Sometimes the App crashes after starting. To resolve this issue, restart your device by holding the power button down until 'slide to power off' appears, then slide the slider to power off the device. Press the power button again to turn on the device. You may also want to close some apps you aren't using. With iOS 4.0 and above, most iOS Devices can now multitask, keeping unused apps in the background. Double tap the home button, and you will see a scrolling list of applications that are running in the background on your device. Hold down one of them and you’ll see a red X next to each that will allow you to shut down any of the applications still running. Tap the home button again to close the multitasking bar.
The App crashes on iPad 2. The app has been updated to fix this issue. To receive the update tap on the App Store icon on your iPad. Then tap on Updates at the bottom. Tap on the Update All button on the top right to update all the iPad apps in the list or tap on the 'FREE' button under the Dora's Ballet HD app to update only Dora Ballet HD. If you are asked to login to your iTunes account, do it and the update will begin to download. You can also update using iTunes. Thanks for your patience!
I shut down the game by pressing the home button, but every time I start it back up, it’s in the same spot. Sometimes the game seems to be moving slowly when I come back to it. With iOS 4.0 and above, most iOS Devices now multitask, so when you close the game by pressing the home button, it’s still running in the background. Double tap the home button, and you will see a scrolling list of applications that are running in the background on your device. Hold down one of them and you’ll see a red X next to each that will allow you to shut down any of the applications still running. You can also shut down the app and re-start it if you are experiencing slowdowns.
I am having trouble with the microphone gameplay in the barn scene, what should I do? If you are having trouble progressing through the scene, try to restart the scene from the menu.

Nickelodeon and Budge Studios Partner to Develop iPhone Story Book Apps
Montreal, Canada and New York, N.Y. – Budge Studios and Nickelodeon, the number-one entertainment brand for kids, today announced a partnership to develop and publish interactive story book iPhone and iPad applications based on some of the Nick’s most popular shows, including Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants. Dora the Explorer recently celebrated its landmark 10th anniversary and still ranks as one of the top preschool shows on TV. SpongeBob SquarePants has been the No. 1 animated program among kids ages 2 to 11 for more than seven consecutive years.
The first of several iPhone and iPad apps to be released through the partnership is Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure, which is based on the TV special. The app will feature a fun holiday-themed story, original songs, and interactive mini-games. It will also teach Spanish, colors, reading and the value of sharing. Both the iPhone and iPad versions of the app are scheduled to launch on December 1, 2010.
“Both Nickelodeon and Budge Studios are dedicated to creating family-friendly products that encourage imagination and education in children, so this partnership was a perfect match,” says Noemie Dupuy, a Partner at Budge Studios.
