Fewer crashes and glitches working with video would earn more stars for this neat app. Narrating photos has a lot of applications, from sharing a photo album or scrapbook to creative storytelling. In practice, though, the app struggles with incorporating video clips. Also, the ability to upload stories to YouTube raises privacy concerns about what kids might overshare -- read YouTube and Your Kids for tips.

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.
