Whose idea to put a coloring image of a little boys underpants in the app? Very pervy and creepy. Trying to find out who to report this too. I dunno - U for umbrella, ukulele, university, universe, even undershirt. But a pair of tightie-whities. Inappropriate. Parents - examine everything.
For the videos on letter L it keeps saying the letter “A” like “A”, Leaf, “A” Lion For the letter H it turns green when you haven’t even finished tracing it, actually for a lot of the letters it “accepts” the trace unfinished. The orange arrow that gets kids from the videos to drawings to hide and seek gets stuck a lot and is impossible to move sometimes. I often have to try at least ten times to move it or just give up. A very weak app for a paid app. I wish there was more educational value and less “fun”. The only valuable part is the tracing and the three videos that correlate to the sound, the drawing is dumb because screen is too small to actually color AND it doesn’t teach anything, and the hide and seek is defective and doesn’t really help them learn anything.
I bought the full version of Elmo years ago and now with a new iPad, my child wants it back. I have added them to my account that it was bought from. Now it will not let her download it without paying $4.99. I would like to know how to do it without being charged.
Great app, ignore that other review. Hey retired teacher, Avocado Acapulco Almond Aunt Author Also Autism Palm Psalm Pasta...
Just downloaded and L sound is same as A. How can this be fixed? Thanks.
what moron thought it was ok to let kids save pictures?
I downloaded the free version first, and thought that buying the full version would be beneficial since I would have all the letters of the alphabet for my daughter to work on. However, the letters A, J and N do not work. I was under the impression that all the letters would be working in the full version.
My great-nephew loves playing on this app. However, as a retired teacher, I was dismayed that Elmo and the astronaut both said ahhh for the "a" sound. The letter "o" makes the ahhh sound while "a" makes the short a sound. I just bought the whole app for him, so I hope there are no more errors with letter sounds. Hopefully, you can change this problem with an upgrade.
My grandsons love this app. No tech problems with it at all. Maybe it’s been improved since negative reviews were written. We love it!
People please get this app the videos are sooooo funny
One of the best kids apps around. Engaging, fun and educational. Beautifully designed with constant surprises and so many different clips to watch with each letter. Quickly became a favourite after downloading, and remains at the top of our list, no matter how many new apps we buy. My son has autism, and it's very hard to hold his attention. The fun way the alphabet is presented here keeps him interested and coming back for more. He's happy to let me help him draw the letters, which would be a near impossible task with a pencil and paper. Apps like these are vital tools for kids like my son.
Thrilled with this app - a fine mix of education and fun, and nostalgia for parents who grew up in the 80s! Worth upgrading from lite and the huge download. My son doesn't want to do anything else...
Elmo talks all the way thru this, really excellent my daughter loves it. Only problem is some of the vids are from the 70s and 80s and the sound level goes up and down too much between videos ... Needs normalizing
My 4yr old & 20month old love it!!! Educational & hrs & hrs of fun!!!
Have been unable to download.... half way through keeps coming up with error
This is such a great app for kids! The best bit is the personalization and the ability to add your own videos, pictures and sounds for letters. Really great tool for learning the alphabet. Highly recommended or kids who love Elmo and Sesame Street
Audio doesn't seem to work properly all the time and my 4 year old gets very frustrated waiting! Hope they develop a fix soon because it would be a great preschool app otherwise
Do not buy it
I like the game but, it crashes when you switch to the other game mode.(from abc's to find the letter) the other reviewer said the same thing! I spent 5 bucks on this app and I can only play part of it!! Fix it! Now! Fix it! Other than that, fun to play, Elmo and everyone is there! Good mix of old and new! Wonderful! But fix the glitch!
Bought this for my son so he could have a different game to play and to help with letters. I'm a little disappointed because the lower case letter game will close the app. Please fix this.
If my 22 month-old nephew sees my iPad, he'll come over, say "hi" in a super adorable way and says is: "Elmo? ABC?" I have several free apps for my nephew, but a few weeks ago, I was done with just the A, B and C options with this app's free version. I downloaded the full version, yes, paying the $4.99 cost. My issue with the full version is the size of the app. My 3rd generation iPad is not just for apps for my nephew, so app size becomes a huge issue when it's to the point I have to delete things for system updates! The really irritating thing is that there is Elmo app update pending and I'm only writing this review because it's a 600+ MB update! My question to the developers: why on earth is this app already over 700 MB and need a 600 MB update? It seems extremely large when several other apps are just as detailed and are much smaller (including their updates)?
And I've tried a lot of them! Tons of content, grows with my 2 year old.
This app is good for kids and the graphics are excellent however be mindful it will take a lot of storage space. It's taken up 703MB of storage on the iPad. If you have room, it's a great and educational download.
This app is awesome. My 2 year old uses it every day and it's helped him learn his alphabet. The ability to customize the videos is a super cool bonus. I highly recommend it!
We purchased this app thinking it would be good to help our children write there letters. The only thing this app has taught them is how to scribble in the letters and not write them. I would not recommend this app to anyone. I give it a 0/5!
My daughter loved this app but since I tried to update it no longer works. Very disappointing. Wish I could get my money back,
Loved this app until I tried to update it, now its locked up...pretty sure I paid for this so i'm not happy.
My son is a HUGE Elmo fan and loves this app. It's really helped him learn his letters at 18 mos. Highly recommend.
