Is It Any Good?

Color Uncovered is like the science textbook of the future, packing in plenty of information, but doing it in a way that is fun and engaging. The app works like a book that has interactive elements only when they illustrate the point, keeping the focus on the information. Kids who are used to playing games on their iPads may be bored, but for those interested in colors, the eye, and how the mind works, this is a wonderful introduction. If there is one complaint, it's that the app feels too short. This freebie is a great addition to your app library.

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.
