Mostly SFW videos aren’t always high-quality -- or for kids.

This app features videos on topics ranging from fitness to dog training and making a peach cobbler, but its content isn't the best or safest for younger users. Unlike its website counterpart, OFTV doesn't have nudity, ads, or subscription costs. In addition to a series called Unlocked, which involves interviews with personalities, the app contains videos from other content creators.Its interface is fairly simple -- some videos are highlighted on the homepage, and users can enter keywords to search for viewing selections. The content quality, though, can vary, with inconsistent sound that can be either distracting or make conversations hard to hear. Some hosts also seem more prepared and comfortable in front of the camera than others, and although a number offer advice on various topics, they aren't always identified as subject matter experts. Viewers may not find all the guidance that's provided useful. In the Wellness Wednesday series, for example, two recent episodes stress how helpful it is to be organized. Some videos include different camera angles and other visual edits, such as switching to black and white and zooming closer to an interviewer's face to indicate she's shocked, while others are less dynamic.

Unlike, the app doesn't feature nudity, but not all videos are completely kid-friendly. Conversations sometimes steer toward adult subjects. In an interview with social media personality and former porn actress Mia Khalifa, for instance, she talks about the last time she was intoxicated and tells the interviewer she'd rather smoke marijuana than drink alcohol. A Coffee and Cleavage series involves two women discussing topics like dating and ways a man can tell if a woman isn't into him -- while wearing low-cut tops. In one video, which they refer to as their f*** it episode, the hosts play Never Have I Ever and respond to a series of questions about their sexual experiences. In another video, a DJ spins music in her underwear -- and a different creator shares footage in a video from a prank that involved covering his genitalia with a can of chips to surprise his girlfriend when she reaches into it. The app also seems to have some design issues. It's possible to get stuck on a page where the home and back buttons are situated directly on top of each other, making returning to the homepage or previous screen difficult, and the app can randomly crash, requiring you to reopen it. According to a press release, as of August 2021, about 800 videos were available in the app. Its official launch was fairly recent, so some of the functionality kinks may eventually be worked out. But to ensure kids are consistently interested in its content and parents are OK with them viewing it, OFTV may benefit from adding more youth-specific videos -- and veering away from some of its predominantly sex-oriented programming.

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.
