Is It Any Good?

Although the graphics are appealing and the ocean sounds drum up some initial excitement, this app is rather shallow in terms of learning and support. The controls for the ROV are confusing, and it’s hard to know which end is up. There’s a meter that displays changes in depth as the ROV moves, but even this is difficult to understand because there’s no reference point. The multiple choice items are a nice learning feature. More of these would be nice to see. The items don't have audio, so they’ll need to be read aloud for non-readers. Instructions, better controls, and a way to track progress could take this app to a much deeper level.

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.
