Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Making and sharing hilarious looped videos couldn't be easier. Though it isn't going to change the world or help people connect with one another on a deeper level, it will likely make them laugh. Making the videos is fun, sharing them is easy, and watching them is entertaining. One downside is that every video is saved to the device's camera roll, and since it's likely to take several shots to get everything just right, you may have lots to delete. As with all photo- and video-sharing platforms, parents will want to talk to teens about what's appropriate to share and with whom.

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.
