Missing so many thing! 1/5
I’m not sure how this app is rated at 4 stars when the first word I heard it say was “ Doggie” that is not a word, and definitely not something I want an educational app to encourage my child to say. Fault number two I noticed within the first five minutes, the app gave me a grade because I moved through it too quickly. Given the lack of challenge within the content, I should have moved through it quickly and so would’ve my child. This app is for children who don’t need to be challenged in any way and are behind on the learning curve. Also there is no reason to give grades and if I have to pay for this app then every portion of it should be unlocked. My children go to school to grade themselves they don’t need an app to do that for them. Starfall is better. I downloaded this because I was excited about the offline play but I see this app is just another pay for play game that if not monitored will rot your kids brains.
Not worth it 2/5
I got charged $64 at 3 weeks, a week before the fee trial ended.
The apps are hard for my daughter and they have only a few we can use. That are locked even after I paid THAT much?!?
Needs serious work - update 4/5
Initial review below but glad to say the latest update fixed the issue.
This app stalls and freezes every single time my child attempts to use it. No way I’m paying for this after the trial is done.
Very Disappointed 1/5
This app was not what it claimed. I couldn’t figure it out, much less my kids. I was charged without knowing it. We didn’t have access to everything. It’s not anything I would ever use and I homeschool my young children and can use all the resources. It was over-all disappointing. Thankfully, Apple refunded my money, although I was still responsible for the tax. 😩
awesome educational app but !! 5/5
Literally This App is great and very useful but the sound of most videos are really low and I believe that the developers need to make update because the app is really heavy and need really strong internet spot !!
Total scam! 1/5
No where in the title did this”FREE” app say that it would automatically renew after just 2 weeks for a full year’s subscription! When the $59.99 hit my account, I traced it back to this app and only after expanding the second description section of the app and scrolling ALLLLLL the way to the bottom do you see the portion explaining the auto-renewal. This is a total UDAP violation, as the consumer has to take additional action to find the “fine print” that explains this app was just a free trial that will auto renew with a whopping annual fee they automatically charge to your card. Couldn’t auto-renew into the lower monthly fee, NOOOOOO! Had to be the annual one. Don’t waste your time or money by falling for their misleading marketing tactics. Stay away from this app and developer!!!!!
Impossible to cancel free trial!!! Beware!!! 1/5
I followed the instructions provided to cancel the free trial but there is absolutely no option to cancel.
It notes that I can resubscribe so at first I assumed it wouldn’t automatically subscribe after the free trial time frame....but no where confirms this!
Impossible to cancel subscription!!!!
By Moji & Chuck
It seemed like a good concept, but all the games seems to be done on PowerPoint then converted to the app. The art with Disney characters are probably not copyrighted. If you are going to charge so much money for the app to be a subscription, you need to make the content less buggy.
Too complicated 1/5
By Rocky suelyn
I can’t understand this app what says my 3 year old. It’s too complicated. Like a bunch of Apps in one. Too difficult and wayyy too expensive for Apps that are not worth it.
TinyTap is a great school\home app for any aged kids 5/5
It is a very creative app.
Tiny Tap 3/5
I downloaded this app on IPhone X and on our IPad Mini2 and with each device experienced a glitch when select an activity the option screen for the annual monthly or try it for free screen appears I figure no biggie and select the X on the top right and and click on the refresh button when you try to input your answers the screen just freezes up worse kids think they are doing something wrong so I try to click on the refresh button again hoping it would clear up but screen remains frozen so only thing I could think of to do is to exit activity and try another one so when you do the very same thing happens. I see great potential and it captivated my kids attention but as soon as they could not move foward they lost interest.
Can’t seem to cancel and it’s pretty frustrating 3/5
I’m trying to cancel the subscription before it gets to starting to charge me and the way it says online to cancel it’s not like that for the iPhone X... I’m pretty frustrated because i don’t want to get charged for something i don’t want to keep on my phone.... anyone else know how to cancel it?
Doesn’t Work, Be Warned - Auto Subscription! 1/5
By New mom getting back
Downloaded and doesn’t work great. Lots of bugs and needs major work. Also you get free two weeks but then instead of auto-subscribing you for one month at 7.99 it auto-subscribes you at a whooping 59.99!!! Deleted and unsubscribed immediately!
Charged $60 & never signed up!!!!
Worst app I’ve ever used 1/5
By The ATM 4
This is the worst app I’ve ever used, it never even works. Deleting it and canceling my account.
I cannot hear anything 4/5
First time I used it worked fine no the sound doesn’t seem to work no matter what I try to do
No sound 2/5
I can not get the sound to work and no customer service bottom or anything
Because of the high review, I decided to give this a shot but I’m very unimpressed with it.
