Ratings and Reviews
PROBLEM SOLVED-SCROLL BELOW FOR FIX. Sound is enabled but no sound. Lots of cool content but hardly child-interesting without sound. Have many other Sesame Street apps and sound works fine. This one a dud. An expensive one. PERFECT RESPONSE FROM DEVELOPER: Most Sesame Street Apps have mute override but not this one. Ipad2 users-like me-often inadvertently turn on mute that isn't noticeable because videos still have audio. So swipe up control panel, turn off mute, voila, back in business. With sound this is a great app.
Developer Response ,
We are very glad the issue was resolved and you can now enjoy the richness of Elmo's Animals. And moreover, thank you for passing along the information to other users and changing the rating! Cheers!
Hello, We are sorry you are experiencing audio issues with the app. In many of our Sesame Street apps we have implemented a mute override so that even if the device is muted the app audio will still be audible, unfortunately this feature was not added to Elmo's Animals. We have found that users on iPad Air 2 which has no physical mute button have frequently turned the mute button in the control center ON without realizing. It's often difficult to detect since it does not affect playback of audio in video and there is no indication the device is on mute when increasing or decreasing the volume. If you are using an iPad Air 2, please open the control center by swiping up from the bottom of the screen and confirming the mute button has not been activated. If your device is not on mute, would you kindly tell us what model of iPad you are using and the iOS version it is running? We have been unable to diagnose the audio problem reported and any details or help you can provide would be much appreciated.
You can seek a refund from the App Store. Although we are the publisher for Elmo's Animals, Apple is the merchant and handles all payments, billing and refunds: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204084
If you are unable to secure a refund with the App Store support, please let us know and we will provide further assistance.

Fun for our animal-lover
A rainy weekend meant our babysitting was done indoors Sunday. This entertained our 4.5-year-old neice for longer than expected. She spent a lot of time in the coloring screens. Nice to have option for free-draw and she started making up animals after awhile and got a kick out of us starting her off with a weird shape or scribble. She's into dogs right now and really got into the animal photos and sounds on a lot of the pages. Lots to do.
Sound won't work. Tried to reinstall the app and restart the app but nothing. Needs to be fixed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
