  • Can't get enough nemo

    by myLittlePony123

    My daughter loves Dory & Nemo so she had a lot of fun reading the story & going through the activities

  • Dory!!

    by tvlady232

    My grandson loves this app.

  • Need support for iPad mini!!

    by Gamby35

    The book itself is very good, but on the iPad mini(i realize ipad mini is not listed as a supported device, but that needs to change!) this does not scale very well! Please update and fix ASAP!

  • Continuious Crashing...

    by Hot Mess :/

    Our child adores these characters and initally it was a favorite book, but now it freezes up causing it to crash with each use. Would truly appreciate the developers repairing the coding to remove the glitches. Has potential of being a great book app if fixed.

  • Best App for Kids

    by Motherhood Bliss

    This app works great and my 2-year-old son loves it! This is my favorite of all our kid apps too, since not only can my son listen & watch the story, but there are coloring pages & the "talk with Dory" activity. The app takes up a lot of space, but it's been well worth it for us.

  • Wonderful Book

    by Greg T Carpenter

    This book is wonderful. The pics and video look stunning on my new iPad. I love that there are actual character voices from the film. The Dori activity is also fun. Reminds me of the attraction at Epcot. Not sure why there are one star reviews. Maybe some folks haven't taken time to figure out how to use the app correctly.

  • Fun and entertaining

    by pinkyrose

    My four year old love it. Great app, great story and just like the movie.

  • No sound

    by Okay! So so!

    The first two pages on the story have no sound by narrator, otherwise great app for two year old.

  • Awesome!!!

    by Debm7558

    My grandson 2 yr old loves this story and he will sit and totally chill out while it reads to him. He quickly learned how to navigate and go thru the story on his own. Thank you for making theses available.

  • Favorite

    by Keeler5

    This is my 3 year olds favorite app. She asks for it as soon as we walk in the door everyday.

  • Swimmingly Splendid

    by peaceloveandringo

    A beautiful app, the kids read it over and over. Amazing animations and cute tappables!

  • Entertaining storybook

    by Becccaaa

    My 5yo was entertained by the painting, puzzles, & matching. We had a few good laughs with Dory too which is like the other talking animal apps.

  • Great

    by jbirdtweet

    This works wonderfully on my iPad 3. The graphics and animation are colorful and detailed. You can choose to be read to, to read on your own, or to record your own voice recording for each page. My toddler really likes the coloring pages and the storybook.

  • Love this app!

    by imauntie

    My four year old loves the matching game!!!

  • Ck1

    by Finding disappointment

    This app seams to be pretty cool but it keeps crashing on the fourth or fifth page. I don't know if it is just my issue or what but I don't have this problem with any other apps. My disappointment is not great as my three year old sons. Please fix this problem.

  • Great app!

    by Reynat

    Who knew that Whale chat with Dory would keep my kids so entertained! They roll around in fits of laughter. The story is great, it does such a good job of capturing the magic of the Nemo movie.

  • Packed with Value

    by @Dom

    Probably the most value-per-second of any book experience in the App Store. If you love the story, keep this with you.

  • Amazing!

    by jcoursen

    This book is beautiful and so much fun.

  • You can only love this app

    by Turk Family

    The same reason that makes you go to the theater to see the movie in 3D will make you experience this app again and again... My niece loves it!

  • Use your own voice

    by Michael4847

    The ability to record your own voice and play it back for each page makes this app worth it's weight in gold. Great interactive book :)

  • 1.2 Gigs????

    by Saturatesinger

    Very good story but very confused and irritated as to why it takes up 1.2 Gb for a storybook app.. I have plenty of other apps with far more to them that take up nowhere near this much space. Also the apps buttons extend past the screen of my iPad 3, I have to click the tiny edge that is showing, which is quite difficult

  • Hate this now

    by Mandgsmom

    I used to love this game until they tried an update and it froze for three days while draining my battery. Finally deleted it but am really annoyed since I paid for it

  • Dory Invisible

    by CatTheRat

    Problem with current version when talking with Dory. You can hear her but not see her. Can you fix please?

  • Horrible

    by Lazytech

    Clocking in at over 1 GB not 340 MB they are not telling the truth about the size of this app. Poor graphics, rough and slow page transitions. Awkward pace. We love nemo, this depressed me...

  • Slow and Choppy

    by EmmaMkao

    Don't believe those who give this app a five star rating. This app is very slow, choppy, and terrible. The graphics is terrible too. For 6.99 this app is a rip off. Don't buy.

  • Slow

    by Jbsl2

    I was excited to find a reading book for this movie! After using it, I wish I hadn't bought it. Very slow to turn pages, and slow to react. Not worth the money. My child would loose interest waiting for it!

  • Disappointed

    by Concerned gmom

    This cost 3 times as much as several other interactive books for my granddaughter and had much less detail. The colors are beautiful, but it is boring. Worst than that the theme bothered me, I do not want to explain the food chain or pet neglect that leads to death. Wish I had not purchased, thought Disney would stand for quality.

  • Too slow to load

    by Satene2012

    This is a really cute app but once you execute it takes seconds!!! To respond. Should be instant. My 3 year love it but grew bored waiting!

  • Excellent storybook for one of Pixar's best!

    by Paul Norris

    The book practically comes to life from beginning to end, love the page interactions!!! Whale speak with Dori is an app in itself, great fun!

  • A-dory-able!

    by LeoLover01

    Chat with Dory game.... super cute, super fun!!

  • Incredible!

    by MamaBaker2

    We absolutely love this new app! My kids favorite thing to do is speak whale with Dory, and it's hilarious to watch their reactions when she speaks back.
