  • Subscription problems

    I accidentally hit the yearly purchase and thought I had cancelled it. I then purchased monthly but was charged for both and it won’t allow me to cancel the $38 purchase and has been charging me the monthly subscription. Not worth the cost of $4 monthly and definitely not worth $38.
  • Must buy subscription

    Virtually Everything useful needs to be purchased, and you have to have pay for a subscription. Disappointing.
  • Will take your money but it won’t give you access to your subscription

    Bought subscription, everything is still locked. No way to even connect your purchase without going through the purchase process again.
  • Love it!

    Really love the app, it has great and different activities to choose from daily! One issue though is that I get logged out randomly. The past week every time I go to open the app I have to log back in. If I weren’t opening it to then immediately interact with my son it wouldn’t be an issue, but that’s exactly what I’m doing and it gets frustrating.
  • Makes you log in EVERY TIME you use it

    I liked the idea of this app, so I went ahead and bought a subscription so I could access the activities. Since then, I’ve been disappointed with it. This app is buggy, clunky to use, and hard to navigate. It’s absolutely not worth the price. As other reviewers have pointed out, the app constantly logs you out of it. There is also no option to save user info, so I have to type my email and password every time I open it — not a great feature on an app that should be opened several times a day. It also tends to randomly crash. There was no option to invite additional caregivers, unlike other baby apps I have used. My husband tried logging in using my information, but despite claims to sync across devices, we couldn’t get activities he did with our daughter to show up on my phone, and vice versa. Finally, the app as a whole is clunky and difficult to navigate. For example, there’s no obvious way to preview an activity. I like to overview everything on the list first so I can plan out my daughter’s activities. That way I know which activities can easily be grouped together and which ones need special equipment. But when you click on an activity to get more information, the app assumes you are doing it immediately. This app does have great ideas for ways to play with my newborn, which is why I gave it three stars. I also appreciated that it keeps track of my preemie’s real age and adjusted age. However, for this price, I would have expected a far more refined app. I feel like I could have gotten the same amount of information from a book, with a lot less frustration.
  • Unusable - paid lifetime subscription

    Update: The developer did respond to my email by telling me to delete and download the app again. I was able to access the paid videos. However I still have to log in every time I try to use it and logging in requires typing in your full email and password. When you have a baby ready to play it’s incredibly inconvenient and prevents me from using it much. For an almost $40 app (I have never paid this much for an app), it is not worth it. Despite paying the lifetime subscription, the subscription videos are locked and when I click on them, I am told to purchase a subscription again. When I look in the app to see my purchase history, it had no record of my purchase. However, I have an Apple receipt for the subscription and when I purchased it, it worked for a few days. In addition, I am constantly signed out and there is no option to save log in info or use fingerprint log in. As result I have to type my email and password every time. I have contacted the developer but so far I have received no response. There should be option to refund apps that do not work.
