The Wonder Weeks for Negative User Reviews

First time userI don’t understand it unfortunately.Version: 10.6.9

Just a bit silly.My friend recommended this app, but I have to say it was fairly useless. My baby never showed any of the signs around the automatically generated ‘leap’ dates. And some of them were just laughable - ‘understands what an airplane is’ (8 months). ‘Washes dishes’ (12 months). Sometimes I just open it for a giggle. The information your local health authority publishes is probably more useful (and free). Edit: I didn’t say anything about ‘random googling’, I referenced evidence based material that is published by health authorities. The stock developer response is telling. What is misleading is telling new parents that they need to pay for an app to provide good parenting..Version: 11.0.0

Based on unproven science from controversial academic. Don’t buy.Personally I didn’t find that my baby’s development followed the leaps described in the app. It’s interesting to tick off the milestones such as when your baby makes consonant sounds etc but there is no scientific basis for the claims that all babies go through these leaps at the same time. Extract from a 2018 guardian article by Oliver Burkeman: The Wonder Weeks, a popular book by the Dutch husband-and-wife child development experts Frans Plooij and Hetty van de Rijt, insists upon the existence of 10 predictable “magic leaps forward” in your baby’s neurological development, heralded in each case by bouts of fussiness, raising the prospect that you might be able to tick them off like milestones in a home-renovation project. For example: at 46 weeks old, the authors declare, you can expect your baby to start to understand sequences, such as the steps involved in fitting one object into another. (Typically for the genre, The Wonder Weeks tries to reassure readers these stages will unfold naturally, while strongly hinting there are specific things parents must do to make them go well.) But it’s not wholly astonishing to learn, from Dutch press reports, that when one of Plooij’s PhD students sought experimental evidence for these leaps, she found none, and Plooij tried to block the publication of her results, triggering a controversy that saw him dismissed from his university post..Version: 10.3

Not helpfulHeard a lot of people talking about the wonder weeks and was even recommended it by my midwife, so I bought it to help better understand my babies development. Unfortunately my baby just didn’t follow the leaps at all! I’m guessing because every baby is different some won’t follow the leaps but I just don’t think it’s worth the money at all. It’s hard to navigate and understand what’s happening, the signals are very vague and apply to every leap. I don’t know why there is charge for this app?? There isn’t any advice offered on how to cope with different milestones etc It was interesting to understand what she could be learning but since my baby didn’t follow to leaps it didn’t apply to us. Hopefully it works for other people..Version: 10.4

Old fashioned interface and hard to useHeard quite a bit about this app from my fellow NCT Mums and downloaded it. Had to double check it was the correct app because even the screen grabs of it in the App Store show it to look really dated and old fashioned in terms of design. I purchased it nevertheless and have to say that unfortunately I am not impressed. It’s really difficult to navigate and for something that should be really simple and intuitive (ie a calendar feature that then links through to information about what your baby should be experiencing at that time plus data on how long it is til the next leap) it just didn’t deliver on this. Also the content itself is not written very well (whose decision was it to write it in the baby’s first person rather than he/she’ ?! It’s not as if the baby would be reading this!) The calendar feature isn’t clickable and doesn’t tell you what the icons mean or click through to the corresponding info page. I can’t really see how this app is very useful to be honest and in an age with some many brilliantly designed and well-tested apps I think this needs a completely redesign and a lot of user feedback taken into consideration. Take heed app designers......Version: 9.1

Not real science!!I recommend reading the Wiki about the Wonder Weeks before purchasing. I had not, used the app with our son for a few months. I was surprised by how little correlation there seemed to be between what the app said we should be experiencing with him and what was happening in real life. Once seeing the Wiki page, this made sense since it turns out the ‘science’ behind this is bogus. The researcher’s findings were not able to be replicated by future researchers and, to make matters even better, the researcher apparently attempted to stop other scientists from publishing their actually legit findings, because they contradicted his. And it sounds like he was a womanizer so three strikes. Unfortunately, anyone who finds correlation between the app or book and their baby is working off of a placebo effect. You read it and then you see it because the app says it’s happening. It’s unfortunate because it may define how some parents approach their babies needs, all of which is based off of nothing..Version: 8.0.2

Great content, crappy appThe content itself is very helpful and generally spot on (a week or so off on either side of the leaps which is normal since each baby is different). The app itself, however, it needs some work. The sleeping schedule has ongoing issues which have been raised with their impeccable customer service. A new version was coming out that was meant to fix the initial glitch, and it did fix it but only for a few weeks. It now has issues again where it does not record anything you put in unless you put it in 3+ times. I do not use the other features and so I am unsure if this is an issue throughout the app, although it can be a little frustrating not being able to use the main features that come with the app. Hopefully the developers can kindly get it together and resolve this ongoing issue, as some parents do rely on these paid features..Version: 10.7.1

Hate the new updateI absolutely loved this app so it is hard to rate because I hate it now. I recommend to everyone. It was perfect! I liked how it told me what things my baby might be going through and why he was going through it as well as the new things your baby might be doing now. Now it is more of a diary where you tell the app what is going on. It still gives tips on activities you can do to help with the new development but overall we hate the new update. Luckily we have an iPad where the update didn’t happen and we use that to see what’s going on. Luckily he only has a few leaps left. I would Not recommend this new updated version. Especially having to pay for the app. If you want a journal that documents when your baby cries more often then this is for you..Version: 10.3

Basically astrologyI got this app because someone said it was science based. It’s not. It doesn’t have any references to science in it. The first leap didn’t fit my baby at all, and the second leap only fit my baby for a couple of things on the list, which was probably just a coincidence. The app’s texts explaining the leaps are like long rants which are difficult to apply to actual behaviors that my baby has. And, once again, there’s no scientific evidence of any of it. The app also has some pop ups which are annoying to click away when exploring the app. I’m sorry I paid for this app. It’s basically astrology, trying to explain all babies based on due dates. Babies don’t follow the calendar. The worst thing is that the app gives a false sense of “light at the end of the tunnel” and directs attention away from real issues that a baby has..Version: 10.5.4

I’m not impressedI wanted ideas and suggestions of activities or things I could do during these “leaps” to help stimulate my baby. I could have downloaded a milestone checklist for free from my government health website. This feels like a waste of money to me..Version: 10.5.6

Not worth the HypeThe timing is always off and doesn’t tell you how to cope with the Leap.Version: 10.5.3

Not syncing with datesThe app isn’t syncing with my calendar so it keeps telling my a leap is 8 days away even though it’s already been. I have tried to use the help feature on the app and it says the email can’t be sent so I can’t receive support to fix the problem. Frustrating seeing as I’ve paid for the app!.Version: 10.6.7

You don’t need thisI had this app recommended by multiple people when I had my baby, and whilst it was mildly interesting it never really lined up with his development, which I’m sure could be anxiety inducing for some people given that it bills itself on being so heavily researched and scientific. I actually have no issue with the basic premise of the app - babies regress, they get moody and change all the time, and it is impermanent and above all else NORMAL. But frankly you don’t need an app to tell you that..Version: 10.7.1

Second Time Dad DissapointedThis app is supposedly anchored in groundbreaking research. I haven’t read the book, but if the app is indeed designed to go “hand in hand” with the book then it really needs to say that more up front. In fact, it’s hard for me to understand why you would need an app if you had the book. The app is practically incomprehensible as it is. The checklists are condescending. Parts of the app say “leaps can occur plus or minus two weeks from what the calendar shows”. Then when you’re two weeks out and checking all the boxes the app condescends to say “your baby isn’t experiencing everything you just checked off”. Oh freaking really? Seems like a fancy digital way to get railroaded into some educational baby reading, like a 4th trimester version of all the cute little “here’s what your baby looks like now!” notifications you get in the pregnancy trackers. You finally reach the first leap, weeks after your baby is fussier, clingier, more alert, needing to be held, all the symptoms, and find out “hey, your baby is different now” in these two ways with some 30 second videos? Honestly it’s a waste of my time. I’d rather read a blog post each leap and be done with it..Version: 10.4

