Old iPad = Bad app experience

It’s Sad that such a good educational system gets so many bad review, coz they are either using old and rusty iPads or an iPad with no space..

The globe (Orboot) and the app together is a great system of learning for kids kindergarten and up.. I personally feel it’s best if used with kids second grade and up.. even adults can learn a lot..

The new addition oko park is great.
I hope the developers keep up the good work and keep updating the app so it become better and better .its come a long way already.

In the tour portion I would like something where u are a train or a plane and u start from where u live and go around exploring the world bit by bit so it becomes like a game and there is achievements and prizes as you progress .

Also It would be great if u guys could lower the price o the globe a little so more people buy it.. also please add activities for the kids to do within the app

Orboot should be owned by every home schooler or those parents who use the iPad as an education tool for their kids..

The potential for the app to grow is limitless .. it’s up to developers to seek new ideas and evolve Orboot into something every kid enjoys do it..

No compatibility

It’s one thing for people to dismiss complaints about this product not working with older iPads and it is an entirely different matter when those iPads are listed as being compatible with the product and then told for months that there is an issue with the app that is being worked on but then several updates later is no closer to being resolved. If I had purchased this assuming it would work with the iPad I had designated for my daughter and then found out they were not compatible it would be one thing, but I verified they were compatible before purchase and then have been stuck with the message that “You’re working on it,” indefinitely. If not compatible then don’t list it as compatible and then try to fix it after launch. Or at the very least, actually fix the issues before you develop the new features that continue not to be available for those other customers you screwed over.

My kids love it!

It’s become part of our nightly routine and my kids LOVE it! My top suggestions would be to work a bit more on OKO Park. There seems to be quite a few bugs and my children and myself get frustrated. My children are quite young but even I cannot figure out some of the issues with the “zones” nor can we exit out. Various hints and suggestions as to what exact things need be placed or removed would allow kids to learn while solving the problem.

Hello Alka,

Thanks for the review and showing interest in PlayShifu products. Glad to hear that kids love using the Shifu Orboot globe. Thanks for your valuable feedback and suggestion. The exit option for Oko Park will be released in upcoming updates, we are working on it. Please write to us at if you have any questions or any suggestions. We'd be happy to hear from you!
