The app involves a fairly simple concept: pick a Democratic presidential candidate, and participate in daily challenges to earn points for the person. Most of the challenges in Full Frontal'$ Totally Unrigged Primary are quiz-type questions on political topics -- asking, for example, how many candidates have qualified for the next debate, although some involve things like math problems or jokes. One, for instance, asks, "Public impeachment hearings have begun. We want to know; on a scale of 1 to 2bil, how tired are you?"

The spelling isn't always exact -- another question uses ppl, instead of people -- which won’t give players' writing skills any kind of boost, and there isn't enough information listed in the candidate bios to help gamers understand each person's platform. (There's essentially no information on candidates from other parties.) Players will also likely need to do external research to figure out some of the references to the political process elements that are mentioned. Aside from the daily challenges, there isn't much to do on the app, but the challenges do provide some information, including the correct answer if you submit an incorrect response. This could potentially be a fun way for politically minded users to test their election know-how. In addition, users who join the app closer to its January endpoint won't miss out, because they can go back and answer challenge questions for days that have passed. Generally, the jokes and political content on Full Frontal'$ Totally Unrigged Primary is probably better suited for teens and other older users than younger kids. But hopefully, if any kids start using the app, it will inspire them to learn more about politics -- and how they feel about what each candidate stands for.

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.
