    I am trying to sign up for the free trial to see if my son likes the game but I keep getting “purchase failure, unknown reason. Error 7” after putting in my birth year. Please let me know how to proceed because I think he would really enjoy this.
  • So Much Fun!

    (Update: they fixed the problem! Yaaaay!) I was going to sign my youngest up for this app, but when I installed it, went to Parent, and tried to add my email address it wouldn’t bring up my keyboard on my iPhone. I can see the cursor blinking but it doesn’t give me an option to type anything (by automatically pulling up the iPhone keyboard.)
  • Bugs from the start

    I downloaded the app and tried to create an account, and the app wouldn’t load a keyboard for me to use. Too bad. I really hoped my 5 year old would get a kick out of it.

    Keyboard doesn’t show up when trying to create an account. Doesn’t allow pasting either. Completely unusable app.
