Is It Any Good?

IQUE may be a good reminder tool for people who are inundated with information. The app allows users to associate a keyword ("Susie's Mom") with specific information ("Iliana Smith") as a way to create reminders. The app also allows users to attach photos, notes, maps, and websites to the reminders. Users can store information such as the names of their kids' friends' parents, license plate numbers, or the locations of places.

Though the app has a solid video tutorial and user manual, the interface is still a bit clunky. It takes some practice to get used to the navigation and editing tools, and even then, it doesn't quite work as expected. As a tool for storing sensitive information, the app's security isn't convincing. Users can attach encrypted notes to the reminders, which might be used for storing passwords or account numbers; however, it is not recommended that teens store sensitive information on a device that connects to the Internet or could be easily lost or stolen.

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.
