Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

The open-ended nature of this app lets kids set their own pace and discover new techniques to get creative with. Although the focus is on photography techniques, Pixlr Express’ best asset is that it can empower kids to make a personal connection to understanding basic art techniques. Projects can range from basic filters to complex layered works. No matter how kids use this app, they’ll get experience using digital art skills. One note: Although the tools allow kids to be creative, the app would benefit from having tutorials or prompts to help them get started.

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.
