Ratings and Reviews
Videos no longer work
App was working perfectly and was great for my special needs children that need assistance with learning how to independently care for their own bodies. For some reason, the videos are no longer playing and I hope an update comes soon to fix this issue.
Great concept but videos don’t load and pictures are out of order
Love love love the concept of this app but I have not been able to get a single video to load. I also noticed that some of the pictures are out of order and when having to find the missing picture it counts the wrong answer as correct and the right answer as wrong. I would love to use this in my classroom if the bugs are fixed.
The app have I have been looking for. Perfect for my adult clients learning to care for their bodies independently. They can follow along with the pictures or listen to the video.
