Is It Any Good?

Most people don't look too much further than the BBQ or pool on July 4, but the REVOLUTIONARY WAR app puts the story of the War of Independence in perspective, offering a mix of informational essays with videos, biographies, and original documents in the form of the Journals of the Constitutional Congress. It's good for kids and a nice refresher for adults who have forgotten their grade-school history. The app is laid out fairly well, but parts of it seem rushed. Freezes and crashes happen occasionally and some of the graphics are more simplistic than they should be. At the time of this review the $4.99 price is about a dollar more expensive than we'd prefer, but as an educational tool, it's first rate.

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.
