Ease of play

During parts of the app, kids move Juno and Rai Rai around on the screen by tapping and holding an arrow. This isn't intuitive at first. The rest of the app gives direction more clearly.

QUALITY

JUNO JR'S THE DAY THE MUSIC STOPPED is a multifaceted story that includes video and games in addition to the story itself. During the portions where the story is read, the words are not highlighted, nor can kids tap the words to hear them again. The story itself may lose appeal quickly, but the included songs and mini-games will delight kids over and over again. The melody mini-game in particular allows for creativity and experimentation. The music education and theme are nicely carried throughout the book, and the animation and live-action puppets are well done.
