iPhoto seems to have more and more features the more you use it. There are great tools for editing photos and creating presentations, and those features include layers of helpful options. Although some users might prefer to edit photos with a mouse or stylus, iPhoto for iOS is thoughtfully designed to make it easy to make changes and then undo them, if needed. It's easy to import and share images, whether kids choose to work solely on their devices or share their work online or in the cloud.

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.