ImportantsWould like videos on the weeks suggested activities, not only written. Or other videos relating to this leap..Version: 10.6.9

Not Worth $7Not worth $7. Any of this info can be found for free with a simple google search. All baby’s reach milestones at different ages, this app is set up in a way that assumes all baby’s reach milestones at the same time, predicting certain achievements down to the day. Not realistic lol. Enjoy your baby’s growth and changes organically, you don’t need this app..Version: 10.7.1

New version is terribleI loved the old version but since the update it’s horrible. There’s less information, less to read and everything is presented in checklist that makes you think your child is behind every time. A child is not supposed to clap hands at 6 months and it only make pressure/stress on the parent. Please put the old version and information back!.Version: 10.4

Nothing you can't read on googleI wouldn't bother buying this, doesn't have much info and its all pretty generic stuff..Version: 3.0.2

Waste of time & moneyThis app blows - don’t bother buying it! The « leaps » don’t really make any sense, and the app keeps contradicting itself about when the leap actually is. My baby at 15 weeks is starting leap 4, but the app also tells me there’s 25 days left in the leap, elsewhere says she’ll start the leap in 46 days, but also says that leap 4 starts at week 19.... what?!? Not user friendly. No explanations about how to use. For example, the calendar has little clouds over some weeks - I would love to know what that’s supposed to mean, but it isn’t explained anywhere. I literally can’t use this app (and I have a Masters degree 🤣). Completely useless!.Version: 9.1

Lost all my old in-app purchases from 2018…I agree with some of the reviews that mention old in-app purchases of the chapters have been lost due to newer ‘streamlined’ version removing them as a resource. It is sneaky of the developer to do this as I too purchased all the chapters via in-app purchasing back in 2018 when I had my first child and now for my second child I don’t have access to any of the previously purchased content. Surely Apple’s app store should investigate this it doesn’t seem right to remove something you have paid for and feels like a scam..Version: 10.5.2

Wonderweeks should be called WondermonthsThe information is wonderful and I’ve found it really interesting in predicting difficult periods with my 3 month old. However, I purchased the app a month ago and the information hasn’t changed. I understand that the leaps last some time but I really think the app would benefit from daily insights. I have another app which I didn’t pay for that offers useful tips tailored to your pregnancy and parenting styles. I find it disappointing that a paid-for app doesn’t offer a little more..Version: 7.3.2

Wonder weeksUpon purchasing this app recommended by a friend, I thought brilliant, I can track their developments (I say their because I have twins!, although I have to take the Info based on twin1 as there is no option for twins). I find the info on the leaps and developments worth a read but there is an awful lot of it to take in, also the app is claiming my babies should be doing things or showing signs of doing things that they aren’t. When it comes to predicting difficult or calm times I find it highly inaccurate! Not sure it’s worth the price I paid.Version: 8.0.1

Really dislike the appI dislike this app. I know some parents might like it but I don’t. I literally used it for less than 15 minutes and realized it wasn’t for me. I haven’t touched it since. I requested a refund and they aren’t giving it to me. You’d think it would be easier to get a refund from them but it’s not. They don’t even respond to my emails..Version: 11.0.0

Keeps crashingEvery time I go to open the app it keeps crashing! Very frustrating!.Version: 6.1.1

Not user friendlyApp should be more user friendly. I see clouds and storm symbols but you can’t click on them nor does it explain it on the app what they mean.. I eventually figured it out but it’s just not direct and very disorganized. My sister loved this with my niece and I remember it being spot on back in 2015. My experience... So/so.. My son is accomplishing these leaps 2-4 weeks ahead of schedule and to a complete T. I asked my friend who uses this and she said the same thing with her daughter. The good thing is it helped me understand why suddenly my son was fussy, more clingy, or usual things aren’t cutting it. So I was more patient understanding he’s going through something and able to prepare. But I wish it would adjust with your personal schedule and use a “smart adjustment” technique to predict your child’s personal track. Therefore less offense with other parents I’m seeing in reviews...Version: 10.5.2

StupidBabies will develop their abilities at their own natural pace and rhythm based on lots of factors including their genetics, their diet, their environment, and the adults who interact with them. So this app trying to tell me why my baby is crying is absolutely absurd. I feel sorry for Anyone who falls for this crap..Version: 10.4

Doesn't open!The new update doesn't seem to load/open on my phone. Please fix.Version: 4

Can’t change due dateI accidentally wrote birth date instead of due date but I can’t find anywhere to change it..Version: 7.1

Not very usefulThis app dos t offer very much for being a paid app.Version: 10.6.6

UnreliableI barely use this app. I used to think the leaps might correspond with my son’s development but the more he’s progressed the less clear that is to me. Also - functionality... has something changed? I used to understand when he was meant to be in a leap. Now I’m just not sure... one page tells me he’s not. Another says he’s in the ‘magical leap’. But on the list of leaps there is no such thing... and no leap listed for his his age. Clarity over whether you’re in a leap or not seems like a basic requirement for this app. Altogether not a great user experience and not very useful.Version: 10.3

Good Resource, Poorly RedesignedFirst off, I love the wonder weeks for helping explain baby’s behaviors as they grow and go through mental leaps. I love that it tells you what behaviors to typically look for and skills after each leap they master. I used the app with my first baby in 2018 and loved both the information provided as well as the layout of the app. It used to make it very easy to follow along with each leap. I was excited to use it with my second baby now but the new app format is not as user friendly as their old version. It makes it a little harder to follow along and the change in the flow of how the new version is written makes it confusing to keep up. It almost looks like the text was copy-pasted without being formatted. I still like that the calendar is there but miss the old format that was a lot more user friendly..Version: 10.3

Not happyVery confusing and not clear.Version: 10.7.1

Not good at all!I bought this app by recommendation. What an utter let down. I don’t know what kind of children you have been basing your findings on but the must be direct descendants of Albert Einstein because there is no way you can expect my child at 11 months to dress himself, copy his own bathing routine with a doll and draw a picture. I got myself so worked up, it is outrageous how you pray on new mother’s anxieties surrounding development to line your pockets. Disgusting and not to mention scientifically inaccurate seeing as the professor lost his university post because his findings were not supported by sufficient evidence DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY LADIES AND GENTS.Version: 10.6.1

Good until Leap 4From Leap 5 onwards the predictions are completely ridiculous and unrealistic. I’m a Speech and Language Therapist and in no way would I expect a 5 month old to understand prepositional concepts like in/on/under and to start saying protowords such as ‘ah choo’ for sneezing etc. Leap 5 also indicates that my little one is likely to be emptying cupboard and looking under rugs and in just a few weeks time in leap 6 asking for a song to be sung and entertaining a smaller baby! My baby is on track in her development and is only now starting to learn sitting up. What a load of.... Why not just continue with the realistic expectations?? Quite poor for a paid app having a lifespan of 4 months until rendered useless..Version: 10.4

Save some money and don’t get this appLet me save you some money, kids are always going through leaps and their symptoms are always similar; clingy, stranger danger, blah blah blah - one size does not fit all! Save yourself some stress too….they’ll get through it as will you. If you do really want to stress yourself out, get the book as it goes into more detail. This is one of those apps you get when you’re a new parent and you literally have no clue why your kid is suddenly different from the day before - it’s usually related to teething or a ‘leap’ of some kind or sleep regression..Version: 10.6.6

Can’t help but feel it’s a bit of a conI bought everything the app had to offer, but when the app changed it wants me to buy it all again. It just tells me that it’s restored, but nothing is restored and then gives me the option to purchase them again! I wouldn’t buy it because they can just change the app and you’ll have to do it again. I still gave 3 stars because I think it’s incredibly useful to know roughly when and why your baby is being extra fussy and I do believe the app offers a good service to parents during this time. One of my babies had very short leaps (2-3 days?) whereas one of them they seemed to stretch the whole hog (if not more!) so it shouldn’t be used as a law, more of a guide. Very useful tool..Version: 10.6.0

