Is It Any Good?

Spinlight Studios has created some of the best educational apps mobile devices. AlphaTots and TallyTots let kids work by themselves, but TABLETOTS brings parents more into the mix. This extraordinarily versatile app lets parents put together hundreds, if not thousands, of lessons in everything from letter and number recognition to spelling and math. The only real hiccup is there's no tutorial for putting those lessons together, which generally means some hunting and pecking before you know what to do. There are some good pre-set lessons, which are good starters, but some parents may get frustrated before finding them. There's also no way to save scenarios you've created -- a minor annoyance, but something that's worth correcting.

The app won't know when a child gets an answer right or wrong, either, but there's no getting around that -- and it encourages parents to be actively involved with their children as they learn, something that's hard to complain about.

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.
