The lenses are fun, but there are just too many other risks involved to make this app worth a download. A flood of professionally created and user-created games for Snapchat offer users tons of add-on options. But most of the content is too mature even for older teens.

The lens games are by far the most interesting feature of the app. Users can choose from a variety of lenses that automatically become filters on Snapchat. Most of the lenses are interactive and can vary depending on user input. They're fun and definitely bring a sense of novelty to already popular Snapchat filters. The platform also lends itself to sharing user-created games, which is empowering. Although Slide Up – Games for Snapchat! has some neat features, the lack of safety measures and concerning user reviews raise red flags. Users seeking to build their Snapchat friend platform will appreciate the #PMOYS. However, many profiles include provocative images, partial or full nudity, personal information, and invitations to engage in communication that may include mature content. In addition, not all user-created games represent quality, both in content and design. In fact, many may open the door to users sharing too much personal information or contributing to bullying. Anonymous responses to user-created questions and polls reduce the sense of online accountability. Slide Up – Games for Snapchat! offers awesome lens games that are sure to capture teens' attention, but it's too much of a mixed bag to make it worth the risks.

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.
