Great curated content, parent controls; flawed navigation.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
With so many different apps available, kids can learn a range of things from reading to early math skills to gears. If parents employ time limits, kids can also start to think about managing their media consumption and how to choose wisely to make the best use of their time. As always, playing or watching with your kid offers the most educational value.
Ease of Play
Creating profiles and setting them up is simple enough. Navigating between apps is tricky. They all seem to behave differently with no seamless way to move back and forth.

What’s It About?
KIDOMI is all about creating a one-stop shop for kids' apps on an Android device. With one subscription fee, kids have access to popular, high-quality kids' apps without having to purchase all of them separately. Parents can create a profile for each child with favorite apps, age-appropriate suggestions, and time limits. Parents can also see what each child has been doing and add their own apps that are installed on the device but not part of the subscription. The apps for kids include imaginative play, books, math, engineering/science, and creativity.
Is It Any Good?
This collection of apps is top-notch, and parental controls are a great addition, but navigation between apps may not be intuitive for some kids. Kidomi allows parents to gain access to a collection of some of the best apps out there for young kids in one interface and for one monthly fee. For parents who are overwhelmed by trying to figure out which apps to buy, this alone may be worth the subscription. The parental controls and statistics for viewing are icing on the cake. But that assumes that you're already paying at least the cost of the subscription fee each month in apps and that you're willing to accept that once the subscription is done, you'll have no apps to show for it, a little like a Netflix for apps. It would be nice to have some sort of common navigation button present to allow kids to get back to the Kidomi menu easily, but the back button is what they need to use. Other than that, Kidomi will be a great option for a lot of busy families.

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.
