Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that SentenceSpin has a nice educational concept -- teach kids about sentence structure by letting them spin a slot machine-type wheel to formulate random, supposedly funny, three-part sentences. However, the results are often not grammatically correct. For every spin that results in something cute or funny, like "The hungry raccoon pranced in Zimbabwe," users can just as easily get nonsense like, "A flapping towels undid by the movie theatre [sic]."
Is it any good?
SENTENCESPIN's cute concept is entirely ruined by poor execution. Randomly generating silly sentences and then illustrating those weird mini-stories sounds like great fun, and even works out that way when you happen to get a sentence like, "The prickly blowfish hid under the covers." But more often you get a sentence that you not only can't illustrate, but which doesn't even make sense, like "Grilled hot dog guessed to the car wash." On its own, the drawing and coloring aspect of the app is an adequate art tool, but nothing more.
