    It is a great way to enjoy and learn for the kids. Being able to select from auto play, play page by page, read yourself are great ways to increase the reading level. You can point on the pictures to have the word spoken and written out.

    They never even bothered to change the screen size for the years they have been making this app. 99 percent of Android phones are widescreen and these are in 4:3 ratio. This company sucks. We don't have work choice but you're better off just getting the physical book.
