What Reviewers at Review for Dev Liked!
Wubbzy’s Train Adventure has been reviewed by ten reviewers at Review for Dev. Kids familiar with Wubbzy’s character just loved it. All liked the three reading mode and many really enjoyed the just “JUST A BOOK” feature. Being able to read without the interactive activities is a great incentive for a bedtime story! Some of the best comments: “OUTSTANDING app for young children. My five-year-old loves this app. I am especially impressed with how much of each page of the book is interactive.” ; “a fun storyline exploring aspects of the trains, railways and cabins which are not commonly explored by other storybook apps.”; “There are so many things to do with this app from reading the book to watching videos and playing games!”
On the downside, some user of iPad 3 had issues when watching the videos and parents and kids not familiar with the show did not relate to the story so well. This access to the app store is to easy for the littles fingers … It will be really great if Cupcake Digital finds a way to make it for parents only!
Wubbzy’s Train Adventure is available for download via the iTunes App Store - Universal App

Below are all the comments from Review for Dev
|Eric L.: I am an independent iOS app developer in the afternoon and an embedded systems engineer during the day. I created and maintain the iOS app GradeBook Pro (www.gradebookapp.com) and a few other, smaller, applications.|
I can test apps with my own children (girls, 3 & 1) and nieces/nephews aged from 4 - 10.
|What I liked||
This is an incredibly well done children's book (even if no activities were included). The voice acting is done well and both the text and diction were very easy to understand and read. The music is appropriate. The activities are relevant and intuitive.
This is very minor stuff but I did notice a few things while tinkering with the app. The main thing that we noticed (my daughter is three and spent some time with the app) was the lack of gesture-based page turning. She is used to being able to turn the page with a swipe gesture so that was what she expected to happen. It was easy enough to show her the arrows but a tiny bit less intuitive.
Overall, I dislike this app immensely because my daughter asks to play with it on her iPod before bed and never wants to go to bed. We've had it for two days and she has heard the story and played through most of the activities multiple times already.
|Andrew M.: Father of three young girls; middle school principal; chair of daycare board of directors; "connected educator"; former Language Arts teacher; avid reader; passionate about equipping colleagues with powerful tech tools
|Amellia M.: I am a very busy first grade teacher and mom of three. I serve as our school technology coordinator among MANY other roles and duties. I am a self proclaimed nerd and proud to be hard working and forever busy.
|Lena L.: I am a mother of four active kids who works from home full time and also homeschools all four of my children. I use the Ipad on a daily basis to reinforce lessons for school work as well as allowing time for creative play with apps. I am always on the look out for the newest and greatest app.
|Nathalie C.: I'm a digital publishing consultant involved in apps for kids conception and improvment. I run an app review website, www.declickids.fr. I'm also a mother of 2 kids, the eldest one, Ulysse, helping me out with reviews. My secret plan is to make app's world better for kids all over the world, on app at a time (and your's is next !) ;)
|Courtney D.: My name is Courtney and I am an SLP. I love working with children of all ages, but find I have a particular passion for children with special needs. I love technology and the impact it can have on the students in the therapy room.
|Eric P.: I am an iOS developer turned blogger. I review iPhone and iPad apps on my blog: http://geekswithjuniors.com.

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.
|Mandy N.: I have three special needs children that I love dearly. They have learned soo much from apps and love to share about apps that they use as well as apps I use. Children can learn soo much with the iPad when used as a teaching item as well as a fun gaming device :)
