Update is terrible!!!!!!
The first version of this app was great! My parents loved this app to keep in touch with my kids since they a good distance away. However, with this new version, my son must first initiate an email before they can send one. It only allows for a reply since they've greatly reduced they web version capabilities. I guess my parents should be forced to buy an iPad if they want the full experience of the app. In addition to that horrible change, the animated gifs that were available to send seem to be no longer available. My oldest son and my niece especially loved that. Oh, well. I can totally see why they would remove such a kid friendly feature for a geared-toward-kids app (<-----that statement was heavy on the sarcasm for those who have trouble reading it). On top of all of those terrible updates which, by the way I've yet to see any changes that improved the children's user experience on the kid side of the app, they've removed the option for the parent of the child to change photos of those whom you're emailing. Why would this matter? If my son likes a particular photo that we have of my mother, for instance, I would have to email or SMS her the photo, in order for it be uploaded. This is an app for children and I haven't seen one change to this app that is neither relevant nor kid friendly!!!! Please, fire the bonehead who came up with or signed off on these changes because its obvious by the current ratings that they have no children or have ever been around them for an extended period of time. I'm seriously considering boycotting this app and setting up another form of communication for my kids to contact their friends and relatives until this gets fixed. Hopefully, the makers of this app will read these reviews and correct their mistakes instead of listening to the 20 something year old with the "bright ideas" (and whom is also without kids of their own) in the Maily "improvement" brainstorming sessions!

What happened to images?
I liked the old version better. I can't find a way to change the images that go with the people my daughter is trying to send emails to. I hope this is fixed.

Bring back full-features to parents!
My kids and I enjoyed sending pictures back and forth--now I have to pretend to be a child to get this functionality. Disappointing update. (And I fully agree with the reviewer who pointed out that many children use older iPads that can't run iOS 6.)

My three children and I love keeping in touch with my nieces with maily. I was hoping the new version would have added graphics because while we've all gotten very creative with the old ones, it would be nice to have some more fun to choose from. When I updated, there are no new graphics and what's a bummer for me is that in parent mode, you can now only send text and a photo. I can no longer create fun little scenes for my nieces. I liked the old version better and would have given it 4 stars.
