A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn about different topics and can submit their own ideas for videos. The videos are very kid-friendly, but the collection is slim.

Ease of Play

The navigation page makes it easy to use all of the features. Some videos are organized into multiple categories, which can be confusing.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

Trailers try to hook users into a paid subscription.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that All the World: Better Learning is an app that houses educational videos for iOS and Android devices. There are a range of topics covered by the videos, and they average about 10 minutes in length. The collection at the time of review is pretty slim, but according to the developers, new videos are added weekly. Kids can watch six videos for free; a paid subscription is required for more. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your kid’s information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

ALL THE WORLD: BETTER LEARNING gives kids access to a collection of videos while providing peace of mind for parents about what kids are watching. A navigation page allows kids to search topics, access all videos, choose a language (English, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin), and learn about the team members who star in the videos. There are parent-gated options for submitting story ideas and viewing subscription details.

Is it any good?

The app offers some charming educational videos that are free from iffy content, but parents may not get a lot of bang for their buck. Receiving a new video each week and submitting original ideas could generate some excitement about learning. However, the videos are pretty short, so kids who enjoy watching them could go through the collection in a matter of days. Also, the quality of the videos doesn't set them significantly apart from other content that's available for free. So, unfortunately, the limited video collection may not engage for very long, sending users to similar, but much more substantial, products. Perhaps after the library of content has grown, there will be more substance.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Talk about ideas to submit to the app's team members and come up with a fun way to present the ideas. What topics do you want to cover? What would be a fun approach?

  • Ask questions or quiz each other about the content of the videos to see what kids learned and remember. Does the content relate to off-screen life in some way?
