Great game, great company

This is such a fun game, and my son giggles with the bug while tickling him. I was having trouble purchasing the full version of the game on my IPad 2, and I reached out to gigglebug on Facebook for some help. Got a very quick, kind, and professional reply. Happy that I found this game and that the people working behind it are great also!

Laugh and Laugh again!

Laugh or giggle you ask? Me and my kiddo sitting around decided to get this and while eating during dinner I almost had milk and mashed potatoes coming out of my nose! Does exactly what it's intended to do make you laugh make you smile. Best app ever because if you can't laugh with the one you love what's the point?

No sound

I paid for this app but found out that it does not have any sound. Volume control turned as high as can be but still no sound, no giggle, not a beep.
Works now, funny giggles
