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!

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!
