    I was reading Book 5 of this today and I saw on the back, “Download now” and it’s crap. I literally has the same facts as book 5 but way less, I can get these at my local or school library for free! By the way, you’re not getting my money.

    I got this app so I can laugh and have fun but no it gives you 2 facts and asks you for your money 💰 I don't think so. And the grownup questions a 2 year old can solve that problem. Sorry to those that say it is good and an like to pay money for crap 💩 but they didn't fool me for a second.

    Spent money on this and cannot download what I bought. Reinstalled app no luck. Tried different device still no luck. Extremely disappointed child and parent. Get your act together guys. And send me a refund for failing to provide what was purchased. Again 1 star is generous but apple in they wisdom will not allow 0 stars.

    This app is awesome because I learn new facts and I have to read any book it can be an app a real book but I don’t like getting off my phone so it’s perfect because I can read on here.👍

    You should never make just ONE free pack! This is the most disappointing game I ever got. I personally think the books are way way way better then this app! And we do you have the “adults only” thing, I mean the questions said like the easy ones like one times seven or eight! I really hope you make the people with this app happy and make at least eight free packs, otherwise this app is mostly useless except for the only eight free facts some of us like to have fun. I’m sorry about this rate but this app deserves it.
