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.

My children love the Seek app

My children ages 7 and 11 love this app are are learning so much. They are running around our yard taking pictures of everything from spiders to moss, mushrooms to birds. Some animals are hard to photograph, but we found out if we identify the animal ourselves, we can save a picture we find online to our account to get the creature counted.

A learning app for all ages

What a fantastic App Seek is! My 8 year old son has it on his iPad and I on my iPhone. If you love the outdoors, nature and natural sciences then you’ll love this App. This App will identify every bird, plant, tree, animal, insect, fungus, reptile and amphibian with around 95% accuracy. It’s great fun, immersive and rewarding as you earn badges and complete challenges as you record each new species as you go. My son and I currently have a competition going on to see who can capture the most species of animal, plant etc... The photos are stored on your photo stream so I can send them to him for him to use on his Seek App! It’s very child friendly and has no issues with storing and sharing your personal data or location. We love this App and have recommended it to most of my friends and family. 5/5 stars!