Good but not goodThis app is good and is right when the leaps are happening but the milestones that they are stating that the baby should be hitting are ridiculous! At 6 months its stating that my baby should be walking around the cot and crawling in and out of rooms and so on. I know every baby is different but the skills are so advanced for what they actually should be doing at 6 months. This can lead to think your baby is not developing!! If you get this app take it with a pinch of salt. Its accurate for when they get grumpy and go through a growth spurt but the skills please dont read to much into them!.Version: 10.5.2

Terrible upgradeThe new update is awful, why ruin a good thing? The last version was brilliant, disappointed to say the least.Version: 5

Informative but poorly designedThis app is just extremely poorly constructed compared to others. Not a fan of the layout and looks quite old in terms of designing. On the main page at the bottom it says “you do this” and “you do that” but its talking about your baby and not yourself, almost like a child wrote it. Also when your hovering over the leaps page, it shows where your child is but does not say what leap it is and wont let you click on the leaps to bring it up. Also on the child activities it only has 1 thing to do! Honestly a waste of my money. All that I have read on this app I already have read online for free. Other reviews are fake. Rubbish app do not waste your money..Version: 9.0.4

I like it but...I’ve been using this app and have found it helpful, but since the last update there’s no way (I can see) to add extra skills or events like you used to. My baby is saying lots of consonants and sticking out her tongue but there’s no way to actually log these things in the app, unless I make a story. Maybe they’re not part of leaps but it would be great to be able to add when these things start happening.Version: 10.3

Not accurate for us at all!My daughter was born on her due date and this app hasn’t been accurate for her at all. I was recommended it and the other reviews are good but I’m really disappointed that I spent the money on it. It’s good to see what order things to develop in (although I can get that on other apps) and the calendar feature is nice as a glance for her age with dates. However the tracking appears to be totally out for her so any ‘cranky’ days don’t correlate and they can be her happier ones and vice versa. She’s also been weeks ahead in some of the leaps so I’m getting information after it’s happened. I understand every baby is different and so nothing can be 100% accurate so am annoyed at myself that I bought into this one!.Version: 8.0.2

More parent inputI think this app would be better with more parent input. Meaning, if my child is experiencing x,y, & z then they would be going through a leap. But this app TELLS you when your child is going through a leap. For my child it has been so inaccurate with the dates. It’s almost the OPPOSITE of what he is experiencing. The one feature I do like about this app is that if my child is fussy for a few days I can look at it and say oh he might like A or B (things the app suggests due to a growth). And it typically helps the situation. However, because it is not lined up with my child’s actual leap schedule. I have to search all around for ideas through different leaps because he’s not coinciding with what the app has him scheduled for. I downloaded it around 2 months for him snd it keeps saying he didn’t ever go through the previous leaps. Which is also so annoying. If it had asked me what he went through and when it could have gotten a better idea of what his schedule is actually like. This is just a generic schedule based on my baby’s conception and birth date. I am disappointed I bought it..Version: 10.5.4

New update is a scamI wrote a 1 star review just over a week ago after the new update (it seems to have disappointed or has been removed). I’ve checked back and while you have responded to the negative reviews by unlocking the rest of the ‘checklist’ feature. It’s still not good enough. People have already purchased the full app prior to the update that had heaps of videos and content included. Now these videos have been removed and I believe a lot of the other content too. I don’t think it has been an improvement at all - rather a way to scam more money out of those who have already paid. I won’t be recommending this app to my friends or family anymore..Version: 9.0.1

Waste of moneyCompletely disappointed that I paid money for this app. It is useless.Version: 10.5.3

Not worth the purchaseDefinitely not worth the purchase. Google can give you everything AND more than this app can. I am so dissatisfied and disappointed with this app. Very much regret downloading it..Version: 10.5.1

Keeps crashingWas great but since the last update it keeps crashing, please fix!!.Version: 6.1.1

Great app but experiencing problems since the updateI’ve loved using this app - it’s been invaluable for my husband and I to be able to predict and therefore attend more consciously to our sons leaps. It’s been pretty spot on for us in terms of when certain behaviour is predicated. I used to find it very easy to use. Since the recent update however the layout has changed, it asks me for language choice every time I open it, there’s new list features- which I don’t find particularly useful and there seems to be problems now with the app- the calendar view isn’t accurate (the dates/week don’t align properly), the videos do not load and the information and usability isn’t as clear. I’ve tried deleting the app and re downloading but the same problems persist. I’ve tried to find a way of contacting someone to help but can’t find a way to do that. Anyone else having such issues?.Version: 9.0.2

UselessAll babies are different, and I should have known better than to buy an app that supposedly applies to all babies. The leaps might be skills that all babies learn, but there is no way of knowing WHEN your specific baby will develop those abilities, let alone when your baby will be fussy or go through a “stormy” period. It’s pretty absurd that the book and the app claim to give these predictive abilities to parents with a calendar. The “leaps” didn’t coincide at all with my baby. I followed the rules and went by my child’s due date, instead of birthdate, but still the calendar/chart was SO off base. My baby would have fussy growth spurts, and sleep regressions, during projected “happy” periods. And my child would master skills months sooner or later than was stated. This app is useless. I shouldn’t have wasted my money..Version: 7.2.1

So sadI am extremely disappointed not only at the way Wonder Weeks App is blatantly ripping off customers, but also the developer’s responses to PAYING customers that USED to love the app. I got and PAYED for the app a little after having my baby and used to love all the information and resources it brought (hence the reason I was happy to PURCHASE) I went and checked it this week to find out that the update is pretty much an ad to get you to pay a subscription, umm I don’t think so. And NO, stop telling people that if you had the app previous to the latest update, you have all the same information as before; that is absolutely false and you know it. It seems to me that if I payed for something PRIOR to any update I should be given the option to mantain what I originally was told I would get and not tell me that it is the same thing..Version: 9.0.1

Waste of MoneyThis talks about developmental leaps which are important to know but for $6 to buy the ap just to have access to the leap info which can easily be googled and found for free on their website and other places in the internet it is not worth it. They also advertise extras you get with buying the app which is a waste as you have to also pay for these after the fact. Don’t waste your time or money just google the information about leaps. Spoiler alert: It is completely vague on when your kid will hit a leap it is +/- 2 weeks timeline based off the due date but My premie baby hit the leaps based on off her birthdate..Version: 10.5.2

Too little informationI could have read about leaps anywhere on internet and not pay for it. The timing is also off, our baby had her leaps on totally different dates. Other than the info on the leaps, which are only a few, there is no other information. Not impressed..Version: 10.4

Not worth the $$$Just not worth paying for. The timeline of the leaps and predicted behavior were off. Also, it’s literally just an app that says, “baby may be more fussy” or “baby may sleep more poorly”. But doesn’t provide creative ways to soothe baby. It just makes you pay to confirm your baby is going through developmental stages you could find for free with a Google search. Annoyed I fell prey to this purchase as a FTM. After 1-2 months I completely forgot I even downloaded this app because it was useless. And as pointed out by the developer response, some Google searches can be misleading. However it doesn’t take much to find scientific research on baby development that is peer reviewed/ credible. Or literally ask your pediatrician to print a handout of the timeline developmental milestones- FOR FREE. Still don’t believe that what you actually get from this app is worth paying for..Version: 10.6.6

No white noise or music!I already have the book and decided to get the app because the book said that there are scientifically proven white noise tracks and music on the app. But it turns out you have to pay a hefty monthly fee to get and maintain access to these. The app description simply lists these features as 'extras', with no indication that you have to pay a subscription for them. So I really don't need the app because it offers nothing more than the book (except a diary to fill in for sleep, milestones tracking etc which other apps are much better for due to better UI etc). It turns out that I have to buy the separate 'Wonder Weeks Sleep' app for the white noise and music library - but I've already bought this one and feel cheated to be honest! Especially since I already paid for the book. Developers, please be more transparent in your description and don't waste people's (aka sleep-deprived parents') time and money!.Version: 9.0.5

