I rarely write rants because I don’t care to spread negativity. I always try to be as honest as possible in a review but I would never seek to bash a brand or company, it’s just not my style. So, when I do write a rant or negative review it is because they have REALLY annoyed me!
My daughter uses my iPhone more than I do. From the time I got it, the only apps I really had were flash cards, and games for her. I generally use the free ones and have NEVER had a problem with any of them. A few months ago I splurged and spent $2.99 on Dora Saves The Crystal Kingdom for Alexis because she is a Dora fanatic.She enjoyed the game, but it was kinda boring because it was a simple coloring app with a rainbow race.
Jump to last week we see the commercial for the new app Dora’s Skywriting ABC’s, and she just has to have it. We saw the commercial 1564235463 times before I finally decided to download it. After all, it was only $1.99 so I figured why not.
THIS, IS WHY NOT:
Do you see those HUGE buttons that have all of their favorite characters on them?
This is what they do when you touch them:
Why Nickelodeon? Why are you trying to take my 3 year old to the App store? I don’t appreciate this at all! I would understand if this was a FREE app, but I paid for it so I expect it to be free of ads! Even if it was free this kind of marketing should be unacceptable because I don’t think they should be able to send young children shopping in the app store. PERIOD.
I know you have to enter your password to actually buy something but from what I have seen if you enter your password and download this app, and your child immediately goes to the app store through this game you do NOT have to login again to purchase!!!!
