Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This app combines magnetic poetry with the multiplayer challenge of Scrabble or Words With Friends, with the added element of a semi-public voting audience. With this unconventional approach and smattering of popular and oddball vocabulary, the app has the potential to get teens engaged in thinking about language arts elements like rhythm and meter, even if they don't realize it. Still, the app is mainly entertaining rather than educational, and its entertainment value is entirely at the whims of its sentence writers and voters. With the words provided, users can get creative or get crass, and there's no predicting or controlling which way the app will go.

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.
