A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

It is very clear how to interact with the storybook, and the few minigames are very straightforward. You can tap the "i" button to pause the story or to go back to the menu, but it's hard to see on many of the screens.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

The main screen has two separate icons for visiting the publisher's website. One of them also leads you to other apps by the publisher, books to purchase, a newsletter signup page, and the publisher's Facebook and Twitter pages.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Andrew Answers is a clever storybook app with minigames between scenes. The story's premise is that Andrew is smarter than the adults around him. The grownups ask him to say a word that starts with a particular letter, and he'll answer with a word that is both contrary and that starts with the requested letter. Kids can page through the scenes in the story, which is both read aloud and has the words on the screen. The first scene also has hidden surprises, such as the ability to tap the teacher's apple to take a bite out of it. The minigames between scenes have easy and hard levels, or they can be skipped altogether.

Andrew Answers is Awesome!

A great story with fun artwork, sounds and animation. The minigames are fun, and not too hard.

Is it any good?

ANDREW ANSWERS is completely original content, created for this digital platform. The story is very clever, and the pages have movement, like a cross between a storybook and animation. It is written by seasoned children's book author Alan Katz. The story isn't long, however, and there are only two minigames. The minigames are pretty easy, except for the device tilting action, which isn't very smooth.
