A shake-to-scroll tongue twister list, and nothing more.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The app requires you to shake each time you want a new tongue twister. There is no other way to move through the list.
Violence & Scariness
No serious violence, although in one tongue twister, a bear bites a bug that bleeds black blood.

Products & Purchases
On launch, this app creates a pop-up asking the user to download another (free) app from the publisher. The pop-up continues even after the other app is downloaded. There is also a link on each page to the publisher's list of other apps to download.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tongue Twisters! is basically a collection of 40-plus tongue twisters that the user scrolls through by shaking the device. The tongue twisters appear in the same order each time through. The list consists of some familiar twisters (She sells seashells, Fuzzy Wuzzy) and some that will probably be new to users. The content is innocuous. The most shocking twister is one where a bear bites a bug and it bleeds black.

Is It Any Good?
TONGUE TWISTERS! is simply a list of tongue twisters made interactive by forcing the user to shake their device to scroll through. There's no sound, the special effects are basically slideshow transitions, and it's overly commercial. The app does what it's supposed to do, and it's free, but sometimes that's not even enough to make it worth a download.

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.
