Fun but needs serious improvements
My kids adore the idea of their own email accounts, and I love it that they are sending not just text but adorable drawings. I really do love the program, and it they made it much bigger and better would consider paying for it, a small amount, BUT, as it is now, there are too many serious shortcomings with the program... What I like: the camera function, I like the sound effects, I enjoy the way it allows you to draw then the tools pop up right away when you want them. I like how many colors you get in the marker and pencils. I enjoy the style of it, the cute characters and backgrounds. What I do not like: I have two kids, but can only have one kid account. Not good at all. Having to input my parent code every time we want to do just about anything is beyond annoying, and so far i can not figure out how to change that parent code, so once they know it its worthless. The graphics are quickly becoming boring, there are only so many email with a skating snowman or a mermaid you can draw, so I would like a whole lot more backgrounds, characters and stamps. There needs to be an undo button so when you accidentally hit something you can undo it. I want the marker to actually draw a crisp line, not like a worn out old marker that I would want to throw away if I had it in my house. Want more fonts, maybe just a few since it is for young kids.

Will not work
"Can't register your account at this time." This after three tries. Good work fellas, but you graphics are cute!

Add additional children option!
My son loves this app and he is communicating daily with grandparents so kudos for this!!! My problem is that I cannot add his twin sister and as you can guess, this is a REAL problem! Please add the ability for multiple children. Thanks!

As others mentioned, slowness and confusion
The idea is definitely what got me to download it in the first place, but the execution of this app does not come close to fitting the obvious need for some sort of secure email/message system for children. The 'app' is just a border on a browser window that links to an extremely slow online system. I also could not get the setup to the point of letting my child send anything; I only got through the parent registration and inputting my child's name. It kept bringing me back to the parent dashboard with no way of getting to the child's interface.

Was excited, but...
I was very excited to give this a try, but I have two kids. I don't see any way to add a second child. How can I let one kid use it and not the other? Please add functionality to add additional kids, or if it's already there, it's too hard to find. I'd also like to be able to customize an invite, especially if I want to invite a friend's kids to correspond with my kids. I can invite the adult, but I have no way of seeing what the invite says or adding a note to say, "This is a way our kids can email each other." The tools for kids to compose messages are a lot of fun and easy to use. So far it's good, but definitely not great.

Good idea but...
We were excited to try this but had great difficulty trying to set this up on multiple ipads so our kids could email Grandma. Between email difficulties & confusion over how to set it up we couldnt get it to work & gave up.
