This app is useful and fun and I love the look of it! I’ve used many of the activities with my baby and they’re great. I hate to complain about a free app but I do wish that it would stop logging me out every couple of days! It’s not a big deal to type in my email and password again but it’s getting kind of annoying.
Absolutely love this app! I had no experience with children until I had my daughter. During this quarantine period It’s been really hard for me to figure out how to teach her things. And then I’ve been finding that parenting books and online resources are not as helpful as I had hoped. But I found the library, although closed, has a webpage that recommended this app. And now I know why, it’s amazing! These are easy fun ways to fit education into every day activities. At first going through the discovery activities seemed overwhelming and made me feel even worse. Because I wasn’t already doing these things and she’s already three months old. But now that I’ve been going through them and fitting them into our every day routine I’m feeling them a lot more comfortable and confident as a mom. I am now recommending this to my fellow mother friends. Thank you for making this app!
Vroom app has great potential to assist parents of 0-5 children to access age-appropriate ways to interact with their children. As a SLP, using an app like vroom could be an important tool to provide parent education and support However, using a child’s birth month and year, is not helpful for parents of children with developmental delays. By providing additional categories including developmental age of child and specific areas of development such as language and motor skills, this could be an awesome app families. I gave this app only 2 stars because I entered a 3 month old child and received activities for a 3 year old child. Would be very confusing for parents not aware of developmental norms.
As another reviewer said, it keeps logging out. To make it worse, sometimes when I log in it doesn’t remember me and I have to enter my child’s info again, then I end up getting multiple push notifications for the same thing. Want to love it, but please fix the bugs!
Can’t add child. Even tried with a new phone and new account.
We had our second child earlier this year and I wanted to add him to the app but couldn’t: after entering his DOB and name, nothing happens. Oh well, I just looked for some activities from our first child’s list. But then I recommended the app to a neighbor and guess what, they can’t even add their first child! So the app is simply not working and therefore useless for them.
This app would be 100% better if it didn’t keep requiring me to login 1 out of every 3 times I open it. It’s not like you should even need a login for this app...it doesn’t really have personal information.
I love the app, but unfortunately it’s got bugs that make logging in really difficult. It’s too bad because the brain-building tips are so good. 5 stars for content, 1 star for access, so 3 stars overall.
I'm a speech language pathologist and got this app to see if it would be worth recommending to the parents of my students. The activities are simple and usually can be completed during every day activities, which is the best way to learn. The only thing I would like to do is be able to go back to a previous day's vroom and mark it complete. Often we do them, but I'm not obsessed with checking it off right away and forget. The point of the app is to interact, but marking a vroom as complete is satisfying. Although, getting a new badge every day so far for completing them is annoying because of the time it stays on the screen. Regardless, I will definitely be recommending this to my parents this school year.
I’d love to be able to see what’s going on in here but I DO NOT have time to log in. It’s not a bank app or anything. It’s completely unnecessary to have to log in every single time. App’s not getting used because of this
I love this app! The activities are fun and unique. But I'm not getting the notifications to look at the Daily Vroom. I have the notification turned on within the app and on the settings on my phone but I'm still not getting them. So I'm missing some activities if I don't remember to look at the app that day so I wish there was a way to look at the previous days activities; the ones you might have missed. The only notifications I get are when I set a reminder to do the Daily Vroom. But otherwise, I like the app content.
I take my daughter to our local library weekly, for story time. As I was there I came across a flyer advertising the app. At first I didn't think much of it but once you set it up it's so educational for parents and most of all your little ones! You are able to personalize it which I love because it's personal to your child's growth. You get to choose from tons of categories of creative fun to bond and teach your child things appropriate to his or hers age. At the same time it shows you the "Brainy Background" why and how it will improve and benefit them! It's a genius concept. Perfect for all parents especially first timers :)
As a busy working mom, this is a great option for keeping the kids occupied in a productive way! I love that you get explanations of how each activity helps brain development. Only downside for me is that I wish it had more for kids a little older, as I have a 7-yr old who can still benefit from brain-developing activities. For little ones though, this app is ideal!
