1 The activity in Spanish is named "Hablar con Sara" -that's what appears on the icon and means Speak with Sara. Sara is a female name. However the Robot's name is Alice (just ask *him* ...), and he has a male voice... It would be nice if all this is consistent...
2 When the Chat activity is started, it reminds you that you should share the activity with whoever you want to chat with. The chat tab on Speak however, doesn't. For consistency it should.
3 Children know all about Robots as mechanical creatures, but have no notions about "bots". So when I press the robot tab...
Expectation: A two-legged robot will show up on the screen!
Reality: Not so...
However... I don't have a better suggestion unless multi-word tab names are used (change voice, change face, chat with Alice, chat with friend)
4 When the language of the user interface is changed from English to Spanish, Alice reads Spanish questions in English phonetics, until one notices that and changes Alice's language
