Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
This utility offers a solution for kids and adults to include commonly used phrases in texting, making it easier for kids to communicate. Adding the phrases to the app is fairly easy, but it can be difficult at first to locate them within the keyboard for use. In the beginning, it takes some trial and error to figure out how to launch the customized phrases within the keyboard. Parents may want to monitor the kinds of information teens upload into the app and note that, even though Phraseboard Keyboard is a nifty shortcut, people still shouldn't text and drive. Users should be aware that while there are some great benefits to this app, developers can have access to personal information when full access to the keyboard is allowed in settings.

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.
