Recent updates are GREAT!

I have used this app for a couple of years with as young as 3 yrs old but mostly with 1st and 2nd graders. This is an intuitive app for kids to express themselves. The developers listened to many suggestions I made from experiences using this app with kids. With this update, they incorporated almost all of my suggestions. This is just a straight forward easy to use app. It is worth the $$. The kids LOVE using it.

Good but could be great

This app is great for my class of Kinders to use. Fairly straightforward, fun options, and the kids love it. I don’t like setting it up however, as I have not found a way to sync the author accounts across all devices. I have to enter all my students manually on all of our iPads. I’d love for there to be a way to export my class list accounts via airdrop, Bluetooth, or something so I don’t have to enter the names on each device. I’d also love for there to be a picture password option for each account so students can’t accidentally edit others books. Thanks!

Developer Response ,

That's great feedback! It could definitely be painful to manually add each student. We used to have a feature that did the syncing that would help with this, but very few people used it so we decided to drop it. However, if it's just a class list, maybe we can make that work!
