Not worth the money 1/5
This is not an “app” it’s a bunch of ripetitive words in every section. You can find all those infos (and more) just googling.
Not what I was hoping for 1/5
I was really excited about this app but once I got it I quickly realized it’s pretty useless. A day by day app would be nice but it goes by leap periods. So basically it has told me nothing helpful so far other than she’ll experience a leap soon. Google is free and offers far more insight than this app.
I don't normally purchase apps but ended up buying this one because many moms recommended it. To second what others have said--it reads horrible and is repetitive in parts. It's almost like it was written in another language and then translated through a computer (only way I can think of how to describe it). Also, many of these milestones are already on a free app I've been using. Not impressed for the price.
No customer service 3/5
I got a new phone and wanted to see if I could re download without having to purchase again. I emailed 3x with no response. Dissappointing.
Confusing app layout... 1/5
My baby was born 3 weeks early and I don’t feel like using his due date is providing accurate information.
I also find the app design confusing as far as layout and information.
So helpful! 5/5
It’s a paid app, but in my opinion, it’s well worth it. It lets the user know when each leap in development is happening, and describes in depth the signs, the moods, and the new abilities. It even suggests games to play with your baby that are appropriate for each development phase. It has really helped me identify when my baby is approaching or actively going through something, and prepare for behavioral and mood changes that accompany it.
BEST $3 you will EVER spend! 5/5
This is the most accurate, most reassuring app I have ever purchased. It brings me so much sanity knowing that these leaps and fussy periods are apart of the growth spurt and knowing what to expect.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
It crashes ALL THE TIME!!! Don’t even bother!
So helpful! 5/5
For me, hearing “sometimes they just cry for no reason!” isn’t good enough for me. I want to know why!
This app really has helped me to understand and sympathize with my baby when he is going through something life changing that I otherwise wouldn’t know he was experiencing.
On harder days, it’s much easier to give my little one extra grace when I know that he isn’t just “crying because babies cry!” But Instead because he is going through a major developmental leap. This app helps to explain that!
Wish I had this for baby one! 5/5
Seriously this app and the books, have made understanding baby #2 so much easier! I love the fact that it gives me ideas to entertain baby for the current state of development- and to know when the “hard” times are on the brink of being calm for a while ! I recommend this to all moms new and pros ;)
Helpful but drawback 3/5
Love the app and all the information it provides. But I just wish I had the ability to mark when ( I think) my child had started the leap. Keep my own timetable.
So the leaps and descriptions are more or less accurate but as far as the app... well it stinks. The content is hard to read because it doesn’t flow. Most paragraphs start with the same 3 sentences (especially the 3rd leap), many spelling errors, and hard to navigate. I️ would call it amateur. I️ would expect this in a free app but not one you pay this much for.
Constant crashing and freezing 1/5
I love this app, it’s so accurate and helps me help my son and all my daycare kids through their leaps. It was great until the last update, which now constantly crashes and freezes and then when it finally does open it freezes and crashes. The worst. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if the new layout wasn’t so much more clunky and busy looking.
Useless design updates 1/5
Love the content, but quit changing the design. Tired parents don’t want to have to re-figure out how to use an app every time they open it and don’t need useless color palette changes. I hate the new design.
Not worth the $. Lastest update doesn't load 1/5
For a paid app, I expected it to offer more than just information I could have easily found on the Internet for free. What a waste of $. What's more frustrating is that the latest update has caused the app the freeze on the main screen. Now I can't even access anything!! Don't waste your time & money. You'll find just more useful stuff online.
Edit 12/18/17 - The latest version still has trouble loading. It got stuck on the first screen and tried to load for over a minute before freezing, causing me to have to force restart my phone. What a joke!
Definitely a must-have app for new parents 5/5
As first-time parents, we really appreciated the great insights this app had as we navigated the first few months of our baby. Moreover, it gave us plenty of peace of mind knowing that all of this has bona fide research to back it up. This is very important given all of the unscientific research, articles and books that “advise” you to do things that will have lasting negative consequences on your kid.
Wonderful app 5/5
I like the new update ❤️
Scary accurate! 5/5
This app is seriously so spot on with how my LO is acting and what not that it’s scary lol. Well worth my money! They also have a book! Thank god for someone telling me about this app! Now I know when my babes going to have a rough week because of a leap.
