This Xmas apps has been reviewed by various reviewers at Review for Dev. Overall it is a cute musical app where children and learn and sing along. For each song kids can select if the want to listen to c children choir or a female vocalist. While the song goes on, kids can interact with and play with all the interactive object on the screen. The best comments includes "The music is delightful and the animations are engaging.",The recorded songs are very professionally made" "a great christmas app, with great spirit for holy time."
Some of the downside were the graphics, although they are cute and colourful, the render on the iPad3 os not the best, missing a bit of crisps! and some users found too many many ways for kids to exit the app!

|What I liked||
I like the professionally recorded songs in this app. I like the female voice and my son like the choir voice. I also hear him sing a long specially in the Frosty's song. I also like the addition of an instrumental in each song. Me and my family can easily sing a long thanks to the instrumental and lyrics built in the app. I bought Jingle Bells, Frosty and We wish you. All are great.
I wish to see a Retina feature in this app. The current doesn't look that sharp or good on my iPad3. I also would like to see an option to change the Screen Orientation and lock it on my desired position. This way, I can easily use my iPad3's cover stand. I cannot use my iPad3's cover stand because it is locked on an upside-down position. Maybe adding a playlist or play next song feature would be nice. Current version only plays the same song again and again after it finishes. Maybe adding a feature to make your own playlist and or play the next song automatically would be nice.
This is a nice app specially for Christmas. The recorded songs are very professionally made. My son is having fun singing while playing with the interactive background. All the songs available in this app is great and most of them are my personal favorite. Just wishing to see "O Holy Night" and "12 days of Christmas" in the future update. Those are also my favorite Christmas songs. Also wish to see a Retina support for the New iPad.
|Christy S.: I am an elementary school teacher who is currently attending graduate school for educational technology. I am interested in all types of apps especially those in productivity, education, and games.
|Anne P.: kinder teacher, geek, iPhone5, ipad2, articulate, critical. I have purchased many apps in the past 2 years and I demand quality out of the apps that I choose. I appreciate developers who respond to critique and praise. It is vastly important for developers to listen to users, especially when those users are kids and teachers.
|Samantha M.: I am a mother to an adventurous two year old! I am always on the lookout for educational and creative apps for him. I am also a Kindergarten teacher looking for great apps for my all of my students whether it be for students with special needs, English language learners, or even struggling readers.

Slightly below GL in Math, difficulty w/ fine motor. Will dive into any app. Thanks
