Fun educational app, great customer service

Great idea, and engages kids well. I had some trouble when we first installed it, relating to use of a phone rather than a tablet. This led to some frustrating mixed messages for my kids about what was or was not right.

The Plugo team was incredibly engaged and helped me resolve the issue, probably involved changing some app settings on their end even.

I have been slow updating my prior negative review and feel badly about that, this team deserves a lot of credit for this great educational app

Developer Response ,

Hi Alan - Apologies for the experience. We definitely strive for making learning fun and accurate for kids! We did not design the experience to be the way you described, and it definitely sounds something of an AR detection issue or bug. iPod is not in our compatible device list, hence we have not tested it on iPods. We would love to resolve this asap. Can you please connect with us on our customer care email id so that we can help resolve this.

Buggy Software

For the price of the equipment, the software still leaves A LOT to be desired. The English language translations are often clunky, the verbal request for an answer to a problem or puzzle repeats endlessly and we end up muting most of the time. The algorithm that choses difficulty levels seems a little random offering too broad a choice of problems to solve. The spelling is the same every time you visit a lesson and doesn’t provide a fresh set of words to spell each visit.

The plus side is the equipment is very well made and all has a nice feel to it. It is pretty colors and the design is perfectly cute for kids.

I really hope the developers put a lot more effort into smoothing the bugs out of the software otherwise it would just feel like I paid too much for this system.

Very engaging

My 5 and 8 year old can’t put these games down. Engineering is loved by my 5 year old. They also have fun with Grammar, Music, Math and Tacto. Learning piano using the iPad is quite fun way to teach to use all fingers, fine motor skills. Once we found the correct angle to align iPad we have not had a moments problem. I recommend these because they are entertaining and engaging games but learning all the while.
