Great Educational Application, Bad Bug

Ever since upgrading to a new iPhone without a home button, there’s no easy way to exit the app. In fact, it will trap you in unless you restart your phone. The only reason I chose to write this review was it was a reason to leave the screen without having the hassle of restarting my phone 🤣 once they catch up with technology again, it will get 5 stars.

Great books for my Grandkids!

I’m a grandpa and a speech pathologist. My grandchildren 4 and 3 years of age love these stories. I do too!

Just Grandma and Me - ALMOST

In the 90's I was an Apple Education Specialist and I took my Mac LC in a case to schools to Demo at Parent Teacher nights and guest reader assemblies the Mercer Mayer's "Just Grandma and Me" by Living Books and it was always the show Fav. When the Grandkids arrived I scoured computer shows and the Net to provide all the Grandkids the same experience on their computers. When I saw this was available for my iPad I was ecstatic and tapped my iTunes account to get a copy. Boy was I disappointed, the pages were there and the same voice was there but the interactivity and animations were GONE. Those features are what kept the children coming back over and over to read and interact with the book. My children even used the multi-language feature of the Living Books series to aid in their learning of Spanish. As others have commented, if the developer can't do it right or better let someone else have the license to replicate the look and feel of the Living Books series. It's not as if the iDevices aren't up to the task the Mac LC was a 16mhz 2MB computer with CD150 CD-Rom drive even a 16GB original iPad should be up to that task. Anxiously awaiting an update so I can use my iPad as Grandpa becomes a guest reader for the Grandkids in school.
