  • A dignified approach

    By Juuuuust 1 thing
    I remember 2 years ago i wrote a review about codespark. I was complaining about the subscription. I was 8 and a half. I am now 10 and will try at a much more dignified approach. I will start of with the fact that there are parents complaining about this subscription. But there are equally as many that are not mad about it. you can improve by -removing the subscription and making the app 7.99 in general for people who haven't downloaded this app yet (i have downloaded it) -just do nothing I'm not forcing you to remove the subscription but i am saying to simply reduce the price to $0.99-$2,99 a month (but i want you to remove the subcription) It's your choice to remove it and i hope you do. -Nathan eugenio-alba age 10

    I wouldn’t recommend to buy this game. It tells you to buy a subscription (which drives me nuts!) AND it won’t leave you any choice but to buy it. If you spend your money and time on this DELETE IT! Or else you will become poor and cannot provide yourself and your family. I’d give a 0 star because I cant tolerate it. Only if there was a way…
  • Fun for Kindergarteners

    Lots of options out there but as a teacher and parent I haven’t found anything that keeps kids attention while actually building skills like the Foos. Great software
