Great idea bad GUI
I love the idea but the parental interface is goofy. You cannot change the avatar after initial entry. You are unable to delete a child. I have to log in to let my child use the app. Getting back to my dash is always annoying. The constant Facebook "post on your behalf" question is dumb when logging back in. Needs work. I'll try again in a few months.

Getting better
The ability to have multiple child accounts is great. The navigation is still cumbersome, and I can't seem to change the avatar for a contact once it's created (not even by deleting and re-adding -- it remembers the avatar associated with the email address). So… getting better, but still needs improvement especially in the area of adding/editing contacts, and in the child's email composition area (should show which child account is active and be able to get back to home screen without pulling up the inbox).

A great and safe app
I live 2 hours away from my nephew who is 6. We email everyday and its soo much fun to draw and send pics . A great concept and great for relatives who live far away to keep in touch in a fun way.

Need Improvement
Love the concept, but it needs work. Adding/editing contacts is very difficult.

My daughter loves this application!
She just turned 4 and has been using it for a few weeks. She now loves to draw pictures and broadcast them to all her contacts daily. She adds nonsense text and sometimes practices her spelling. Some adults have found it boring to reply with only stock emails, but her cool aunts have downloaded the application and send fancy pictures back. She checks her email every day. Only downside is that she would love to be able to attach photos from her photo library to emails and as of now that is not possible. Also, occasionally we lose an email when the internet connection is not established at the time it is sent or get doubles sent to everyone. Can't wait to see what is added next...

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.
