Is It Any Good?

Dropbox is one of those technology tools that, once you start using it, you can't imagine life without it. The Terms of Service clearly outlines that documents uploaded belong to the account holder and are safe. Teens can save projects or papers to Dropbox and work on them at home (or either home for kids who live in dual-households), at school, or remotely. Parents could also use Dropbox to keep a portfolio of their kids' work.

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.