Immensely helpful 5/5
This app guided us through our little ones mental leaps and helped us understand what and why he is doing things.
The leaps were accurate and it helped us help our little one reach his milestones on time.
Love it!! Recommended it to many of my friends.
Wonderful App and a wonderful book 5/5
I love how it is synced with my phone's calendar so I know when will the next leap should be starting.
It is pretty accurate. They are clear that it's not 100% exact. You give or take one week.
Very informational and reassuring as to how my baby is to developing and what I can do to guide my baby through her leaps.
Not so sure 2/5
I've heard a lot about this app and my friends seem to rely on it a lot. They all said it was extremely accurate. I hate paying for apps which is why I was hesitant to buy it but I gave in because my son, who is 10 weeks, has been super fussy lately, eating all the time and not sleeping well at all and I wanted to see if this app would go along with what he's experiencing. Well it shows that he's currently going through a "sunny" phase but I completely disagree with that. I'll keep with the app for a few weeks to see how "accurate" it is but right now I'm not finding it that great. Please note that I did use my due date, not my son's birthday.
Not worth it 1/5
By Dae Kwon
Echoing some of the other negative reviews. The app is not doing anything fancy. It sees how far along your child is based on expected birth date and provides information based on that. You can find similar information with a google search.
I was expecting something similar to my wife’s period tracker app where it makes adjustments to the estimate based on when the actual periods occur. This app does nothing like that. The estimates are static.
App desperately needs a better writer 2/5
The writing on this app really needs to improve. It happens pretty frequently that I really don't understand what a sentence or even a paragraph is trying to convey. The value of this app is solely through its words because it is relaying information that is helpful/ useful for parents. So it is critical to get someone who can write well and convey messages succinctly and clearly. That's my two cents. The app is great other than the not-so-good writing. But that's a major drawback.
Spot on! 5/5
This has been so helpful in gauging my daughter's development! Can't live without this app!
Super helpful! 5/5
By Pvz is awesome 1
And just enough info so I can actually read it even with my busy schedule.
By Jupiter Rayne
A friend recommended this app & swore by it. I was hesitate after reading reviews and knowing it cost. I though for only $2 I'd give it a try. I took a risk and I'm so glad I did. It was spot on for my sons first leap this week. For example, I noticed my sons head last ones different, I wondered if it was bigger but wasn't sure. The app explained how his head would look bigger this week and why! The app also includes videos to pair with the info. For example, when explaining eye sight changes- there is a video showing how babies perception.
It's only day 1 with this app and I'm super stoked!
Extremely little information 1/5
By Daddy McBeardface
Get the book if you want to learn something. The app is a calendar with the weeks they think development will happen. It there was a 39 day money back guarantee I would take it.
Used to be good 3/5
This app used to be good, but it had been crashing everytime I have tried to open it the last 3 months...
What a joke 1/5
This app is really a joke and I'm so disappointed that I wasted money on it. It is extremely vague and general, and I was an idiot to fall for it. It's like reading a horoscope-- so vague that it could possibly apply to you, but has absolutely no real merit. This app is supposed to pinpoint "leaps" and tell you exactly what's happening in your child's development and exactly when, to the day, based on your child's due date. But instead you'll be told your kid *might* be acting unusual this week, or next week, or the next few weeks (or whenever?) because s/he *might* be growing and developing (duh), and s/he might be learning to do new things because of that one new thing s/he learned to do last leap that was still never really specified. I'm not kidding. It doesn't tell you anything you don't already know. We all know babies grow and develop mentally as they age, we all know they do it on somewhat of a timeline. This app does not specify anything.
This app has helped me so much. It's right on point with everything and very good with information. I literally understand my baby with all that she is going through!
Hard to go through 1/5
I don't like this app very much. It's hard to understand & it doesn't let you edit your info. In the beginning it just says name. Well I assume it wanted my name, so I put in my name. Most apps want parents info first. Not in this case. It wanted my daughters name. I can't go in & edit that part. I paid for this app. I usually don't pay for apps. But in this case I thought I'd try it. Yeah, no. I am deleting it. Needs to be more user friendly. Videos don't want to play half the time & I'm on a very good wifi at home!
