Who knew a simple app could be so fun?

This is just like Fruit Ninja,simple and fun at the same time.In this app,you have to keep your hands VERY still and not let the ball crash into a wall (LOL that rhymes.) If you are bored,play this app.It is so much fun.

Keep your balance on this one!

This is a nice app! Just make sure that while playing, keep your eye on the ball! Seriously, you don't want it to touch the yellow areas! And by yellow areas, parents, I don't mean pee-pee spots! Just a heads-up. Get this app! It's really fun!

Is It Any Good?

FINGER BALANCE is one of those games that demonstrates the kind of insanely entertaining activities that can only happen on a touchscreen device like the iPad or iPhone. It's not just balancing a ball on a stick -- it's balancing a ball on a stick with two fingers, which means you have to keep both of your hands in time with one another constantly. And you need to maneuver that stick through a maze that may or may not include moving walls and obstacles. It's so simple, but it's crazy fun. Shaky hands need not apply.

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.
