Is It Any Good?

Our review:

SLEWPI takes a page from Brian Eno's Trope by exploring the connections between sound and visual art, but this particular app gives players more control over the final product. Players can select different brush strokes and paint colors (both of which affect the sound produced), adjust the tempo of the loop, and layer multiple loops over top of each other on the fly via a pop-up menu. The more advanced features of this stimulating app will go over younger kids' heads unless an adult is there to help them, but kids who can navigate the menus themselves should enjoy experimenting with different colors and sounds.

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.
