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.

Sleepscapes: peace and mindfulness for all ages

My children and I both enjoy the calming stories and peaceful music. This is a great app to help little insomniacs. My 3 yr old requests it as a way to self-regulate and metabolize strong emotions. The graphics are gorgeous. The app is much more than simple coloring. It tells a story while you reveal fantastical or alien or magical scenes. We hardly ever finish a “sleepscape” at night because we nod off! That is of course the point! Highly recommend for those too young or active for silent meditation. Our family uses it for decompressing as well as falling asleep. This app is part of our mindfulness routine. I highly recommend it.

They Trick You and Charge More Than Advertised!!

I paid $0.99 for the free trial. I made sure to cancel my subscription before the trial had ended. When you do that, it takes you to a very misleading page that says, "We'll Really Miss You!" and you think you have successfully canceled. But in fine print it tells you that you have to email them in order to really cancel. I ended up getting charged $120 without my knowledge ($60 every 3 months). Not only did I not agree to this, but their app advertises $40 ANNUALLY. So they charged me $80 more than I would have previously thought. No matter how you look at it, that's wrong. They're going to steal your money. I have been working hard with PayPal and Loóna to get a refund. So far, I have been denied, and now they aren't responding to me. I am beyond angry, and I really did not need this extra headache. Soooo unprofessional and terrible customer service. It looks like I'm not the only one they have done this to either. Just disgusting and infuriating. DO NOT give them access to your money. They cannot be trusted.