Mostly, that it offers a “family subscription” but doesn’t allow for more than one profile. It lets you see what games they suggest based off your scores but don’t allow you to swap between children.
That’s kind of huge for me, especially as a home schooling mother of multiple kids. It’s also frustrating that the profile is in my name now with no way to edit it.
By World Language teacher
Sometimes, the sound does not work! .
My daughter purchased the 1 year plan—so that’s pretty annoying because we don’t want this application.
On top of that, however, I can’t even restore the purchase because the app locks up when tapping the restore button.
So we’re basically out $60 that we didn’t want to spend to begin with. We’re going to contact the company to see if we can get a refund. Will update then.
UPDATE: Based on the Customer Service response I’ll keep this at 1 star.
As ridiculous as YouTube 1/5
My 3.5 year old son didn’t like this at all. It’s just slides and poor quality audio uploaded by random people. I don’t understand how it’s regulated, which I don’t like or trust. We didn’t like the lessons and they didn’t hold his interest for more than 30 seconds. He is usually very interested in new apps but he actually asked me to delete this one. Don’t waste your time.
I was charged unknowingly. I canceled the subscription but was happy that my daughter could use it for a year then I find out the sound doesn’t work at all on the app. I checked every setting and there’s no mute on iPad the sound either off or on period. Saw several other complaints about the sound so then I realized I wasn’t going crazy.
No sound. Locks up. 2/5
It took forever to get the first level in my daughters age range to load either it locking up, I had to shut the app down and reopen it. Now it has no sound no matter what I try. My volume is up, the mute is untapped. I’m doing the free trial but at this rate I’ll be canceling. I have an iPhone 7plus.
I use the free 1 month for my toddler I deleted the app because my son was just not interested. Next thing I know I have been charged for a whole year when the app didn’t even give me the option of choosing to pay month by month subscription. They just charged me for a whole year. Not cool... I had to look into iTunes cloud to show me how to unsubscribe... :( more than $50.00 dollars down the drain for nothing...
Go to ABCmouse or ixl instead 1/5
Compared to other things I use like abc mouse, epic and ixl I don’t like this app at all
Unable to reach anyone 1/5
I've been billed after I've deleted the app, but I can't get a hold of anyone to cancel my subscription. It's a poor set up and very frustrating for a kid to use hence why I deleted it.
Don’t even get it to try - They will take your $ 1/5
SCAMMY - SCAMMY - SCAMMY
I downloaded many children learning apps for my grandson to try (about 10).
This one was so obnoxious about getting us to buy it instead of letting us explore it that I deleted the app quickly. .... only to find a yearly subscription charge on my bank account related to an expired 2 week trial period that ended.
I don’t know how I got a free trial that ended with this subscription. I tried to resolve this with the app. I can’t find a customer service phone number or any help/ direction at all. There is a question board where other people have expressed being wrongly / mistakenly charged but I did not see any resolutions or advisories from app Support. I did find an email that my free 2 week trial had started. It also had no contact information. I did reply to this email with my concern. I haven’t heard back yet.
I had to go to the App Store & learn how to review my purchases & then unsubscribe to the app this way. This does not let me know of any refunds or reimbursements, though.
Even if I was had mistakenly signed up for a free 2 week trial that clearly states it would automatically charge me for a years subscription at the end of that time .... where is the support? Where is the customer Service? Where is the questions by others on the wrongly / mistakenly charged accounts being answered? This is where I find the validation for a scammy software that makes you trip over the purchase button so much that you give up on the app to be charged for a year... & coincidently no clear way to solve it.
~ Angry & disappointed ~
OPEN this app with great care or NOT AT ALL.
Looks cool but stuff not working with iPhone 2/5
No sound for 3 year old game. Sadly she cannot play it. I’ve tried several remedies but I can’t get sound on. Seemed really cool
Difficult to cancel 1/5
It’s subscription based, pay per month. Not worth the money and I can’t figure out how to cancel before my free subscription is up
Why can't i create my own video 4/5
I don't have the + icon that allows me to create my own videos
Good concept, but UI needs work 3/5
As a parent, the concept sounds great. But my initial experience with the app was really poor on iPhone X. First of all, the resolution is for an older iPhone and the UI got stuck a couple of times within the first 5 minutes of use. The subscription pop up is really annoying for a first time user who just wants to understand how the app works. I tapped on the playground detective and the subscription thing pops up, I close it and go to the learning plan tab and tap start. What do ya know it starts with playground detective. There’s no instructions so I tap around the screen a few times and the subscription pops up again. I close it once more and the game is frozen. In that moment I decide this app is broken on my phone. Let me know when it’s a normal experience on the latest iPhone.
