What Users Dislike About the App
“It keeps crashing. now it’s stuck in word find view and I can’t. move anywhere else. it would be nice to be able to upload pictures from your device as well especially because it’s not that easy to find right pictures online. So, I’ve just wasted $10. should have bought “first then” app.”
“I have tried the app on a Kindle Fire Kids Edition, a Samsung S4, and a Samsung S5 and it does not work. It takes 5 minutes to load at startup and most operations in the app have a 1-2min loading scree.”
“My daughter likes the Choiceworks app for iPhone better and it has more features. It is $14.99 whereas the iPrompt was $9.99 but it works, smoothly and does not crash. I feel it was a waste of money. Sad, because apparently the government is trying to use it for schools. My recommendation is to not buy this product.”
“Basically, it doesn’t work properly on my device and is therefore utterly useless. E.g. I don’t want the schedule to say “car”, I want “school run”. All I could find was a lot of quotes about how easy it was to edit captions with no actual instructions on doing it. Finally tracked that down and it simply doesn’t work. I hope I can get a refund as I’ve had it less than 24 hours and it is mis-advertised and not fit for purpose.”
“Padded for it a day, it does not even download. I should have read all reviews wish I had my money back….”
