Wubbzy's Fire Engine Adventure [text]

What I liked My five year old enjoyed playing and listening to the story. I liked that there were 3 different ways to read: Read to Me, Read and Play and then Just a Book. The read to Me option is great for him because he is just starting to read so listening and seeing the text highlighted is beneficial.
Improvements While my five year old son likes fire trucks, I would have liked the app to have been more focused on fire trucks, the fire station and firemen. This is a cute app with bright vibrate colors and is true to the cartoon, and i can't think of any other way for it to be improved!
General review I liked that the pages are interactive, when certain pictures are touched, they do various things. I also liked the extras in this app. There are 3 videos, 2 games and coloring pages that can easily be accessed if the story doesn't want to be read.

ROAR! v1.0 [text]

What I liked I like the different scenes with different animals that needs to be "chased away" This is a very easy and loud game for little ones. The characters and drawing are cute but is one that should be offered as a free game. I can say that I did not like this app, very disappointing.
Improvements There is not any directions to tell you what you need to do. A narrator needs to come on and say what you need to do. I do wish that when you touch the animals you would be able to hear them say something, what sound they make or even a story.
General review There are no words or story to go along with this app. All you need to do is roar to chase the animals away. The downside is there are only three scenes then it starts over. I would be very upset paying 1.99 for this app. While it is rated at ages 4 and up, I would say this app would be for an age maximum of 4. I can not see kids older than 4 staying occupied with this app.