New update terribleI was using this app almost daily and recording milestones and diary entries which I can look back on fondly. With this new update, the filters don’t even work for any entries made prior to the update. It is clunky and when scrolling down through previous entries the screen “jumps”. Impossible to use now. I have given up. Please revert to old version, and bring back option to export information. When I paid for this app mid last year I was happy with it. Since then it has progressively gotten worse with each update..Version: 10.4

Confirmation biasLots of people recommend this so you can explain why your baby is unsettled... but really, it’s because you’ve seen they might be, so that’s how you rationalise it. I purposefully only check it when my baby is particularly unsettled and it never aligns. The fact they say things like “your baby may sleep more OR less” (duh) and “your baby may feed more OR less”. I mean please. 2 stars rather than 1 because some of the info is interesting (but doesn’t align with my baby, who does some stuff WEEKS before they mention it).Version: 10.4

Repetitive and not accurateWish I didn’t buy this app. It has not been accurate and it’s very repetitive..Version: 10.6.9

What’s so great? Why $4?I downloaded this bc of the high ratings and hearing other moms talk about it. I feel like I’ve paid $4 just so that the app could tell me my kid is in a leap. There’s not much else that’s unique to the app that you couldn’t get from the Internet, and I’m not finding it to be very user-intuitive. The sleep diary function is buggy. I’m logging sleeps but it’s displaying them on the wrong day in the chart view. I’ll “check off” signs that she is displaying in the leap, but it doesn’t save them - so why even have the ability to check things off? Overall, I’d say if getting the peace of mind that your kid is just going through a phase is worth $4, then you should download. For me personally, that’s maybe worth $1 or could just be a free version of the app, and make people pay for the note taking and diary keeping functionality, which like I said is kind of buggy and confusing anyway. I’d like a refund..Version: 9.0.3

Terrible update!The language used in this app was already dense, and now it’s even worse. It flips between first person and second person perspective all within the same paragraph, so you are never quite sure whether they are talking about the baby or asking you to think about yourself!! The way they have displayed the text makes it harder to read, and the redesign of the chart is awful - it was so much easier to understand when everything was bigger..Version: 9.0.3

Awesome content, navigation design is trickyWhile the content is fantastic, I find this app very difficult to navigate. It be more intuitive. I can never seem to find where my daughter is up to. While I‘m aware this app is all about the "wonder WEEKS", my daughter is 9 months now, and I stopped counting her age in weeks months ago, so calculating her milestones is tricky! I'd love a timeline graphic, where I could easily see where my child is currently positioned and where she is headed..Version: 10.3

Waste of MoneyI’d recommend this app if it were free, but it just isn’t awesome enough to have to pay for it. Personally, the free “What to Expect” app is more insightful from conception to childhood. Don’t waste your money..Version: 11.1.5

Please fixComplete waste of money. Paid for and downloaded, yet the app is nowhere to be found and won't open....Version: 4.0.4

Helpful but not worth the $It’s helpful to know the timing and developmental stages of baby by age and wee but all that can also be found online if you are about it. The milestones of skills acquired after 5 months ranges so much from learning to crawl to taking steps! Makes FTM worry for nothing. I stopped using it after aside to chec when baby is entering a leap..Version: 10.6.4

Not impressed.Overall I'm disappointed in this app. You have to pay $8.00 to get it then once you're in the app you have to pay more just to use half of there stuff. Unless you spend more money the app is a little pointless. They also calculate the "wonder week" of your babies due date not birth date which makes no sense if the baby isn't born on there due date so there calculations would be completely wrong. I wish I didn't purchase the app..Version: 10.6.8

Don’t like the new set upTwo years ago I got this app. It was brilliant. I could buy just what I needed (I.e. ebook) now we have to buy all the other stuff to have access to the ebook. Plus, I had already bought it and I don’t understand why I do t have access any longer. Videos aren’t helpful and very little advice..Version: 10.4

Works well, but basic version not worth the priceThe app is fine, but there is not much actual content included in the basic version - there are many online resources that cover the same material in more depth. The in-app purchases offer more detailed information but, after being disappointed by my first purchase, I decided not to spend any more money on this app..Version: 10.6.9

Upset with new UpdateSo with the new update, this app because less ‘about you & your baby’ and more ‘about us as a company.’ What was once a; pay one fee and get all the app’s benefits, has become a; pay one fee to download, but then just kidding, we’re going to keep features from you until you SUBSCRIBE to a monthly plan. Parenting is already so expensive, so adding all these monthly subscription costs are ridiculous. Do companies not realize that we as consumers are adding them up? I get it, developing and updating apps is difficult, and a time consuming process, but the way this one changed and then didn’t address the previously paid users is super frustrating. I will be deleting and relying more on my TinyBeans app, which has always been more straightforward with their marketing strategy. We’re parents, not cash cows..Version: 9.0.1

RefreshI love this app! Its very accurate on the dates. The only thing I find disappointing is that it doesn’t refresh on its own. I have to close the app for it to refresh the days left in the leap..Version: 10.6.8

Please consider changing backI loved this app with my first, now attempting to use it is difficult. I dont like having to make a diary entry to find things out, the calendar with dates is hard to read now (used to be much easier). You should still provide a list of what to look for. This app has always been one of my top recommendations for new moms and moms struggling and I’m not sure I’ll be able to recommend it currently. Update: please fix the app calendar so im actually able to tell when the leaps are supposed to start. Also we just got through the first leap and there is no countdown to the next leap like there was when I used this a couple years ago or like there was with the first..Version: 10.3

UselessThis information contained in this app is not at all applicable to my child and is ridiculous.Version: 9.1

New version is rubbish, don’t botherThe app used to be an easy way to check the key dates and milestones in the ‘leaps’. Now the leap information seems to be a copy and paste job for every leap, it’s really difficult to work out if we’re in a leap or not, and in general the ui is unpleasant and clunky. It’s now centered around making notes and checking boxes about stuff your baby’s done, which i’m not bothered about as I don’t think I’ll still be using this app long-term and would rather write in a real baby book. And it’s trying to shoehorn in extra functionality like white noise in a subscription model which is just greedy. Don’t bother with the app, either get the book second hand or find a pdf of the leaps and dates..Version: 9.0.3

2nd baby 2 weeks earlyI loved this app for my first born. Now that my 2nd baby was born 2 weeks early, I’m always 2 weeks behind. The app refuses to allow it to be based on child development, and only focuses on ACTUAL DUE DATE. Guess what?!?! Babies born 2 weeks earlier then expected, still have the same development as those born on or after their due date. Stop basing it all on due date..Version: 10.6.6

DisappointedI’m honestly disappointed in this app, I expected it to be more informative and she’d light on my growing son, but it’s proving to be a waste of VM my money. The jargon it uses is too technical and there is an emphasis on explaining the past “leaps”. When discussing current leaps there is a lack of explanation. Please work on making this App so that I feel I spent my money on something that will help me!.Version: 9.0.3

Interesting, but not sure it’s worth itI love the idea of this app, and if it were properly implemented I’d probably be happier with having paid for it. However at it’s quite buggy / got quite a few errors so far and we’re only at 13 weeks. For example, the checklists for the first two leaps are linked (tick an item on one and the item on the other list is magically ticked as well) and I don’t think they’re meant to be (the others aren’t). I’m at 13 weeks about to go into leap 4 and on the homepage it’s telling me what I'm likely to be noticing at 10 weeks. The whole thing needs a big proofread and check through. Sadly not worth paying for in my opinion until they do..Version: 9.2.1

Confusing, repetitive, difficult to followThe information is interesting and useful to know, however whoever developed this app needs to start again, with a simple layout which makes sense. I cannot get my head around where to find current information for my baby. Such a strangely laid out app. Please update it and change to a simple layout which defaults depending on my babies age. Interesting to read then responses to reviews by Marco - ignoring the feedback and simply justifying what you’ve done vs taking in feedback to influence product design..Version: 9.0.3