So frustrating 1/5
First off I didn’t confirm any subscription and there was no option to confirm which subscription I wanted after the free trial. I had told delete the whole app and download again just to get back to that option. Secondly it asked for my information even asked if I was the parent and now the profile is under my name and it should be my sons name and age, now it’s showing my name and there is NO ABSOLUTE OPTION To correct it! Definitely gonna cancel after my free trial for my son. See so many complaints for the same reasons. Fix the app.
Not free 1/5
After downloading, it makes you pay for a subscription to use it.
Beyond excellent app AND customer service 5/5
This app is awesome. I love that I can engage children of all ages with fun, personalized games. My two year old loves it and so do the students I work with in K-5. The dashboard is easy to use and I love creating games that kids enjoy.
Beyond the app, the excellent customer service from Ania, Gil, and the rest of the amazing TinyTap team has been WOW! I will not hesitate to recommend this app to fellow educators and friends with kids.
By robloxs awsome
Awsome game me and my Best friend are playing it
أني تاب 5/5
My favorite app for adult English learners 5/5
I use this app weekly with my adult EL learners. They enjoy the games I create, and I enjoy making them. At first I had a difficult time figuring out how to make new content, but once I watched the how-to videos, it was easy and fun to make.
I was really looking forward to creating custom lessons for my nephew with Down Syndrome to help with his speech etc. However I am very let down that you can only creat your own lessons on a Ipad. This App has so much potential but I won't be renewing after my free trial.
Grateful Dad 5/5
This app is our savior. My son loves using my phone during long car rides, and I'm delighted that he is finally playing games created by actual teachers. When I'm able to, I sit with him while he plays, and I find myself learning, too - about the subjects that are most appropriate for his age and the approach that professional educators use when relating to students. Thank you! To all the teachers stocking the TinyTap marketplace with lessons: keep up the good work!
What a ROB! 1/5
I had it downloaded as it said “free” I looked it up, and I didn’t like it so I deleted the app long time ago! but it still keep billing me for $60!!
Did not know was downloaded and definitely didn’t know about a 60 dollar charge I got a 60 charge which I didn’t ok.
Too difficult to cancel 1/5
I've emailed the company twice and have not been able to find out how to cancel this purchase. It does not fit the needs of my toddlers and I've combed through the entire app to figure out how to cancel before my card is charged! The company is no help they simply recommended I try different games for my children instead of telling me how to cancel.
Good idea, bad business practice 2/5
Good idea for an app in general but the almost impossible to find and very small amount of mis-"information" on how to access subscriber settings, such as billing and cancelling, is misleading and borderline deceptive. Lots of potential if the company gets rid of the film flam.
Monthly Subscription, no "In-app purchases" 1/5
Looks cool, but misleading. It says "in app purchases," but this is not true. You have to sign up for a $4.99/month subscription to even access anything, which gives you 1 free month.
Great concept 1/5
Great games (if they would work)... app crashes all the time... I couldn't even play the first game at first... it finally opened and crashed again.. many of the controls don't work.. including filter feature so you can choose what kind of activity you want... fix bugs and this can potentially be a great app...
Worst app 1/5
By A mama who needed this!
Do NOT download this app. The interface is horrible. It is so non-user friendly. Even after getting the "free trial" i was charged 10$ and almost all of the in app "lessons" are still locked. Majority of the games come with impossible instructions that aren't useful. My child really struggled to enjoy it, I struggled to enjoy it. Especially after the misrepresentation of the free trial, and sneakily charging my on file debit card. I've already tried contacting their customer service. We'll see how that goes. The app is just a mess, and there are much much better options out there. That don't cost 11$ for crappy content.
Hard to use 1/5
I just spent 45 minutes making an asl game for my daughter and I lost it all because I didn't understand how to add a question to a picture. I tried to add the activity and then record a question and that didn't work. The help you receive on making a game is not very helpful at all. I couldn't figure out how to get back to the initial videos that explained things better. I also did not understand the requirement for spoken language within a game? My daughter can't hear it so why should I have to record it?
Hate it 1/5
I don't like the interface of the app. When I chose a category rated for my child's age (3) the task was simple, HOWEVER, it didn't explain what was supposed to be done. It had it written out in very small font. My almost 3 year old can not read full sentences. I ended up deleting the app. Awful.
Better than ever! 5/5
I have been using TinyTap for a few years, and cannot believe the impact it has had on my students. Appropriate for any age/grade level, or any content area. My first graders can use this without much assist. I also use this instead of boring PowerPoints for my adult PD. Thanks, TinyTap!