My mom is a parent educator, so most of these activities aren't new to me. BUT, what I love about this app is that it reminds me to do these activities with my little ones! I have a three year old and one year old twins, and so life can be pretty chaotic. This app has been so helpful in reminding me to do many of the activities that I had forgotten about or just didn't think to do with my kiddos because life gets so hectic at times.
I really enjoy this app, I'm a first time mom and I'm also in my thirties and let me tell you I'm learning a lot as I go! With this app I feel like I'm doing so much for my baby, I can clearly see how she is growing physically and mentally. You really can't put a price on how amazing it makes you feel as a parent to be able to participate in your child's development and this app gives you the ability to do so. So enjoy! I know I have!
I wish this app had been available when my kids were small. Great ideas along with understanding why it's important. Yes, start talking and singing to your newborn! And so many ideas about how to fit those moments into a busy day. Thanks for making this available at no cost to all parents. Looking forward to many languages other than English too.
This is such an easy way to find new ways to talk and interact with your child. The app is easy to use. I do wish there was a way to go back to a previous day's activity bc I'm not always able to complete that activity that day depending on the time I look at the activity.
I love this app! Just a couple notes: I have notifications turned on in the settings of the app and have allowed vroom notifications in my phone settings, but I'm still not getting notifications. Also, please make it possible to mark yesterday's vroom complete.
I love hanging out with my baby, if I ever have time that I don't know what to do to entertain us, this app has fun ideas. *I'm taking 1 star off because I can't get the app to push notifications. I have to go look for the daily activity. It's not a big deal, but I usually don't want to be on my phone if we're playing.
I discovered the Vroom app through my non-profit work, but couldn't wait to share it with my daughter and her five-month-old son. Her background in neuroscience makes her a tough sell, but she loves it! I love the concept, and it is so accessible. Thanks for creating this wonderful tool for parents (and grandparents and caregivers).
Sometimes my child isn't interested when I want to do these but the ideas stick in my head and I've noticed other opportunities to use them later. Sometimes I feel a little silly but she loves it when mommy plays (builds her brain)!
I love this app. I love all the different activities they have for my two girls. Sometimes you just need help coming up with simple games that help with your child's develop and this app does it. I really like that the activities are stuff that I can incorporate into what we do already.
I've always known that babies need stimulation with things that they can hear, touch, and of course put in their mouth. This app is perfectly catered to that! Love it! We are sometimes at a loss (being new parents and all) with what/how to build our little one's brain.
Great for giving parents ideas and keeping the kids engaged
I really like this app. Often when I need to think of ways to engage kids in a light activity I would consult this app. I love reading about why certain activities are beneficial for my children's development.
The app works great for me. I like the daily reminders of easy activities to do with my kids and the explanation of how it benefits them. I do wish the app would let you go back to previous day and mark that you did it in case you forgot that day
This app is so great. It is easy to use and I love how it sends you daily reminders. No parent has all of the answers or does everything perfectly. Vroom is one small thing you can do to help you on the crazy journey called parenthood. Thank you for the much needed support!
I just got this app and had no problems signing in as others have mentioned in their reviews. I'm always looking for new ways to interact with and entertain my little one and this app has been fun for both of us!
These Vroom activities are wonderful ways to relate to your grandkids. Short and sweet, and they make adults think just as much as the little ones. The Vroom apps are the perfect reason to get Grampa and Gramma to make the jump from their 10 yr old flip phones!
I downloaded the app because it was highly recommended to me. Upon trying to create an account it said the email was in use, but when I went to forgot password (though I had never used this app before), it came up with an error. Tried Facebook; another error. A different email; another error. I would really like to use this app if this can be fixed!!
It's a fantastic tool. As I learn key developmental stages of childhood; I teach my son. I love it because I find new ways to interact with my son, by following others' tips. I am sharing priceless moments with him, and learning together. I am grateful for this genius and generous app.
Fun, interesting daily activities to do with your child. I appreciate that there is science behind each day's activity and that you don't have to be a teacher or have a degree in child development to have an impact on your child's development.
My only suggestion is to have an option to factor in developmental delays. My son has high functioning ASD so the task where not designed for him. I lowered down the age by a year so I will see if it is any better
