>> Fun app for learning Chinese! *****
This app can keep my kid (2+) engaged for minutes. I am a Chinese American parent. My child is learning Chinese and English and speaks both, as well as a 2+ year old can. She can play games to review numbers, colors, fruit names, etc. I am ecstatic!
>>AMAZING APP! *****
This app is really incredible, our kids love it and it's a fun way to get them to learn The basics of Chinese... My husband even uses It to study elementary concepts. We use this on our iPad and have no problems at all. For 99 cents, this is a value! High quality education for such a low price. Get this app, you'll be happy you did. I hope they make more similar apps for Chinese education. Thanks for my new favorite app!!!
>> Awesome!! *****

Ratings and Reviews
Very cute game, but needs more. The numbers are too low and the vocabulary is very limited. Hopefully they will upgrade soon. We were done in 10 minutes... Needs to have more levels.
This is a fun app and kids enjoy language learning!
I have no problems with sound on my app. I have an iPad2 and have not yet upgraded to iOS6. It works great and I can even project it onto a whiteboard and show my students on class.
I have used this app for teaching pre-K through 1st grade beginning Chinese language students. They really enjoy it and are learning at the same time! I would love more variety in colors, fruits, and sizes in the game...maybe include higher levels of difficulty in future updates.
I loaded this on an iPad2 (said it should work with iPad under requirements) and the sound does not work. I emailed support and have not heard back. Looks like a good app but is useless without the sound.
