    Keeps logging out when I close the app. Find it really frustrating having to put your log in details every time you want to use the app.
  • Lot of potential

    I just downloaded this app as the description looked good and what I needed as I’m trying to figure out activities to do with my little baby. Everything is a bit too technical on the first glance maybe you could simplify the language a bit and the app could suggest activities anyway based on the baby’s age instead of me manually having to look through the list which also looks a bit daunting to navigate. To the developer: Look at the baby buddy app it’s great for it’s simplicity in design. I was looking for something similar to use. Thanks for the app though, the concept behind it is great, just what new parents need. Update: Appreciate the reply. Was probably a bit tired when I saw the app and didn’t know why things were locked. Tried what you said it actually makes sense. Won’t be upgrading as can’t afford that right now. Will update the rating. Thanks much!
  • Pointless unless you upgrade

    This is billed as an activity app, and I have two criticisms- firstly the age is quite widely grouped, 0-3 months is quite general and babies change a lot in this time. Other guides can give more details about what to expect in the first few weeks, so this is disappointing. Secondly the suggested activities to do with your child are locked unless you upgrade, making the app largely pointless. Please make the purchase price clear from the start. If anyone is looking for a free app, try a different one!
  • I love this app!

    Good activities and explanation however I find it frustrating to have to log in every time, it doesn’t recognise that I’ve paid for additional options unless I go through iTunes. Asks you to add child to personalise - I’ve done this 10+ times and it doesn’t save, nor does it save the photo
  • Incorrect options for in-app purchases

    Good app but the prices for in-app purchases is incorrect. There is only the subscription options, not the one off which was why I bought it. UPDATE In the In-app purchases description on the App Store there is an option for a one off payment for 0-12 months of £7.99. This is not available in the app itself, only subscription options which work out more expensive. I looked all through the app to try to find the one off payment option with no luck.
  • Fun and informative

    Fab to learn about your babies development and really good to help them towards their milestones especially if your baby is premature.
  • Good app overall

    Good app for providing activity suggestions. However, I would say that the number of activities suggested for each day is a bit too high especially considering that babies are very easily overstimulated and newborns need to sleep and eat quite a lot as well. Based on my experience 3-4 activities per day is more than enough for 0-3 month olds. My other recommendation would be to make the milestones information available for each month on demand, so you can have something to look forward to, as well as see whether your baby is already doing something before the 'expected' time period (as many babies do not develop all skills equally - some may focus on physical progress, while others may focus on verbal and cognitive progress).
