Kids can learn facts including how each planet got its name, what the terrain is like, its number of moons, and so on with ILEARN SOLAR SYSTEM HD. However, the app's production values aren't up to par with some other similarly priced educational apps. The interface could use some work. (Users might be confused, for example, about why they have to press a separate button to make push-pins appear on the planets before they can be tapped on). The narrator speaks with a stilted diction that is distracting, and there are some awkward sentences along with outright errors, like "Sun is one of the many many stars in space, is a huge glowing ball of gas." With so many other educational apps out there with more polish, it's probably best to give this one a pass.

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.
