Is It Any Good?

ICARLY: SAM'S REMOTE'S sound tracks for laughter, disco music, a booing audience, and Sam saying funny comments are cute. Kids will undoubtedly crack up their fellow iCarly fan friends by playing just the right one at the right time in real-life conversations. Sam's usually somewhat endearing sassiness on the show sometimes loses its humor on this app due to lack of context and overkill ("What are you waiting for? Press the buttons!" "This is suckish! Can ya hit the buttons!"). We hope kids will get the joke and understand talking like that in real life will get them more trouble than laughs. Fortunately, there's an option to turn off "random chatter."

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.
