Is It Any Good?

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

This is a pretty good tool for helping kids interview family members for school projects or just for fun. The long list of questions helps show kids that there's a lot to learn about their families; with parent help, the list can inspire kids to use their imaginations and creativity to develop their own questions. The audio editing tool is a bit confusing and limited, which makes the professional production look appealing -- just make sure that uploading and ordering the audio documentary is a deliberate choice. Otherwise, users can enjoy the ability to save and share recordings on iTunes.

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.
