How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the website, only better September 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
Our kids have used starfall.com to help teach them letters and their sounds. This game is just like that website, but the touch screen aspect makes it easier for little hands than using a mouse. Highly recommend this game!

I used to use this program in my classroom and now I can get it on the Kindle for my three-year-old twins. It keeps them entertained for a long time and teaches them letters and sounds. Excellent purchase! well worth every penny!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good educational app. October 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
I thought this game would help my 2 year old son learn his abc's but it's more for learning the sound and recognition of the letters. My son loves it, I'm not sure how much he's learning quite yet but each letter has a few fun ways of learning the sound that letter makes. They are really cute, quick animations! I definitely recommend this app for maybe older toddlers for comprehending the information given but any age for letter recognition and a few laughs for the animations.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good app, doesn't work with FreeTime August 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
I like this app for the most part, it works the same as the website but my 3 year old can do it easier without having to use the mouse.

We discovered that if we use the app stand alone it works great, but as soon as one of my kids tries to open it in Kindle FreeTime (which I love) the app freezes and has to be unloaded and reloaded. My kids only use my kindle in FreeTime so this makes the app almost useless for us. So bummed, hope they can fix this soon!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great app...when it works. April 20, 2014
By Me
Verified Purchase
We love Starfall's website, so we were pretty excited about downloading the ABC app, for our Kindle Fire HD. The app did work, right after we downloaded it. After that...just a black screen. The app WILL NOT OPEN. My daughter is so disappointed (me, too). I guess we will have to use "Old Reliable" (AKA: Home Computer) if we want to play the ABC game. Hopefully, someone at Starfall will see the negative reviews, and fix the problem. I would not recommend buying this app, unless the description includes, "Updated, bugs solved!", with a fix date after April 20, 2014. Very disappointed. :(

UPDATE: We can open the app...IF we completely remove it, and redownload. It is a slight nuisance, but since my daughter loves the app, I do it. PLEASE FIX, so I do not have to continue doing so.