Terrible and FalseThis app is ridiculous. It preys on new mothers who are wondering why their baby is particularly fussy, or good, or tired, or whatever. No baby will do the exact same thing at the exact same time. Regardless of due date and brain development. It is an absolute SCAM do not waste your money. This is the worst app I have ever purchased. Every doctor I have talked to about it just laughs. I cannot stress enough what a waste this is. It’s even terrible visually, like what a poor old 1990’s app would look like. I wish I could get my money back and throw it in the garbage, because that would be more useful than this app..Version: 9.0.3

Start dates not adjustableThe app is useful in anticipating, preparing for, surviving and thriving through developmental leaps. However as specified by the authors themselves, wonder weeks can start up to 2 weeks before or after the “expected” date in the calendar when based on due date. For those instances where a leap has started before or after the predicted “expected” or average date there is no way to manually “start” the leap so that the countdown and advice adjusts accordingly. Eg. My baby has started their leap 6 days early. The app only says “6 days until their next leap” but I would be better served to start it so I have the leap advice and “9 days until the leap ends” countdown. Similar to a menstrual cycle tracking app, the prediction date should be included to allow parents to anticipate upcoming leaps, but the app should allow for parents to manually specify when a leap actually starts for them to get the most out of the app..Version: 10.7.1

Disappointing and frustratingThis app used to be great! I found it so helpful that I even purchased the book in-app. However, since going back after their update I am now prompted to pay a subscription fee to view something I have already paid for outright. Have tried multiple times to contact the support team, they offered me a 6 month free subscription but no indication of when I can have full access back to what I have already purchased and just stopped replying..Version: 10.3

Confusing and dates don’t matchThis app is not user friendly at all. It’s very confusing to navigate. The dates have never matched. For example, it’ll say a certain leap starts around 12 weeks after due date but then on another page of the app will tell me this very same leap is due to start about 13.5 weeks after due date. So completely conflicting information. Has been the same problem for every single leap. I emailed them about it and all they said was to try putting in a different due date. But why should I have to put in a random (wrong) due date! Completely ridiculous app and a total waste of money. Can’t use it as it makes no sense..Version: 9.0.4

Waste of moneyAt first it was helpful until after the baby’s 4th month. the milestones got really ridiculous and the signals got so repetitive (eg, “baby cries more often”).Version: 10.4

Used to be great before update...I have followed the wonder weeks with both of my kids. I was excited that the app provided a list of skills that you could see after a leap. However, they updated the app and completely changed the information. There is now an extensive list of signs your baby is going thru a leap (almost every behavior known to man is listed) but the list of skills learned after the leap is subpar at best. I guess they want you to pay for the ebook. Also the information is the same leap after leap. I wish I could have a refund as this app is now useless. I also read some of the developers responses to 1 star reviews, and I want to say that the information previously provided IS NOT still available in the app. The information available is mediocre and does not provide detail as it did before. Please change it back, or include the previously provided detailed information again..Version: 9.0.4

I ALREADY BOUGHT THE APP!I purchased this app earlier this year and have found it helpful but since the latest update I can no longer see everything I could before because they want me to pay a subscription fee on top of having purchased the app in the first place. This is a really poor way to treat customers. When I bought the app it wasn’t with the understanding I would eventually have to subscribe monthly to maintain full access. If you want to charge new customers to subscribe - fine, but people who bought the app before the subscription should not be stripped of existing access unless they pay more. They should be grandfathered in. Shame on you wonder weeks. Not only will I not be subscribing I will not recommend the app, book or website to any new mom again. Not ok. I will be requesting a refund from Apple for this purchase..Version: 9.0.0

General information presented in a convoluted wayNot sure why this is such a highly rated app but something must have changed drastically since then. The app reads like an essay on general brain development steps that happen from birth and on. The only personalization it does is use your baby’s gender pronouns and to make some random chart about when your baby will be fussy based on his/her due date. I say it random because it was not accurate for me and seemed to be randomly created. The information is laid out like reading an article published in a scientific journal and information for a current milestone is split between different obscure sections— not what I want from an app. If I’m reading about today’s leap, why do I have to scroll (all the way) back to the top, click the “more” link, then click the second tab under that to read more on the associated milestone for today?? Put all of the info for today’s milestone on the same page! I want quick reads presented in a super coherent and attractive manner. But their content is so blah and general. I get the same salient points in a more straightforward fashion from my pediatrician and from the pregnancy tracker apps. I hate it. It hasn’t helped me at all. I wish I could get my money back. And I hope no one else wastes their money..Version: 9.0.3

Helpful appSuper helpful, accurate app however I find it quite hard to navigate..Version: 7.3.3

Default masculinity, mandatory binary genderLike many other parents now, my partner and I made a careful and considered decision to use they/them pronouns for our baby because we don’t want our language to shape the our assumptions about our baby’s gender identity. For us, for trans people and queer parents it’s upsetting and alienating to choose ‘unknown’ for the gender (this is accurate because we won’t know anything about their gender until they tell us) and for the app to then apply he/him pronouns to our baby. It’s incorrect and unnecessary and makes it hard to use the app. Hopefully we can still get something useful out of it but this is really frustrating right off the bat and makes us not want to use it. They/them pronouns would be ideal, but alternating he and her would be better than it currently is. Thanks.Version: 10.5.5

For the price, should have moreThis app isn't cheap. It gives basic information & summary of whats to come. *To then charge add ons for chapters inc sleep chapters or audio version (which penalises people with vision issues) etc is very cheeky. Just charge one higher price to give access to everything! *No real ability to log anything except via a notes page which doesn't help at all. It should have an add to calendar note system on the thundercloud days (touch the date on timeline to add a note) To remind you of how they were at that moment. Not sift through separate notes. *No community option to ask a question to Ww parents. Missing a trick. Look at Ovia pregnancy & parenting app for knowing how its done. *I personally found a used book from ebay for £2.50 and glad i did because otherwise id have been very annoyed with this app & the price it charges you for nothing more than its brand name. *If i could of requested a refund, i would of by now as there are free parenting apps that are more comprehensive than this..Version: 8.0.2

DisappointingIt wasn't the cheapest iTunes purchase only to find vague information and many of the videos don't work..Version: 6.0.1

Not usefulYou can find everything this app provides for free on google. Don’t waste your money..Version: 9.1

Limited content on this paid appAlthough this is a paid app, it only lists examples of behaviour to look out for and refers the user to buy the book for the full list. So despite having paid for the app, I need to make further purchases to actually get a good understanding of my baby’s behaviour during a “leap”. If I’d known this before purchasing the app, I would not have bothered buying the app. The developer has responded to my above criticism that this app was advertised as a “summary”. I’ve reread the description of the app and do not believe that this was clearly advertised. The key features even say, “learn ALL about the leaps and bounds and the fussy phases of your baby” and “Read the bestselling Wonder Weeks book here in this app”. The description does not advertise the app as being merely a summary if further payments are not made..Version: 9.0.5

Not particularly usefulI find the app weird and glitchy - some videos are just a blank screen when I press play I.e 2 of the 3 videos in leap 3 “smooth transitions” wouldn’t play. Some of the videos and explanations don’t seem to be helpful or easy to understand analogies ie. leap 4 “Events” uses the analogy that adults understand that when a ball is dropped it may bounce again and again. Huh? Are you referring to cause and effect? Child development involves some really complex concepts and I don’t think the app explains them particularly well. I certainly don’t think the app is worth the cost..Version: 7.1

Content is good UI/UX is badContent is good UI/UX is bad..Version: 9.1

DisappointedThe app is great for knowing when leaps are coming. the skills part? not so much. leap 6 skills are things that a baby that young would never be doing like asking to build a block tower, playing peek a boo with a younger baby, showing that they think something is dirty, understanding names of animals. leap 7 skills consist of trying to talk on the phone, imitating cooking, trying to undress themselves, saying “yum” when eating. i doubt any 9 month old would be doing these things. i wish i didn’t pay for this app. there are way better FREE apps that can sum up milestones and skills that your baby should be doing. i feel like i paid money just to know why my daughter is fussy, which could honestly be a number of reasons that don’t have an underlying issue..Version: 10.6.0

