Playing outside without a device is optimal, but linking the great outdoors and the digital world may lead some kids to appreciate nature in a new way, though the navigation isn't always smooth. Themes all relate to nature, but kids could just as easily use the tools indoors as out, making it more of a creation experience. While a paper-and-pen nature journal is simpler, Nature Cat's Great Outdoors gives kids options they could only have with a device. The interface is easy to use at first, but then it gets iffy, especially when you're moving from one feature to another. Because it starts with lots of selections (about what the current weather's like), kids may go looking for those selection choices again but will be unable to find them. There are also load screens between each selection, and the wait might be just long enough to frustrate some kids. Though the navigation is a bit clunky, kids can do a lot in one app, and it's all for free!

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.
