  • Total scam!!

    By #1smiles
    After opening this app I actually had to go back to see if I had accidentally downloaded the free version instead of the paid version...that's how little of this app is accessible for the purchase price!! It's ridiculous!!! Do not waste your money!! I want to access more of the app for my autistic son who is obsessed with all things Eric Carle, but I refuse to give this company one more cent of my money!
  • What a waste of money!

    By Sjstover
    I am so disappointed in this app!! I purchased it and 1. Not all the features work 2. You have to pay additional money on top of the $5.00 to have access to the entire app. My daughter was in tears because the main features are broke. A WASTE OF MONEY
  • Scam - a ripoff of the real hungry caterpillar

    By Melbatoast512
    Barry and Emmit O'neill (the producers of this D minus effort) owe my son $5. There's less than 10 minutes of content available before you have to buy more. Shameful.
  • Junk app

    By angryiphone
    Try's to look like hungry caterpillar. Book nowhere to be found. Only crap themed mini games. Horrible. Waste of 5 bucks.
  • Terrible

    By IanIsNotACommonNickname
    A total scam. Everything your kid will try to do will try to extort money from you. And that's after paying $4 for the app. A shameful piece of junk.
  • Scam

    By lindalenn
    This app will want more money from you to unlock so your child can play. I paid the initial price, and now they want more money so my kid can actually play beyond the first page. So annoying. Also, I expected that you could read the actual book, but that isn't here. There is just some longer factual stuff that my son has no interest in
  • NOT worth downloading

    By Kinsleysmommy10
    I was very dissapointed in this app. The mini games were too complicated. I am a big Eric Carle fan so this was very dissapointing!
  • Doesn't Work, Give me a refund!

    By BigBeefPatty
    Can't even complete download. Tried five times and won't work. Give me my money back!!
  • Disappointing

    By Lovebabbyapps
    Not sure if there is an exact audience for this. Frustrating delays between sections and 3.5 year old gets bored with the long intros. Definitely not worth the $4.99 price tag, but has potential.
  • "Kitchen Sink" approach to UI design is frustrating

    By PatronusCharms
    After reading the Children's Technology Report review for this app I was excited to see that another Eric Carle product had been released with such glowing praise. I confess that after trying the app for myself I'm a little disappointed, not because the content is poor but because the UI and UX experience is frustrating and counterintuitive. The app manages to be overly simplistic in its button design and overly complex in its navigation, which is a weird duality that does not do much for the user when taking in the charm of Eric Carle's excellent artwork. Why are there arrow buttons in addition to the 3d swipe functionality that this developer is known for? Why are some UI elements so completely integrated into the illustrations that you don't notice that they're there (such as when you're earning ducks during the counting game), but others (like the page nav arrows and menu UI) are ostensibly bad, pixelated clip art? It is just weird to me to have so much taken care of with an app of this caliber, and then have some crucial elements be messy and overly complicated. Not what I expected. Hoping for a refinement update soon.
