Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

CLEARUPTHINGS HD is a wonderful idea that is unfortunately marred by poor English localization. The drag-and-drop controls are easy to use, and the graphics are clear and attractive, but the text is too iffy to recommend as an educational app. Kids will scratch their heads at commands like "The spots things go here and the lattice things go here," or "The striped things go here and the asteroid things go here," ("asteroids" meaning objects with stars on them).

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
