Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the Magic Rocks app is a virtual representation of the old Magic Rocks novelty kits, which allow kids to drop colored rocks into a tank of water and watch them grow into crystalline towers. Parents should be aware that this app lets users post personal photos as the backgrounds for gardens, which can be posted to a central server for anyone in the world (who has the app) to see. Visiting that viewing room will also give you access to the gardens -- and photos -- of other users. We saw nothing objectionable in people's photos, though.
Is it any good?
Watching digital crystals grow on a screen in the MAGIC ROCKS app is just not as cool as it is in real life. While cute at first, this is an app that grows repetitive extremely fast.
