|What I liked||
The story is just about the right length to keep a toddler entertained and engaged. The interactive pages in the story are well done, with indicators for the child to know where to tap if they get stuck and good verbal feedback. The huge button on launch is great.
I couldn't find a way to exit the story and go back to the main menu (if there is a gesture to do this I missed it). The back arrow won't get you back to the main age because you get stuck in a loop with the page with the sunrise (and perhaps others).
I would have liked to see a game or learning activity included with the story (would help justify the price, certainly).
My daughter enjoyed this app, the story is engaging and short enough to keep a toddlers attention throughout the whole thing. A lot of care was taken to 'childproof' the app (long tap to access settings, no in app purchases, sharing is only accessible in the parents screen).
|Nico D.: I'm a ex designer and full-time teacher so I have a very good perspective on design elements and user interface. I have been actively testing apps for more than 1 year. I can test educational apps with kids ages 2 to 10 and have there perspective. The most important thing for me is to correctly rate an app regardless of the money I'm getting.
