The illustrations do not follow the poem and if you have the auto page turner on, it will turn during the poem, cutting off that stanza.

There exists an issue with the Update Notification continually showing that an update is available for iOS 6 devices. This seems to be an issue for non-iOS 6 on your devices. Please remediate this issue.

Art style is maddening to say the least

I own the Pedlar Lady… love it! Can't stand this book however. The art style used on the inside, the squiggly lines bouncing around the characters, makes the book very unpleasant (being nice here) to look at. I might enjoy the book if I were in an "altered state of mind" but since I don't do things to put me there, the book is unwatchable to me.

Disappointing

Toms Review's Review of Twasthe Night Before Christmas

Reviewed on 12/25/18 1:30 PM

This is a quirky and slightly macabre take on the classic poem. Unfortunately the app fails to deliver. The animations are choppy with seemingly accidental pauses. I dislike how they repeat themselves which detracts from the flow of the story. Although the interactive text is a nice attempt, it sadly makes it at times difficult to read. The developers of this app have a lot of work to do before charging money for it. On another note, the graphics may be uncomfortable looking to younger children.

Neat idea, but not execute well

Cool and unique presentation of the story, but the looping of the animations do not transition smoothly. I also find myself trying to turn the page quickly so the animation doesn't restart. I would suggest a revision in which the looping is removed and all of the animations are made long enough to last through the narration, and it would be five stars.

Great concept but

Needs a lot of work on the transitions and technical aspects. A better navigation system. Syncing the words with the moving image would be good. Stop the animation from an entire loop....show the scene and then have a ending image that has a little movement.....the sounds gets jarred on some pages when looping and it interrupts the story teller. Could be more interactive.

Great App

Peter Rosenthal's Review of Twasthe Night Before Christmas

This is a very nice app and the graphics are excellent and funny. There is one thing though, It says the languages supported are English, French and Spanish, and that was one of the main reasons for buying the app, however there is either no way to change the language or I have not found any. All in all a nice app. Keep on the good work

Good, but errors!

I would give 5-stars, but there are glitches. The outlines of people and items shakes and the pages don't turn sometimes when I have under auto. I will change to 5-stars once this is fixed. Kudos for allowing you to add your own voice into the story. I haven't tested this feature yet.

Not the story I love

CWF II's Review of Twasthe Night Before Christmas

Reviewed on 12/25/18 1:30 PM

Such an odd style of illustration for this charming poem and the interaction doesn't help. I'm pretty much a traditionalist when it comes to classic stories, but do like how the letters fall in and out place.

Needs bug fixing

The styling is great, and the narration is wonderful too. It's really a fantastic app, but loses two stars because the text will randomly disappear from the screen, yet returns again in the middle of a sentence, and the speed feels funky. You get to the end of a section, and it automatically starts over again. I don't know of another story time app that behaves this way, but it's strange to see Santa disappear up the chimney only to appear in the room again. I know you can enable automatic page turning, but if you do that, your kids can't look at the pictures, and can't ask questions. You are forced to get through the book in a certain amount of time... Not good. In all, it's definitely worth the price, but the developer should really get the bugs fixed BEFORE the night before Christmas.
