Frequently asked questions
How can I use modern technology safely and meaningfully?
Active playful learning is much better than letting kids watch random videos with ads all day long. Edudadoo lets meaningfully engage and connect the virtual world with the real world. What exactly does it mean to use technology meaningfully? Watch the video above!
In short: Technology is used meaningfully if it facilitates something or enables something otherwise impossible. For example, I can take photos of family members, edit them in a graphics program, print them out, and cut the sheet into cards. But not every parent has time for that five times a week. And paper cards will never speak on their own.
It’s important to play together, show and explain concepts. Especially with young kids. Edudadoo should only be one of many activities. Just as I don't let kids eat heaps of chocolate, I have to set a clear timeframe for activities in front of the screen.
How can I sync or share pictures between different devices?
In the parent section you can use the envelope icon to package an album into a file, which you can send by email, AirDrop, upload to Google Drive, iCloud, post on your web, or do anything else available on your device. In any case, such data will leave Edudadoo and it's entirely upon you to make sure who will have them.
You can easily open these album files in Edudadoo. The app will ask you to pass through the parent section gate and to confirm the new pictures. This will either add a new album or you can merge the new pictures with any of your existing albums. If you already have an album of the same name, the app will offer to merge with it automatically.
Edudadoo does not provide a custom cloud at the moment. Processing of data related to children is burdened by extreme bureaucracy.
Which devices can I play Edudadoo on?
Edudadoo runs on both iOS and Android phones and tablets. For a better experience, consider using tablets.
The minimum supported version for iOS is 11.0, the minimum version for Android is 4.4. Android devices must have an ARM processor (at least ARMv7 with NEON support). Unfortunately, Atom processors are not supported.
Why isn’t Edudadoo free? What’s in the full version?
You can try Edudadoo for free to explore its games, pictures, and even add your own images and sounds! Our website is also full of free tales, coloring pictures, and cut-outs for you to continue the experience at home.
I really don't want ads in an app for kids. But I spend a lot of time and energy working on Edudadoo. By purchasing the full version, you will unlock all the original images and can add unlimited ones of your own – everything for just $7.99!
Can I pay for the full version by bank transfer?
Unfortunately, no. Apple and Google prohibit this as they deduct 15-30% from payments to keep Edudadoo listed in their stores. Take a look at these payment methods for more info:
How to purchase Edudadoo in Apple School Manager?
Apple School Manager is not in-app purchase friendly, so you can't unlock Edudadoo this way. That's when Edudadoo for Schools comes to play. This version is paid and fully unlocked. Check here how to add Edudadoo for Schools into your Apple School Manager.
Why can’t I take pictures or record audio?
Edudadoo needs your consent to use the camera and microphone in your device. When you try to add your own images, Edudadoo will ask for your permission. Please allow us or follow the link in the app to do so in your device’s system settings.
There is a known issue on some very old Android devices, where the camera does not launch. The bug is in the Unity engine I use to create Edudadoo. It's been reported, confirmed, but not fixed yet.
