Is It Any Good?

EZ Tunes is a good idea. Kids with special needs, including autism, will benefit from the simple selection system (as will people who hate jumping back and forth through the iOS play option pages). Unfortunately, it has some fatal flaws -- the biggest of which is that the "Stop" button does not appear in iOS 6, so there's no way to stop the music, short of advancing to another album.

That's a fixable bug, but an especially annoying one. The lack of a "back" button is also a bit frustrating, though that's a bit more forgivable, since it could clutter the app's intentionally minimalist design.

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.
