    BabySparks is great! No new parent needs to pressure themselves too much because most of these activities simulate normal day-to-day interaction and play that most great parents do with their baby. However, I’m one of those people who will get stuck in a rut and end up doing the same 5 activities with baby over and over every day. This app provides a wide range of activities to vary your playtime. I love that the activity descriptions are clear, the link to the various developmental milestones is described right there in the activity and every activity has an accompanying video. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because of a very slight misstep in the UI. In the daily activities, you have to click into each activity to check it off, even if it’s one that you have done before and don’t need the description or video. When you’re playing with baby, the less distracted the better. I want to be able to one-touch check-off the activities. It is also annoying (for the same reason) that the first time you look at an activity for the day it stops you on your way back to the main list to ask how the activity was. I like to look at the daily activities first thing in the morning and get an idea of what we’re going to try that day and again would be nice not to be slowed down. Slightly more thought on how much button pushing is required in this app would make it a 5-star treat for every new parent!

    I recommend upgrading. Spend the money. This app has helped a lot with our son who was born two months early. It gave us great ideas on what to work with him on.

    I bought this app the other day for a yearly fee of 23.99 and nothing has unlocked for activities. I still only have access to the free activities so I’m not sure what the purpose of buying it was and I’d like my money back.
  • Don’t spend any money on this app!

    Bought a Lifetime Package but it was never activated on their side. Even tried contacting their support email but they stopped responding after some initial follow ups. Very unprofessional support team.
  • Needs to be more like a fitness app

    The content is good, but it needs more. How many reps of each activity or for how long? How many times a day are we supposed to do the activities - should any be repeated? Are they supposed to be all at once in a row, or spaced out through the day? For the cost there should be more included.
  • Excelente guía para padres primerizos

    This app only gets you so far without paying. I would watch ads rather than pay $4/month. Just do the research online yourself for free.
  • Do not prepay for access

    This program was helpful so I had signed up for a subscription. At the end of the year, I looked and there was no option to cancel it. While investigating how to cancel, I got charged another year. I emailed the company and they canceled it for me, but apparently can’t refund the charge. Buyer be wary. Pay for the month to month if you’re going to use at all.
