Great app, but I wanted to help people looking for all the rewards to unlock the Christmas tree decorations. Don't read below unless you are stuck and don't want to find them on your own.

***SPOILER***

Christmas tree - Finish the story
Woodstock - Spill paint on your hands, there's a bucket of paint behind the set with Charlie Brown, pull the paintbrush out to get paint on your finger
Charlie Brown - Find every Charlie Brown
Angel Sally - Sing a carol with the gang
Striped tree - Find every blue & green tree
Little tree - Find every little tree
Snoopy ornament - Make everyone skate
Football ornament - Knock Lucy on her feet by finishing the conversation at the Psychiatric Help scene
Tinsel - Help fix up Charlie Brown's tree, this one was tricky I did it about 5 times before it finally gave me the reward. Help the crew decorate the tree by clicking everything basically.
Snowflake ornament - Catch all 25 snowflakes
Star tree stand - Touch 5 stars
Woodstock ornament - Play "Linus & Lucy" on the piano
Snoopy on doghouse - Help Snoopy turn on all his lights in the scene where Charlie Brown is standing by the doghouse with the little tree.

I liked this app from the title page - the 45rpm record plays the theme song, complete with a touch of static, just like an actual, old school record player - but, beyond that- I have this on my kindle fire - I turned pages and listened to the story with narration, I shut that off and it spoke only a single word that I selected ( to help beginning readers) all the animation worked without a glitch- including the famous toy piano. I really like this one -

**While shooting my Free App of the Day video for my YouTube channel, I was demonstrating the page selection screen. Sprinkled through this selection are little scenes marked as "Free" - I tapped on one of them, and it took me right to the IAP store. No lock, not even the bare bones one from the main menu. And no explanation on how that particular scene I tapped on was "free" in a $5 dollar activity... just a listing of all the IAP packs. I am even more disappointed now than I was before.**

Well, I downloaded the app on a new 2014 model, 10.1" Quad-Core 4x1.24ghz, 1gig Ram 1800x600 HD (IPS) tablet running KitKat 4.4.2 with an stripped down Running Process listing - I make mention of this because it crashed out 1/3rd of the way through the story. This is not a good thing...

And as for the IAP - well, as many as you may know, I tend to be slightly more lenient on such things than others, even in a premium app, as well as not often taking account of regular pricing of a Free App showcase... but it is rather ridiculous. They only offer Christmas Tree ornaments for tree decoration. That's it. Not more stories or mini-games... trees and tree ornaments. Uh, okay. And there is a LOT of them. You'd think for the already hefty price this app normally commands, any additional IAP would be some serious content. Then add in the fact this is indeed a primary target of young children and children with a mere slide-lock as the "Store" safety feature. Good Grief!

So aside from the crashing on a powerful tablet and the head-hanging IAP, the rest of the permissions and code are clean. You can take pictures from with the app, thus that Camera permission, and the code is clean from any kind of analytics.

In-App-Purchasing for an application based on the work of the late Charles M Schultz. That's just rude. Making additional money off of something which isn't rightfully yours.

Robert Reese already spoke my opinion.

[UPDATE: It seems someone didn't like my review, where it was the 4th most popular review. Amazon apparently removed it.]

"Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?!" Only Charlie Brown can turn the magic of Christmas into a problem. And only the developer can turn a Christmas classic into a Grinch story.

Charles Schulz would be horrified to see how he's life's work has been corrupted.

IN-APP PURCHASING in anything designed for young children is *unacceptable* in any form. This app is already very expensive in comparison to other Android applications, and it's been around for a few years. Do you want to see the faces of those responsible? Simply take a look at the developer's "about us" page. Such innocent-looking people. Looks can be deceptive, just like this app.

Shame on you, Loud Crow Interactive, for this abominable behavior!

I bought this app for my kindle fire and had no problems with it. It was very interactive, fun and I felt as if I was watching the TV show with the added bonus of being a part of it. It is highly enjoyable and recommended.
