Not for IOS 7.1.2
I don't know what's up with this app. When you tap to start, it opens in landscape mode- but only in the left half of the screen. The right side is completely black. (I'm assuming it runs in landscape mode- it wouldn't flip over to portrait). After loading the beginning, it then shows you 3 options- the first left one is unlocked, the other two-... Read Morelocked. I tried to tap on the unlocked one, and it did nothing. Tried tapping on ALL of them an nothing happened. After restarting ipod, hooking up to wifi, keeping wifi shut off, etc, etc, I ran out of options. All I could do at that point was delete it. It looked like a cute app, but it doesn't seem to run on IOS 7.1.2 (5th gen iPod touch).

I Like This App a Lot!
I am a kindergarten teacher, and I will use this app early in the school year. It would also be good for preschoolers. Cool soundtrack, a great little fox guide who is not too intrusive, and interesting graphics will keep kids engaged. I especially like that kids will need to mentally rotate shapes that are presented in different positions and sizes in order to solve the puzzles. ... Read MoreThe add on pack was reasonably priced at $2.99, and there were no ads even in the free version. High quality, Highlights!

My 2 yo loves it but one fix is needed
My son loves the games. But the home key is not child protected at all. Because my son has little hands he keeps hitting the home key in the upper right cornet by mistake. Make it so you have to hold it or tap twice to go home!!

Nice but...
I liked the app but for 2.99 they don't offer much. There are only 3 levels, if I could get a refund I would - My son wasn't interested in repeating the same 3 short boards over and over .
