Pros and cons of Elmo Loves ABCs app for iPhone and iPad

Elmo Loves ABCs app good for

This new version respond how it should, my kids just LOVE it.
Perfect app for my 2 year old. I think the sensitivity is a little too high. Before the upgrade it was too hard but now when in one activity, a random touch on the screen pops you into another activity. Other then that its excellent and my 2yr old begs to play "elmo"
This app has a depth of entertainment that keeps my 2 year old coming back for more.
I own a home daycare and my kids from 11 months and up love this app. The thing I love for the older kids is that they have to trace the letter to unlock the videos, coloring and fun hidden behind every letter, which is great practice. Not to mention Elmo, who doesnt love Elmo?!
I purchased this app for granddaughter, (she is 20 months old) and she loves this game. The problem is when you pick from the 3 things at bottom of screen it does not always play the proper video.
We have 4 children ranging from 1-6 years old and this app is one of their absolute favorites! The videos are great and the games are fun. There is so much content in this app that the fun and learning goes on and on! Thanks for a fantastic app!

Some bad moments

My little girl loves this...... When it works..... It does not recognize any touch on anything unless you hold your finger over it for a second or two and have you ever tried to teach a three year old to do that, good luck and most of the videos for the letters dont have any sound. With some bug fixes this could be perfect
This is a very good concept, but I cant help feeling that developers didnt actually test on real children. My son loves this app, but he gets frustrated very fast -- the videos take a long time to load, and pressing the same video button while the video is loading will try to load it again, so it takes even longer as a result. Elmo talks for too long after the activity has loaded, but the activity itself cant yet be played. Hopefully future versions will fix these issues so kids can fully enjoy this app.
My son loved this app, but since the latest update, it crashes right after he picks a letter; were unable to use the app now. Please fix it soon, its a great app!
I so want to give this app the 5 stars I would have before the last update, early Dec 2013. This is a really great and fun learning app for children. It is used quite frequently in our home and one of our 5 year olds favourites. With the new update, it does not seem to be as picky that the tracing is perfect, but unfortunately the tracing on the lower case letters does not always register, there is a gap that does not fill in on most letters. This makes it frustrating for kids as they cannot move on to the next part. I hope Sesame Street is able to correct this soon! Otherwise a great app, wish they had more a Than just ABCs and 123s!
At one point this was my sons favourite app. One update later its nearly impossible to trace most of the lower case letters. Do not purchase this app until they update
Audio does not work properly so letters are not pronounced. Tracing is still not working as it did before. As many reviews have said the updates since 2014 Dec have ruined this great app. Dont download till they fix this.
