Ok first of all,..... THIS APP IS FREAKING AMAZING!!!! You get to read books, listen to books, and even watch videos!!!! My whole class did epic during the school year and I loved it so much I just had to get it on my phone!!!! It’s so much fun, the more you read the more badges you get,some badges come with prizes like, new profile pics, frames and more! In the winter and spring they have these contests where you read as many books as you can and if you in one of the top ten you get a prize!!( this is usually done with a class so the teacher usually picks the prize) This totally makes reading way more fun so I recommend this to the parents reading this because before I HATED reading but then I striding it with my teachers recommendation and now I always have a book in my hands!!!!!! Now here are some suggestions, when I was on the app I noticed there weren’t a lot of books I usually read like, dog man, diary of a wimpy kid and books related to that. I really would enjoy epic much more if you guys at least make an effort to put some of those books in but other than that, THIS APP IS PERFECT!!!!!! 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃😉😉😉😉

Epic is a good app but I can’t say the one thing I don’t like is that some of the real long does the auto parts you can’t see the words and I don’t really like that. I also like it because I can’t listening to a book while I’m doing something else and I’m still kind a like yet so it’s nice I really like it and I don’t think there’s really anything else like it besides like Kindle and stuff but that’s for like kids and is a nice thing you can make two accounts and you get to pick what you like for each of help or it’s over two accounts and you can pick what do you like whatever you want and I really like that. And I think that epic earth not the best App but it’s good I would like to see improved and I’d like to do more interviews on it so yeah I’m actually reading a book right now and it’s called farm life oh yeah here’s another thing I don’t like it about it is it it is it doesn’t have all of the books I like like dog Mia Sammy it to you have a great selection of yesterday have a great collection of who is the new wires so I’d really like to see dog man and some more some more nonfiction book it’s more of a biography wrapping who is it who was biographies so yeah I would really like to do another review so I really like either but I think it can improve so yeah.

I'm a very busy mother of six- ranging from 16 years - 6 months!! No matter how organized, preped/prepared I think I am time is always something I find myself needing more of everyday...mostly just bc of how quickly our children grow up!!! Being a mother now myself I often "look back" on the traditions/memories that my Mother and Grandmother started with me..and I can say one of my favorite things with my parents were a bedtime story!! Some of my most fond memories were from my bedtime story times- there's no greater feeling then being all snuggled in bed with your Mommy reading from your favorite book!!!! Having so many rugrats I think it's safe to say "I've tried it all"...some work better than others of course for certain children but finding EPIC has definitely made the "process" of learning to read a lot more fun and even something my children will NOT let me forget about with all of our daily tasks!! The "badges" you collect at different stages/tasks completed is very exciting to the younger ones!! Keep up the great work!!!! And thank you for helping me keep my kids interested in reading!!!!!!

I've tried to cancel my subscription to this app & for some reason I can't. I have a son who just turned 3 a few days ago. He likes books & I thought this would be something he would be interested in. He's not. He has other learning apps that he chooses over this 1. He loves the interactive Montessori school app, which I pay $5.00/month for and I can check and see his progress there, his likes & dislikes, & change the age range or learning level. Not only can I not unsubscribe to epic, but when I look at his progress, he's only spent 27 minutes on the the app, interested in 2 books, both Elmo, however it's telling me he's reached level 2 & has earned a bunch of achievements/awards already. I don't see how that's possible. My son is advanced so he started out in the 3+ area. He likes Elmo he can read the books for free on the PBS apps. Since I can't unsubscribe in the "manage account" area in "settings ", like it tells me I can, I'm going to have to get in touch with Apple & solve my issue that way. I've never been unable to unsubscribe from an app before. This is extremely frustrating. Parents this sounds good for a classroom setting, I've read mixed reviews. My suggestion is to let the school pay for it so you don't end up in a similar situation.

I was about to start using it on my phone until I saw that subscription... I use it in my school all the time and didn’t like it because the level was way too low and so I was stuck with baby books which is one of my pet peeves. I just ended up scrolling for books for older ages, but they never had any. I just wish that you could adjust your reading level by yourself because my reading level is eighth grade but I’m reading about first. I ended up looking up the app on my phone just to see how it was to be able to choose your level, and I realized that my library teacher thought it would be an amazing idea to make all of the levels for babies so when fifth grade came along, all we had to do was look at random videos of slime and stuff. I was going to ask to use RAZ-kids, but she said ‘strictly epic’ so now I'm doomed. I know that you can use the search bar to change the level, but that never REALLY works. It just changes you to the highest level for your grade, which is about second or third in the app. Also, you have to pay for it and lots of people cant cancel the subscription. I know I'm going to get put in critical, but I honestly don’t think it matters right now. I should’ve known...
