Toddler time-killer is free, but mediocre and ad-heavy.

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Simple main page lets kids choose the category of animal they want to view and hear. Back and forward arrows inside each category allow kids to repeat the same animal or move forward to view new ones. If kids accidentally tap an ad it will probably be frustrating to get back to the main screen.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Ads, for products and services like ESPN, deodorant, and voice changers show up in the corner of each animal page. There's also an ad for another app from the developer called Kids Animal ABC. Certain features -- such as child lock, using a star to note favorite animal pages, and viewing the insect category -- require the purchase of a $5.99 app upgrade.

Is it any good?

KID ZOO ANIMAL: SOUNDS AND PHOTOS is a basic app for preschoolers and toddlers that may kill some time in the grocery line. The photos here are definitely not top quality, just average. Many of the desirable features that would turn this app from mediocre to good -- a child lock, the star feature to remember favorites, more categories, and setting an animal sound as a ringtone -- require purchasing a $5.99 app upgrade, which is not available on all devices. Your child can access all photos on your phone from the main page of this app.
