  • App does not work

    By Christ' Slave
    There is no sound. I've even deleted the app and re download. I've turned my phone off and back on. Still no sound. Lessons take too long to download and you cannot do anything else on your phone while you wait or you must start the download over. Disappointed.
  • Keeps losing progress.

    Great app except that kills it.
  • Love the app but needs updating

    By SLP Ashley
    The content is great but the current version continues to crash. This was a very expensive app for me and I expect that the content could be updated and current. I use it for a variety of kids to teach reading skills through Speech Therapy.
  • Charged me for a free trial

  • Frustrating

    By Taxdollar
    Even though they charge me every month, I never have access to my purchases through the app. Really frustrating.

  • Takes forever to load/ tech problem

    By Na$@
    I love this app to the extent of paying to have it for my kids forever (paid more than $70). But it take a long time to load, not 5 or 10 minutes but more than 20mins. You guys need to fix the technical problem so that the kids can enjoy using it more. It's just frustrating!
  • Keep charging me after we stopped subscription

    By Murschmallow
    I stopped the subscription for this app several months ago, and I keep getting charged. The most recent charge being yesterday! The app didn't help my child so we uninstalled and unsubscribed long ago yet are still being billed. No reply from the app developer about this so I have decided to leave a review in hope it will get resolved.

    By Kedulac
    The reading program itself is great. My kids love it and I really saw improvement. The reason I'm only giving 3 stars is because they have technical issues with the automatic renewal they need to fix but haven't. Month after month my account is charged but when my kids go to use the app a screen pops up to select a purchase method. I've email at least 4 times (every month) and they have to go and give me access again. Why should I have to email every month to be able to use an app that I'm automatically being charged for? It's a hassle and I've had enough. If they can't fix it then it's pointless to me and I suggest anyone thinking about signing up decided if they really want to be emailing the company every month in order to use something they are already paying for. It's so disappointing to me. I would think a great company like this would be more on top of making sure their programs are running smoothly for their paying customers. I will add that they do respond in a reasonable time frame to emails, but I still feel like this should be a fairly easy fix on their part. I don't understand why they just won't fix it.
