    Default Is it just me or does this program just not work?

    Hi, New and about to cancel if I can't figure out how to make this thing actually function. In the phonics section, they are asking for sound identification from sponges that make no sounds. In the math section, they asked for coins to be dragged and dropped in a piggie bank, but the coins don't move. I am using puffin academy on a tablet. Is this the problem? Does it just not work well on tablets?

    Many thousands of families say, "It works!"

    I'm not sure why the sound isn't functioning on Puffin Academy for you. Can you adjust the main volume on your tablet? As for the drag and drop . . . you have probably overlooked the handy mouse tool in the Puffin Academy app. It sticks out as a tab, near the bottom, on the right hand side. Click on the mouse and then click on what you want to drag. Then, don't actually drag. Just click on where you want that item dropped.

    I hope this helps. My own kids use T4L via Puffin Academy on the iPhones on a regular basis, but it is a less awkward to use a desktop or laptop computer.

    Thank you for the tip. I have a Kindle Fire I was trying to figure out how to drag for a long time, lol. While the mouse didn't work in Puffin (Kindle issue, not app issue), I found that double tapping the item to be dragged (holding your finger down and dragging on the second tap) works well. I also found that this http://goo.gl/vJfLdK paired with this http://goo.gl/cVf2Q4 turns any Android or iOS device into more of a PC feel for users.
