App Reviews

  • Needs to be updated on the day it was installed.

    By power iphone
    Apple flags a message when you open this app that basically says the app needs to be updated to work with current versions of iOS. How does this even happen and I'm looking at you as well Apple. Unacceptable.
  • No sound!

    By Rey545454
    Anyone having a sound issue? How do you fix it? There is no sound on this app!
  • Fun games and puzzles

    By Kittens_420
    Kiddos play this app over and over and over. Educational and keeps their attention.
  • Overpriced

    By JW's Papa
    Not a good value. There are plenty of free and less expensive apps that offer this type of gameplay. This app is just riding on the popularity of the Curious George phenomenon. The artwork and voices also are not consistent with the other Curious George media out there, it's as if this was produced by a stay at home dad with nothing better to do. My 25 month old solved all of the puzzles within the first 15 minutes of play. The only silver lining to this app is that after the child "assembles" a character by means of an unoriginal matching shapes exercise, they are rewarded by being able to interact with the character in fun ways.
  • Problem with sound?

    By DC Wally
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled this app 3 times. I have even run a software update and reinstalled and still can't get the sound to work. My 2 year old seems to enjoy it but it doesn't hold her attention as long as other games since there is no feedback from sounds.
  • Needs an update

    By BRU430
    Some features no longer function after recent iOS updates.
  • Helped my son learn shapes

    By irina sanders
    Love this game! My son was very interested in colors and shapes after playing this game and learned them quick.
  • Too difficult for target age range

    By CakeBytes
    I don't think the developers actually tested this game with children. The controls are too difficult. The trace the shapes one is the worst, it's annoyingly difficult even as an adult.
  • So Much Not To Like

    By trust in the music
    Where to start? Shapes that won't pick up, colors named wrong, impossibly precise "draw the shape" activity (maybe it would work on an iPad, but the iPhone, no.),too easy to accidently bump the "back" button, inappropriate praise (please, praise process and effort and avoid meaningless "You're great!"). Oh, yes, and the music is maddening. I paid way too much for an app I hate this much.
  • Repair bug

    By Frustratedparents
    This was a fantastic app until the sound stopped working. Obviously requires a repair to the programming to correct the glitch.
