Like the trend itself, there's nothing much to this app -- except for swiping, some simple physics, and ads. It's not that there's a whole lot to bottle flipping in the first place. Take a plastic water bottle with or without water in it, flip it, hope it lands on its bottom or, if you're really skilled, its top. Count how many consecutive times you can successfully do this without having the bottle land on its side. Yes, it's that basic, but various viral videos up the ante with skilled flippers doing it from skateboards or flipping bottles onto different surfaces. Bottle Flip 2k16 gives you a flat surface and nothing more -- no different types of bottles, surfaces, backgrounds, or any other variables that might make the challenge more interesting. While parents will appreciate the ability to turn off the sound and avoid the bottle-crunching sound that comes with real-life flipping, the lack of a privacy policy or related features make this app not worth the download.

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.
