Ratings and Reviews
Best educational app!!!
The best thing about the app is that it has math and science.
The Horizon spacecraft made it to Pluto and sent back stunning photos. Please update the app to reflect this new information about Pluto. It is still saying that the spacecraft will reach Pluto in Summer 2015.
My 3 and a half year old has really been enjoying the Grandma and Grandpa games and I was excited to see this new one pop up! I bought it immediately and it's all he's been playing the last week. I love the informative sequences about each planet, and the math problems. He's really digging it! I love that there are bits he doesn't quite "get" at first but he enjoys anyway...and then enjoys on a whole new level as he learns!
