Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Capitalizing on kids' natural fascination with space, this multifaceted tool is full of exploration options, though the augmented-reality feature is a bit glitchy. Also, this title does not provide quite as much interactivity as some of the developer's other apps: When kids are curious, they can’t click objects such as a solar flare to find out what it is, the way you can click on the liver to learn more in the related anatomy app. Augmented reality works comparably in both tools, requiring kids to hold out a card printed out from the website or to use a detailed picture; though it's cool to look at, kids will get more out of the other features.

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.