Always crush or can't load 2/5
I've had this app for a few years but lately has been very buggy. I paid for the additional content. The app would not load or just crash. It has good information though.
Interesting and helpful! 5/5
I started reading the book, very interesting and we found it to be pretty on point with our growing baby! But, as she gets older I have less time to sit and read... But hooray, here is the app, a condensed version of the book! Still relevant info, helpful guides, and helps you track where in our near a leap baby is.
Cool when it actually works 2/5
I can never get this dang app to load. Like I can't remember the last time I could actually check on where we were leap wise bc it won't ever load. Such a waste bc I loved the content.
Not worth it 1/5
There's very little information for actually having to pay. Each "leap" takes so long that when it says next leap is in 17 weeks I won't even remember I have the app to look at it. Plus I'm sure a lot happens in 17 weeks for a babies development surely they could say something. The videos don't work at all not sure if it's because I have an iPhone or not. I get more info out of google which is free don't waste your money.
Generic Info. 1/5
Waste of money. You're better off reading your baby's horoscope.
Not a fan 2/5
I heard great things about this app but I don't like it at all. It's not user friendly. It tracks by your baby's due date instead of the actual birth date. It doesn't make sense to me because "40" week mark is an average. 38-42 weeks is considered full term. And it labels everything in weeks instead of months - I don't feel like doing math. It has very interesting information and facts but I feel like I'm trying to read through a text book - it's so long and boring. Just give me the highlights. I don't find the lay out user friendly or appealing. That's just my input. I much rather use Ovia Parenting.
Doesn't work with iPhone 1/5
App doesn't work with iPhones, updates don't fix the issue.
Life Saver!!! 5/5
By Miss April Julien
This app has been spot on and has eased my mind on just about every leap! My daughter is currently completing leap 10! I have told all of my new mommy friends about this app!! Now make an app for toddlers!!
Thank you Wonder Weeks!
April and little Tatum
So interesting! 5/5
I've used Apple products since the 90's, but since the birth of the App Store- I've never cared enough to write a review... until now; I love this app! So informative and helpful with understanding my babies brain function and development.
Also: I don't know why there's price complaints from other reviewers... you're typing on your $700 phone or your $1300 computer, but let's complain about $2? Okay.
Anyway, love the app!
App is not working 1/5
By True me1
Following the most recent update, the app will not launch when selected. Fix the app.
Not helpful 1/5
This app is not helpful at all. The information is very general and better info can be found on developmental stages by doing a quick Google search. The stormy and happy periods never match up with my child's moods. There are so many factors in child development and mood that this app does not take into account. This app can make you feel like your child is falling behind based on the skills they lost but ask any pediatrician out there and you will find that your child is completely fine. This app is a waste of time and money.
Very helpful for a first time mom like me 5/5
I love this app!
By Autumn and Andrew
Amazing!!! I love this app! I recommend it to all of my friends and family with babies!! It is always correct, accurate and right on time with the information!!! This is such a great help when you start wondering why your baby is fussy! And your baby really does know more and go through changes after each leap!! Thank you so much!! 5 out of 5 stars!!!
This is the first time I've ever purchased an app and I regret it. The information here is so generic and broad and does not make any sense. Every baby is so different as to when they master skills and a calendar with clouds and rain telling me when my baby will be fussy? That is ridiculous and never matches his mood of course, there are just so many factors! If you want to know more about early childhood development and what kind of activities to do with them to help them work on their skills (which is what I thought this app was and why I purchased it), just Google it.
App crashes or never loads!!! 1/5
Please fix it!
Has came in handy! 4/5
Really like this app super helpful! Think everyone with a baby should get it!
Love it but one glitch 5/5
Love it! The app is very helpful in understanding what is normal and what to look for each day for a new mom. I especially love the suggestions for playing with and for calming my son. There is a glitch: where it personalizes a sentence with 'he/she' or 'him/her' it sometimes says 'b-himhercapitol'. It takes a moment to understand what I'm reading. Regarding content and user friendliness, this app is great.
Waste of money 2/5
I wish I didn't waste the money. The information is very basic and never matches up with what my son is going through. I find more useful information on the internet.
Love this app!! 5/5
This app is always spot on for my baby.
