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.

I had this app for 10 years free app. Now they have removed 90% of their features. Unless you want to pay for this app its basically useless. I would not recommend this app unless you want to pay. It's not a free app. My friends and family that have this app have now deleted it. Some of my friends got the expensive paid version. The app constantly crashes loosing hours of work. This app was fantastic now 0 out of 10. Do not bother with this app. It's just greedy and horrible what they have done to this app.
