Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

My kid loves this app

Boy, my kid really loves this app. It somehow hits the right spot for him. Whenever he gets home from daycare, it's often "Homer! Homer!" I like how it's very educational and how it's so much better than other distractions like TV (and he prefers this over them). He is getting quite good at the shapes game where you match what shapes are related to what the narrator is saying. There is also little drawing-practice/writing-practice style games, memory games, simple math-related games, sing-a-longs, and other things I haven't discovered yet. My kid rather loves all the sing-a-longs. Very engaging educational app!

Overcharged us, App Lost Progress and Hassle to Cancel

Their site offer was one price, then they billed me nearly double. After working with their support they gave me a partial refund instead of canceling. Then when we got in the app, my kid gave up because his progress was lost over and over. Then we didn't use it for 11.5 months but they finally contacted us to let us know that we'll be charged again for renewal - nice to know they care about their customers. So I go to the site to try and log in. It says it sent me an email & try again. Never receiving an email - thus I can't even cancel. Now back on with support. At what point should I get paid for QA testing their app experience?
