Her/His app reviews

What I liked I really like the graphics of the app. It's such a beautifully crafted thing this one. Interface is nice and intuitive and makes navigation very easy. There's also a lot of customization features which I really enjoyed: thy range from the colors you see on screen based on the tempo you selected, to the tempo sound you prefer. Really great and professional app.
Improvements I would like to see improvements in the optimization department. I tested the app on a iphone 4 and sometimes, while changing the tempo or interacting with certain elements of the app, I would get the feeling that the interface lags a little. Sound would be fine, just the visual elements were left behind a little. Tested with no other apps running in the background.
General review This is a really great app. I really enjoyed using it. It has very nice interface elements and options for you to customize. It's easy to use and I think every musician should try it out. Especially useful are the colored background that matches the tempo. Although there's other metronome type apps around I found this one to be the best. Great job..

What I liked The app works great. My nephew really seems to enjoy it a lot. The interface is nice and clean and the illustrations and animations are done very nicely... App is simple to navigate and the menus are easy to use and intuitive so he manages on his own. Overall I think it's a great app...
Improvements I think the app could use a little more content especially for the asking price. The app has a lot of potential but other mini games should be included as well. Something like guess the word, or objects or the color. Or mix and match. Also more sound effects wouldn't hurt enrich the experience
General review The app works as advertised and it has a very polished feel to it. My nephew just loves playing around with the ponies... Navigation is really intuitive as there re no hard to access menus or settings. Overall a very nice app for the young ones in my opinion. Definitely worth to check out...

What I liked I really like the way the app is built. It's fast and has beautiful animations. The app feels very polished in some areas (animations) and needs morework in others. I also like the fact that it supports different languages. Navigation is easy and intuitive and the general presentation of the app is a good one. Also love the fact that it shows both horoscopes for singles/couples in the same view.
Improvements The first thing I would improve are the graphics. First, the icon needs to be more polished. Maybe lighten the color a little as I think the red is a little to bloody, and there's a so a lot going on in the background with the horoscope signs. I would make it a little more subtle spacing out the signs (maybe add them in the corners). The icon is the first element a customer comes in contact in the iTunes store. Then certain elements in the graphics department need more polish. Some elements don't go very well (the grey text with the grey background - makes it hard to read especially outdoors
General review Love the fact that it uses a simple navigation scheme. It's fast and responsive and as long as the horoscope feed is interesting enough I think people will be interested in the app. A plus is all the social integration. A nice app that has a lot of potential. Just need little more polish. Great job

What I liked The app looks really good. I tested it on my 8 year nephew. He really seemed to enjoy it a lot. Colors chosen in the app are really good. They characters are very well drawn and look good. Interface is simple and easy to navigate so he did manage on his own. Even my other 5 year old was really interested in interacting with the app. So I would say it was a hit....
Improvements My opinion is that even more features could be added to this app to make it even more fully featured. I think a reward system would be great to keep them interested in the app. An example: If they get the answer right a story/movie is told chapter by chapter as they advance...
General review A very polished app with gorgeous illustrations. Easy to navigate and intuitive makes this app a must try for the young ones. Sound effects are also very well built, as I really enjoyed the soft voice the app is using. A very interactive app. Keep up the great job

What I liked The illustrations in the app are very beautiful. Everything has a polished fell and the sound effects are really high quality. Interface is nice and simple and navigation is intuitive. I like the fact that it supports multiple languages. i also like the fact that various general information about animals and such is hidden in the story in an unobtrusive way.
Improvements The navigation buttons and the menus should be bigger, as i found it difficult sometimes to access the menus or advance in the story sometimes. Maybe just do 1 big buttons that brings up a menu with the other ones. Another thing I would like to see is even more languages added to the app.
General review The characters are really well done and add some personality to the app. The animations and transitions look clean and well done.The fact that the app is very intuitive to use and it has a good story made my nephew spend a couple of hours with the app and he really seemed to enjoy it.
