It could be so much better...
I hope this doesn’t sound too critical but my mind is bursting with ideas on how this could be so much better! For $15 bucks I was expecting something pretty amazing. (I mean, what app out there costs that much?!) Instead, you get something that looks like a power point presentation (you skip to the next slide for each week’s memory work in different subjects). Yes— a power point with clip art and 1990s font and colors. The content is good and “does the trick”...yes, it aids with CC memory work but it could be so much better as far as inspiring wonder, and being beautiful as well as more interactive and user friendly. Time to update to 2019! People buy this because it has the content they need for their child to learn, but it could be SO MUCH BETTER! Also, by way of price... make your CC apps an average price for an app, and charge for “in app purchases” just like everyone else does. Or, better yet, charge CC families $5 a month for use of apps. But first, you gotta make it worth it!

Update needed immediately
This isn’t acceptable. The tutors are ready, the parents are ready, the directors are ready. But you have not proven to hold up your end. We have been doing Foundations for over a decade. You have had sufficient time to organize your company and your days well. The app is a major part of your curriculum. How do you expect your people to promote this organization if you can’t be faithful to your followers? First things first.

More errors, not updated to 5th edition
CC must not have a good editor because they are always having mistakes in everything they produce including the App. It has been one year since the fifth edition has come out and the app has not been updated to match week one. What a disappointment! I just paid $16 for an app that’s going to be wrong the entire year long
