The app hasn't been updated in quite some time, with the last update allowing you to take a photo of the aquarium to use as your background. Customers have given this one 3.5 out of five stars, and this could likely be much higher if some updates and new content were added. Users aren't impressed with the fact after paying for the app there are still in-app purchases and some have complained about the poor quality of the graphics.
