My son loves this game and now finishes it quickly. I really want to buy the full version but the purchase screen freezes. Is anyone else having this problem?

Nice little app, but VERY limited even to those who buy a Highlights Magazine subscription!
My preschooler loves the first level of this game / app and I appreciate that it isn’t smothered with ads like so many other apps / games. However, the other 3 levels of the app are “locked” and you have to pay for them. It should all of the age appropriate apps for the same age group (i.e. preschoolers, school age, etc) should be included with the magazine subscription. We... Read Morepay a good $30+ a year for our child to get a monthly magazine that doesn’t include all that much in the way of stories (max. 3, one of which is mostly in Spanish which is annoying so we can really only use 2). Since we pay so much for a magazine for our child, it is not unreasonable to expect to get a code included with the subscription that allows us to get the apps included in our magazine subscription. My son is very frustrated that when he goes to play the next level, it throws up a math problem so that he can’t buy the next level. I’m not shelling out MORE and MORE money to this company just so he can play the additional levels. $30+/yr for a kids magazine is plenty (I’m positive that it doesn’t cost them nearly $30 to produce and send them, especially considering periodicals-priced postage and the minimal content in the way of stories, etc). The bottom line is this - for that kind of cash when you’re already buying the magazines, the apps should be included. (Obviously, if you aren’t buying the magazines, I can 100% understand that the higher levels have a purchase requirement, but not if you already pay for a subscription). Highlights has always been a child focused company and if they are going to make apps and advertise them in the magazines, they should at the very least include them in the subscription price. I’m very disappointed in Highlights as a company for doing this sort of thing - it’s not the type of behavior that I would expect from them.