RidiculousI am so upset that I spent money on this app. The “leaps” are insane. Basically telling me that my 7 month old should be walking and talking by now. How about making the skills more realistic instead of making mothers stress about their babies not developing on time?? I’ve never seen a more ridiculous time line. Don’t bother with this app unless you want to be worried about your perfectly normal baby..Version: 10.6.1

ZERO!!!! Didn’t find it useful at allIF I COULD GIVE A ZERO RATING I WOULD........I didn’t find this app useful at all for a first time parent. I’m disappointed I spent money on this app. The symptoms/signs to look for at each developmental “leap” are exactly the same and i feel they describe a baby, that is tired, hungry or overstimulated. I don’t feel it describes anything close to what to prepare yourself for or how to comfort your baby that is obviously unhappy. Each section that describes the “leap” your baby is transitioning to doesn’t tell you anything specific about what new skills or sensations your baby will/ should be developing. I do feel each section describing a leap provides you with very vague signs/symptoms of fussiness or being a baby in general. I’m sorry I purchased this. UPDATE....developer reply was LESS THAN HELPFUL. They didn’t offer to help or fix anything. Developer reply doesn’t even attempt clear up any information about “leaps”. CONTINUES TO BE COMPLETELY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS APP. Very sorry money was wasted on what the developer claims is book and scientific research worthy, it’s not worth any of my time. VAGUE SIGNS ANS SYMPTOMS ARE NOT HELPFUL OR INFORMATIVE AND CERTAINLY NOT WORTH ANY MONEY; google is more informative..Version: 9.0.5

Not worth the moneyWas recommended this app by a friend and honestly it is not worth the money I paid for it. Sure it gives some insights (the same ones for the duration of a leap which can be over a month), but so far it has not yet been right once about stormy or sunny days in the 6 months of my baby’s life. Every baby is different, I’m well aware, but even a broken clock is right twice a day. I was also under the false impression some chapters from the book would be included which they are for an additional fee. With the limited amount of information given for the initial cost of the app, confusing interface, lack of ability to chat with other parents also using the app (in lockdown this would be a game changer for some of us) I wish I would have given this a miss. It’s £3.99 misspent..Version: 9.2.2

UselessThis app just wants you to spend more money and isn’t helpful at all. It’s not user friendly and is difficult to navigate. I’m completely disappointed. I want my money back!!.Version: 9.1

$7?Why is this $7?.Version: 10.6.6

Not accurate for usI have heard many people say this app/the book are amazing and an incredible predictor of their baby’s mood and skills, but we saw basically 0 correlation between the predicted “leaps” and our baby’s mood, sleep, or skills. Sometimes we would get to a leap and he was already doing some of the skills, sometimes the skills seem impossible and way outside of the appropriate milestones (eg at 9 months: “asks you to sing a song”... how can a baby who cannot speak articulate something so abstract? Am I crazy? How could they be possible?). Aside from making me feel like my baby was failing to live up to some of these ridiculous “skills”, I saw no correlation between his behavior and the predicted leaps. Currently, we are having a really hard few days- lots of crying, super clingy, poor sleep— well the app claims he is in a “sunshine” part of his development, so he’s supposed to be happy and doing well right now. I just don’t get it at all. For us, it seems complete garbage..Version: 10.4

Good for anyone believes in horoscopesThis app wasn’t useful for me. It’s just vague enough in the descriptions of “leaps” so that anyone can interpret it as their baby, but there’s no real useful information . Example: some babies might sleep more with this leap, some might sleep less. Some babies might eat more, but some might eat less... are you kidding me? I guess it might ease people’s minds that what their baby is or isn’t doing is “normal,” but this app really offers nothing you can’t get for free elsewhere. As a first time parent, the best advice I think I can give to anyone from my (limited!) 5 months of experience, read as much as you want (like frantic 3 AM googling... I did enough of that), take it all with a grain of salt, try different methods and find what works for your baby, and what works for your family. But all of this said, if having this app helps you ease your anxiety, then it’s money well spent. Just don’t expect it to tell you much. I also thought the design of the app was fairly sub-par..Version: 9.1

Don’t waste your moneyNone of the leaps have happened to my baby in the timeframe the app says. The information is spotty at best and they push you to buy chapters from the book. Borrow the book from the library, don’t get this app..Version: 9.0.3

MsComplete waste of time and money. There is very little information given and it is all very general and vague. There are lots of websites around which give better information..Version: 4.3.2

Debunked - wouldn’t recommend even if it was freeRegret buying. Recommended by friends but I wouldn’t recommend it even if it was free. Wish I’d done the quick google that showed the admittedly interesting research this app and the book are based on wasn’t replicable and the original authors went after colleagues/former students who did the follow up research… if it helps you to be more empathic and understanding of your baby great - otherwise mostly very vague, contradictory and essentially useless. The most amazing thing about this app is how well it’s done in sales..Version: 10.6.1

New layoutGreat concept. Loved the information. But HATE the new layout..Version: 11.1.4

One Helpful FeatureI appreciate this app mostly because of the calendar view, which tells you when your child will be going through a leap. I find that helpful. However, with the recent update, it has turned into a muddled mess of information, most of which doesn’t make much sense. Yes, it’s supposed to go hand in hand with the book, but surely they could have designed it in a way so that it is at least understandable without the book. The check lists aren’t very helpful to me because they’re just restating the fact that your kid is going to be grumpy and clingy during a leap. That information is already found under the What Are Leaps tab. It’s difficult to really pinpoint the problem with the app, but as another reviewer said, I think it could be summed up as too much redundancy. Everything is stated multiple times but none of it is intuitive or user friendly. I like the idea of this app and I hope they will be able to simplify it a bit to make it useful. Otherwise I’ll probably just delete it..Version: 10.4

Easier to navigate nowUpdated recently so easier to follow and jump around now, however the sleep section where you can record naps seems to get confused with dates and puts records out of order..Version: 10.3

Utter nonsenseSomeone recommended this app to me and in my sleepy 3am breastfeeding state I bought it. It’s utter garbage. No scientific fact, just random weeks they call leaps. My baby didn’t follow these leaps at all, and whatmore it doesn’t tell you anything useful such as things to look out for or what to do- it just lets you document your babies behaviour at various times and tells you when your baby might have a “difficult week” and when they could be the “sunshine of the house”. I can’t believe I paid £3.99 for this, the creators must be sat laughing at what saps we all are buying this when so sleep deprived. Shame on them..Version: 10.3

I wanted to like thisI had been using for the past few weeks and really liked. Then today I tried updating the diary and it crashed every time I tried to save. I restarted my phone and then tried deleting the app so I could restart. It completely wiped everything I had been documenting for the past two weeks. I don’t even feel like starting over I’m so upset. I also hate that every time I took notes in the diary it would move me to the top of the page instead of where I left off. The napping page if you moved your finger the slightest bit just moved you to the next page so you had to start all over if you didn’t get the time right. The leaps have been somewhat accurate but I don’t know that it’s worth the $4. And now that all my data and memories from those two weeks are gone I don’t think I’ll continue using. Very disappointed..Version: 10.4

Not worth it!This app was strongly recommended by other moms and honestly, I don't understand why. It's a waste of time and money. Not once has my baby's pattern actually matched the information on the app (cloudy and sunny weeks). Not user friendly either. I got it hoping it would help me understand his moods but sadly, there's no such thing. No two babies are exactly alike..Version: 9.0.3

Hard to navigateI like the content but find the app hard to navigate and frustrating. Popup screens with confusing checkboxes and force exit screens make no sense to me. Why can’t it follow standard design patterns?.Version: 10.4

Pas super informatifJe trouve l’application vraiment chère par rapport aux informations qu’elle contient. C’est quand même général et souvent évident à voir directement sur bébé, ou on peut trouver ce genre d’info sur des sites gratuits. Je la consulte rarement et quand je le fais on dirait que les “leap” sont pas synchronisés avec ma fille..Version: 10.6.9

