How I Use It
The idea of this product is great but the execution of it is terrible. It’s extremely glitchy and the menu controls regularly don’t work properly.
My Take
This app is better suited to older students who are already familiar with using similar apps to this. For 4th graders who’ve never used something like this it’s an absolute disaster. Without a parent at home to help with it this app is extremely challenging to use and it’s menu controls don’t work properly and are glitchy. There has to be some better apps out there than this one. It feels like something from 1995.
