How to make a martini?

Copy and pasted from "what parents need to know" ...which told me enough... "Although the terms of service refer to a set of community guidelines, they were not available at the time of review. The app is meant for adults, and content includes topics like how to make a martini and how to put on a condom. Because the content is user-generated, kids will need to understand that the how-to stories may not be the best or safest approach to completing a task. "

Is It Any Good?

These community-generated, bite-sized learning stories make it easy and fast to learn new skills. The question will be whether Tick. Done. is able to curate enough mini-skills that teens want to learn. The steps in Tick. Done. feel like a series of Instagram stories, which is a familiar mechanic to most teens. While the content isn't particularly kid-friendly, there's not much iffy stuff and some cool things to check out. Upon opening the app, some of the featured content includes "Homemade sushi," and "How to make your own oat milk." Because of the clean interface, making a how-to story is simple, without a lot of bells and whistles to weigh things down. Also, it doesn't have the quagmire of YouTube's recommended videos to worry parents, though there's a lot less content to explore. Since it's unclear how the content is moderated, it's a good idea for parents to keep their eyes on what their teen is viewing. Ultimately, it could be a cool way for older kids to enjoy sharing their favorite skills and seeing what others have to share.

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.
