Fun but Can be frustrating to navigate
My 3 year old really likes this but I have several problems with it: once you set the first characters it can be hard to get back and edit them. I had to play around a lot to figure it out. The right screen doesn't always pop up right Way. I Wish there was a way to erase the choices and start fresh. Also, there is no way to go backwards in the book so if you stop and reopen it in the middle, you can't just start over from there. Finally, the adult character only has hair, and skin and hair color choices. No clothes choices and the assigned clothes are not fun, just old pants and a sweater and shirt. No style at all! I would still get it again. Up wish these glitches could be fixed.
Good could be awesome
The app closes every single time you open your photos , it's sorta the point, to include pictures, voices and your name so your child can relate to it.
Disappointed And frustrated
Used to love now can’t hear anything
Once I edited the pics we had two years ago it stopped working sound wise
Developer Response ,
