Sharing pics with parents, grandparents, and other loved ones doesn't get much simpler than this. For on-the-go families, it's not always easy to keep up with all of the adventures. Not everyone wants to share their exploits on social media sites, and group texts or picture-sharing sites don't have the same accessibility and curation for a whole group. The blinx app provides another option by allowing kids to share their special moments -- with voice commentary -- with their favorite people all at once in a private and secure way. Although the app is relatively easy to use, there's a lot of jargon (blix, blinxbooks, in-crowd, gems) that make it more challenging for some to dive into. Updating the in-crowd isn't entirely intuitive, either. A better overview would be nice for those who are just getting started. But once you figure it out, it's quick to add a picture here and there throughout your day.

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.
