Mind mapping made easy!

This is an excellent app to start with your children the concept of mind mapping for taking notes and studying for quizzes/tests. You can easily start organizing information adding "popples" in which students can write, add pictures and select different colors. It´s a fun app!

Is It Any Good?

This productivity app has many uses, in business, personal planning and management, and education. It's fascinating and really easy to use. Kids may be drawn to the visual pop the Popplets have, especially when they add images and video and utilize the social aspects of sharing and collaborating in real time. However, the content kids create and share is wide-open -- so Popplet is technology, similar to texting and social media, that parents may want to keep a watchful eye on.

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.
