1 thing about the app + bring back swipe to turn page function

Hey! I love this app but 1 thing that bores me the most. Why did you change the narrator!? Change it back to the vanilla one before. Also bring back swipe to turn page function because tapping on the arrows seems like a bore to me. I don’t have that type of narrator. Also make The King’s Stilts Read & Learn. Please make that one for December 2020 as a Christmas gift it would make my day.

Please take this all into consideration and make these things and the app for December 2020 as a Christmas gift

Why did you change the narrator!?

My special needs child loves the Dr S treasury & these read & play apps. No joke, I think they get listened to at least 10x a day. If not more. But recently the narrator got switched for the Grinch Read & Play (which is kiddo’s favorite) and it was horrible! The new narrator is not nearly as good as the old one & there was no reason to change this. Please please change the narrator to the old one!!!!

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your feedback. Unfortunately, we do have to change our apps from time to time, due to licensing issues, customer feedback and other reasons. We're very sorry the change in narrator negatively affected your child's experience. We would like to support you in any way we can. Please contact and let us know how we can make this up to you.
