. You can learn from it. You see real photos of the chrysalis, caterpillar butterfly and the egg. One that caught my mind was the very colourful and detailed picture of a butterfly. It does help you learn. It’s very educational. There is a game and a pop quiz to see how much you know about the different stages of the butterfly. I would recommend this app because if you haven’t seen a real chrysalis you can see a real photo of one. Overall, this is a very good app.
