Ratings and Reviews
Works well except…
The app works very well, is clear and easy to read, and has a nice feature of highlighting the “Hamans”. However, I wish there was a way to make the sound effects minimize or go away, and to hide the offer to buy more sounds. I don’t want to play them and not only have I accidentally hit them many times while scrolling, but it takes up space at the bottom of the screen that I would prefer to have as more text. Other than that though, it’s a great Megillah app and is much more comfortable to read than most of the other ones in the store.
Great app, easy to follow along. Love that it highlights the “haman”s which was fun for my kids to follow. Love the built in noisemaking features. PLEASE REMOVE THE GUN SOUND! My neighborhood had two men shot leaving shul the week before Purim. Gun sound effects in shul are the absolute last thing we need. Thanks!
Cute but doesn't actually work
Megillat ester actually comes up and you can read it so they get two starts for that's but none of the sounds work and yes I tried them all and also checked my phone volume. It's a shame, it looked pretty promising but to add insult to injury after the first few sounds didn't work they had a pop up offering me 6 more sounds for the alow price of .99
Developer Response ,
The app responds to the mute switch on your phone. That was probably the issue here. Please never hesitate to email us for support email@example.com