Wonder Week NotesAs a new mum, I have really enjoyed checking back in to the app over the last ten months. The info and bits of what to expect and to look out for are a great help! After my phone updated, I have lost all my wonder week notes... when opening the app today, I had to start from scratch entering all my babies details again. I am pretty disappointed, as I had written down a bunch of his milestones. Is there any way to get these back?.Version: 9.0.3

Very poor designSo confusing, can’t see what the last leap was or when it ended, how long it went for. Waste of money, I just deleted it within a day. Not much info and not user friendly THanks for your response. The chart doesn’t say where the leaps are or what leap it is. You need to go back and forth between the different screens and work it all out your self. It would be so easy if it just said ‘leap 2’ above the leap on the chart, and then even better if you could click on that and go to info about the leap, instead you need to work out where the leaps are your self, then go back to a different screen to read about. Waste of money.Version: 7.0.1

Don’t pay for itFirst time parent and I was told by so many moms that this was the best thing to know when your child will be going through changes, sleep regressions, ideas on how to keep their development going. But it just tells you things he’ll do EVENTUALLY. Its asking if my 5 month old can lift up the rug, untie his shoe laces, sleeping poorly, quieter than usual. It’s just pointless. It doesn’t tell me how to keep him entertained while doing things that help his development, it doesn’t let you know what they might be learning during a certain period. It’s stupid. It’s easier to just look up a milestone chart and keep up with your babies development that way, look up sleep regressions and write down when he’s being cranky. At least that way it’s free. Beyond disappointed with a pointless $2 app..Version: 10.3

Good app, update threw me offThe leap schedule alone is def worth the $4, the sanity it gives is priceless. Knowing that the stormy period will come to an end and your baby will go back to the sweet angel they once were is such a relief! I found that to be the most helpful and useful part of the ap. Leap 4 was awful but it ended exactly on the day it said it would. We were both about to loose our minds. Im a first time parent and the ap updated just before leap 5, i like the new look and format but not the the interactive parts. Like other reviewers the diary part is not useful, I really don't have time for that. Much preferred the previous way clicking off each task when accomplished. Im often interrupted and like being able to pick up where left off. Developer, please can you double check the skills? Leap 6 says baby will ASK someone to sing a song & understand the names of animals.. baby is not close to being that verbal.. im wondering if something glitched. Also I tried to use the nap tracker and its more trouble than its worth. Have to be able to pick up where i left off, not enter start and end at once.. or all naps. I tried to do it as the day went and it didnt add the total time together. i can barely remember how many time i fed baby last night. Please make things as simple as possible, my brain capacity is limited to most crucial items or not at all..Version: 10.4

Cannot share with spouse!They will make your spouse purchase the app on their phone and they cannot login to your child’s profile! Not worth the $$.Version: 11.1.2

Waste of moneyI’ve heard people rave about this app, so I bought it and am totally disappointed. Spelling and grammatical errors everywhere, totally not user friendly, and on top of paying for the app they want you to subscribe to have access to the rest of the features? Colossal waste of money. Deleting the app and wish I could get my money back..Version: 9.0.2

Handy but don’t follow it blindlyFor the first few months after my first child was born I was constantly checking the app. He’s now 11 months and I decided to have a look for the first time in the last 2 months or so. Some of the skills that is suggested your child might have developed sound so unrealistic and as a parent you really need to filter all the information out there.Version: 10.7.1

Questionable information!I really wouldn’t bother… My little one is currently 5 months old and it Says things like - talk to him a lot - absolutely you should be doing this as he is getting familiar with words. It then goes onto to say, ‘when you put his sandwich on the table, say here’s your sandwich’. Here’s where I find issue. What five month old is eating a sandwich.. it just makes me question the knowledge and understanding of the individuals who created this app that they think five month olds are ploughing through ham sandwiches! Sounds like something my husband would have written pre baby. For us none of the timings of his leaps have been accurate at all and why would you want to know when your baby is going to be fussy, it’s sadistic! Just go with it, trust me, you’ll know when they’re fussier then normal! I’ve found I’ve not used the app at all and gain a lot more information reading about age development online via different educational resources. I know there is also a lot of concern also for parents missing signs that their baby is unwell as they chalk it down to ‘going through a leap’. In summary, spend your £5 on a rattle instead, your baby will appreciate that so much more..Version: 10.6.8

Several errorsIn the beginning I loved this app, however as we got through to more leaps the app has SO many errors that defeat the purpose of using the app. The skills described in many of the leaps are very inaccurate, not age appropriate and it ends up telling you nothing about what your child has learnt during that period. Extremely annoying since this app is not free, I’ve paid to learn about my child’s development and better understand what they’re going through and I’m not getting it. The timing of the leaps for my child has been accurate..Version: 10.5.2

It crashes... can't even open it anymore.I was adding pictures and now it won't let me use it. It keeps crashing.... and I spent money on it so you think it wouldn't crash because I am adding pictures like the app says I can do..Version: 10.5.5

Interesting concept, but not linked to realityThe app is interesting to read, but in no way linked to the reality of our situation. My friends swore by it, but it just wasn’t even close to what we experienced. But if it makes you feel better to have a working theory as to what’s going on, give it a shot and try to make it fit... for us things just fell apart at random for random lengths of time. I don’t even think we fluked a single alignment with this app’s anticipated leaps etc 😂.Version: 8.0.2

Poorly designedThis app has GREAT info but is poorly designed and difficult to navigate. Leap information is hidden under separate areas, areas that can be accessed by multiple ports. Just put ALL the info in one place, instead of sprinkling it several places. There is also conflicting information that leads to heavy confusion: the front page specifies when the next leap will arrive, and doesn’t change when in that leap. So halfway through leap 4 it still says “Baby does not make the 4th developmental leap just yet”. Why doesn’t the information update as time passes? Seems like an easy fix that would greatly improve user satisfaction. BUT it does have great info and good tips for managing leaps and encouraging mental development, 3 stars..Version: 9.1

UselessInstantly disappointed in this app. Wish I could get a refund and just delete it. Will never use. I don’t understand the good reviews. Save your money..Version: 10.6.0

Worst app everThe most difficult app To navigate that I have!!! Why is it so difficult to read the leap diary? What’s the point in having it if I can’t figure what on earth it means??? I entered my babies birthday instead of the due date so all my dates are wrong anyway and I don’t know how on earth you change it... no buttons in settings to alter. Totally pointless me having this app! Also, some of the information is repeated during each leap so basically... every couple of weeks, your baby gets a little fussier and then better. That’s all you need to know no point in getting the app!!!.Version: 9.1

Inaccurate and a total waste of moneyThis app has been inaccurate for my daughter all the way along. Yes the due date was incorrect for starters due to doctors disagreement of age during pregnancy but once she was born and due date was corrected this app still didn’t track her development right. I even changed her due date on the app to have the first few leaps line up correctly according to their predictions, from leap 3 onwards was totally inaccurate. She was experiencing leaps at completely different times, then when you go to add in signals and skills learnt they are all the same?? So many missing skills she’s developing that aren’t even there and repetition of skills that have been option for months. Completely stopped using it for the purpose of “Wonder Weeks” and just started using it for notes, photos and tracking naps. Then today went on the app to insert her update for the day, save it all and all my data and notes of her progress gone! Tried restoring my app to its last back up and that didn’t even work. Total waste of money!!!.Version: 10.7.1

Confusing & Hard to useI find this app really hard to navigate! Everything is hidden away in 20 different places. It gave me no new information for over 30 days. At this point I haven’t been able to use the app for over 2 weeks because it’s been the same information and I read it when it came up originally. I even got in touch with the developers because I thought it was broken. Would have minded so much if it was free but for 4 quid, bounty is a much better and free app that gives you little bits of information every day. As well as the book my baby week by week which was for more helpful!.Version: 9.0.3

