It is a great way to store inforamtion

MrOwl is a great was to store information on something you are interested in. When My child wanted to learn HTML, we found some sites and stuck them in a branch and he was able to learn it!

Is It Any Good?

A social networking app based on and sorted by user interests is a promising idea, but it may take some time to reach full potential. At the time of this review, MrOwl: Inspire & Collaborate is relatively new and doesn't have a whole lot of depth. It feels more like a marketing tool than a user-curated information sharing experience. The developer indicates that it will get "wiser as more people use it." If that's what happens, it could become an excellent place for teens and adults to discover more about their personal interests, meet people who share them, and organize links, photos, reviews, and more. If it doesn't reach a critical mass of engaged users posting meaningful content, this app could be just another social media platform mostly for marketing.

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.
