Does not have high or low anymore

For a while there the app was not working and now it doesn't have the high or low anymore I hope you can fix all of the problems with it so I can begin to use it again
age 5+

My son enjoyed the app but only played for 2 minutes before going to something else.

Not sure what could be enhanced but overall it is a good learning experience for children.

iDress for Weather is an excellent and easy tool that helps kids understand weather and how to best prepare for it. Adults will want to do the initial set-up, but since the app relies on pictures rather than words, it's fully accessible to kids of any age, ability, or language.

The customizable features set this app apart from others. Everyone experiences temperature differently, so iDress for Weather allows color-coded settings for specific temperature ranges. A familiar jacket or scarf can be comforting to a child, so upload pictures of your kid's favorite clothes to help ease the angst of getting out the door. Kids can learn to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius intuitively, with the help of pictures, rather than grappling with a clumsy formula. iDress for Weather may seem simple at first, but this gem can let kids of any age and ability gain independence with essential information to help them set forth on their day.

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.