Upgrade failThe new upgrade won't open on my iPod at all. Think I need a refund thanks.Version: 5

Terrible UpdateUsed this app for my first child and loved it so am using it again for my second who’s now 8 months old. The new user face is terrible, difficult to navigate and takes away from the overall point of the app. Why change what was working? Most importantly please add the counter back to the main screen where it’s easy to see at first glance; as can be seen on previous comments this is a popular feature that people are missing with the new updates - listen to your users and please make the app more user friendly..Version: 10.3

Why did it change to subscription?This app was great, I BOUGHT the app when my baby was born 6 months ago and it was soo helpful with info on what was happening in her little brain and how to help in the fussy stages. I honestly went to this app almost every week. Today I open it and to my surprise, the app which had already been paid for once, now became a subscription. I am very disappointed in this update decision, everything was already there, seeing as how I was able to read on future leaps, what’s the sub for now? It’s not like the leaps changed they are all still the same. Shame. At least have the decency to warn the app purchasers that there was going to be an update and that it would change the app to a monthly subscription, give us the choice whether to update and join the sub plan or stay on the old version which had already been paid for anyways..Version: 9.0.0

Belle application mais ne convient pas pour tous.Je n’aurais probablement pas payé cette application pour autant d’incertitudes. Tout est noté mais il y a beaucoup d’exemple comme « bébé boit plus ou bébé boit moins », en fait, c’est trop « vague » comme supposition .. les bonds varient vraiment, je constate en fait que tout est plutôt « normal » dans les agissements de bébé alors je n’aurai jamais vraiment eu besoin de cette application. Je crois que cette appli est pratique pour celle qui n’ont AUCUNE information sur la parentalité/livres/etc.Version: 10.6.6

So random and not helpfulI don’t understand everyone’s fascination with this. I find it completely arbitrary..Version: 11.1.5

Generic and wildly inaccurate info.It’s not an expensive app so I guess if it makes you feel better when your baby is fussy and you want a ‘reason’ then go for it. But if you TRULY want to understand your baby and teach them based on where they are at developmentally this ISNT the resource for that. I haven’t found it to really be worth the money. Seems like according to the app your child is almost always in a leap with maybe a week or two break in between. The milestones and what your baby might be able to do are definitely not accurate amd often not even developmentally age appropriate. For my 5 month old, his current leap says he may CRAWL after a parent. Uh, what? I thought this was based on research, what 5 month olds are crawling? The ‘activities’ to do with your baby to help during the leap are super basic things that you are probably going to do anyway..Version: 10.6.5

DisappointedI paid for this very average app , upgraded my iPhone and it’s the only thing that just will not upload from my iCloud back up Also it’s obviously saying things happen at the absolute latest possible time because my twins born early and my niece born right on time are all so far ahead of this app it’s pointless looking at anyway. Honestly just want it to download on my new phone out of principle!.Version: 8.0.1

DisappointedNot giving as much information as I thought it would.. Very little information. You can just go on the internet and find even more information than what you have on the app. I don’t know what all the hype is about.. Not worth the money.:(.Version: 10.5.4

Fairy pointless app for meMaybe it’s because I did not download it as soon as my baby was born so I missed the first 4 leaps, but since I’ve had this app I find it fairly pointless and generally it does not correspond to my child’s moods/behaviours so it is not even reassuring... Every leap appears to have the same signs and skills and no insight whatsoever in what may be going on in between leaps. I would be disappointed if it had been for free. I’ll keep it and continue to check it in the hope it may improve but thus far a waste of money (albeit a small amount). If I’m not using this right, I’d be happy to stand corrected as many mums rave about it....Version: 10.4

Very confusing appPurchased by mistake and they wouldn’t refund the purchase so I decided to use it anyway (thought I was purchasing a different baby app). It’s not well laid out and when trying to view the next “leap” it takes you back to the previous leap. There was a competition too where you could win prizes, however the prizes were just discounts on their own products..Version: 10.7.0

Waste of moneyA friend recommended this app so I purchased with an open mind. It was a total waste of money. All of the information is irrelevant to actual milestones, and puts a lot of pressure on you and your child..Version: 10.7.1

Not accurateThe leaps make no sense. My baby is supposed to be in leap 7 but he hasn’t done anything from leap 6 yet.Version: 10.6.0

Horrible to use nowWas a good app until you updated it this week now it’s just total rubbish, have the info has gone like the day counter for how many days left in each leap to how long to the next. Was worth buying but not after the updates. A lot of users are far from happy about the rubbish update..Version: 10.1

NOT user-friendlyThis app is a mess. The information might be good... if you can even find it. It’s such a pain to navigate. I wish so badly they would redesign because when I do randomly stumble on relevant information, it’s interesting and I enjoy it. Especially tips for what baby might enjoy that week. But then I can’t even remember how to get there and it’s way too much work. They need to streamline and make things much more simple and clear. Right now there are several ways to access the (almost) exact same info spread across the app. PLEASE consolidate. I’m looking for another app in the meantime. When I exit out of this review I’m going to download the Sparks or whatever one I saw advertised when I searched Wonder Weeks to review..Version: 9.0.4

Old VS NewI absolutely LOVED this app and have been using this since August when my little one arrive. However there has been a recent update in which when I am using white noise (heavy rain) it is no longer a continuous and uninterrupted. There is a clear pause when it loops back which is incredibly annoying since it never did it before. I also used to have to ability to scroll through the Wonder Week app itself and still have the white noise playing, but now it stops. As I said loved the app and if these things were to be rectified and put back to the way they were I would LOVE it again and would give it 5 stars no problem..Version: 10.2

Slimmed down from bookIt’s great to see the weeks when the growth spurts take place and the quick info what the baby learns. However it’s quit static compare to the book. I was hoping it has all the forms that are in the book but that is not the case. You cannot record when the spurt took place. Once you ticked a skill if stays for that spurt so it’s not really a diary where you can report what you have seen in the day to map out trends. The sleep reporting is also off as the sleep over midnight is allocated only the previous day not the actual sleeping day..Version: 10.6.6

Good, but....A great guide, but disappointing to have to now pay extra for more information on each stage after already purchasing..Version: 5.1.2

App is too complicated and redundantNot worth paying for this. There are so many options and every time I log into the app it seems like I am asked to do a homework assignment! Not concise and they give basically every option under the sun — your child may do this or this or the other thing, basically just equivocating, and in the end you just end up telling the app what your baby is doing and not the other way around (what your baby should be doing). I understand different babies develop differently, but honestly nothing insightful from this app. My advice is just enjoy your child and you don’t need this app. **Updated to 1 star from 2 star for the poor response from developer which do not acknowledge the flaws in the app, rather trying to defend it. App may have allegedly helped thousands of parents. Just didn’t help me (and may not help you) hence my honest objective review based on my personal experience. That’s how reviews work, the stars average out based on everyone’s personal experience. See other low star independent reviews that express the same sentiment as I have. Honestly only after leaving my review did I see others like mine and was perhaps not surprised they describe the same frustrations with the app. The UX leaves much to be desired. My advice is just check in with your pediatrician about your child’s development as we did (and as you should) rather than waste time/money on this app..Version: 10.1

Hoodwinking new parents.This app just lists every possible feeling your baby could feel and says it could be going through that. Even when it says she is going through “a leap” it’s never accurate. It’s just to take advantage of new parents..Version: 10.6.6

Customer service awful and left feeling ripped offI had paid for this app and after a 30 second click through, I realised very quickly that it wasn’t what I expected and very US orientated. It didn’t suit my needs to I immediately got in touch to seek help and kindly requested a refund. I eventually got a reply saying that it wasn’t to do with them and basically tough luck, it is what it is. I’ve tried to get in touch multiple times to resolve. It’s been very unfortunate and left me feeling ripped off as a customer from a money grabbing app. Still no response after several requests for support and a refund..Version: 9.1

Not accurate for us at allAnd yes I used the due date. This app was co plethora off in terms of leap milestones and mood predictions. Might work for others but definitely not us..Version: 10.6.6
