The fantastic selection of photo filters and fun features surpass those of other similar apps, but the default settings aren't great for teens. The Korean-based app rivals Snapchat with more selfie features and similar options, such as self-destructing messages. The social network aspect lags, though, simply from not having as many users. However, since teens can connect via Facebook or Line accounts, that may change very quickly. The biggest concern for teens is that the default setting is to receive messages from everyone using the app instead of just friends. It will also add friends from any linked accounts by default, which means that the app automatically adds Facebook "friends" whom kids might not know well if those people are also using the app. If teens go through the settings, add contacts by manually adding usernames, and adjust the default settings, then SNOW - Selfie, Motion sticker, Fun camera is another OK contender as a social app with lots of fun features.

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.
