A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
I'd Cap That wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.
Ease of Play
Very easy to use. Users just take a photo and a caption appears, or they can choose a photo from the device's camera roll or from Facebook.
Violence & Scariness
A few of the captions make light of violence, in particular, sexual violence. One example: "I'm here for the gangbang."

Sex, Romance & Nudity
The app is full of sexual content, crude humor, and suggestive themes that pop up as captions on the photos users take via the mobile device or access on Facebook. Captions are randomly generated unless users purchase the upgrade for more options. Many captions include sexually derogatory statements about women. Caption examples with sexual content: "I want to be inside of you," another "You know what they say about sluts."

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that I'd Cap That is not for teens. This app contains sexual content, crude humor, and suggestive themes, all of which appear in captions users add to photos. Users have the ability to choose only from randomly generated captions unless they purchase the upgrade for more options. One caption example: "You know what they say about sluts." Some of the more inflammatory captions could potentially get users into trouble for placing inappropriate (some may even be harassing) messages on other people's photos and then posting them on social networking sites or emailing them directly from the app.
Is It Any Good?
I'd Cap That isn't any good. In fact, it could be quite harmful for everyone involved -- both the user of the app and those pictured in the photos.
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.
