A new Balloonimals photo album lets kids save their Balloonimals to a special Balloonimals folder in you Camera Roll, letting them view their photos all in one place. Note that if you'd rather not save the photos, you can go to Settings > Balloonimals and move the toggle next to "SavePicturesToAlbum" to the left so that it is no longer showing green.
Other than that, just some fine tuning and a new app preview!
Beautifully rendered Balloonimals spring to life when you blow into the microphone on your iPhone or swipe with your iPad/iPod Touch. Watch the balloon inflate and then give your phone a shake to start constructing your Balloonimal. With each shake, your animal takes greater shape until... Voila! Your Balloonimal appears and is ready to play. Pet your Balloonimal to see what tricks it can do. An entire collection of balloon animals, including a fish, T-Rex, and snails - 11 Balloonimals in all. See them jump, dance, swim, roar and pop!
- Kid-approved by our rambunctious team of tiny beta testers
- Ranks high on the Giggle Scale
- Built to be imagination-boosting and exploration-encouraging
- No wrong way to play
