If you liked Bloom, you'll probably like Trope as well. The colors, tones, and overall "vibe" of both apps is basically the same; the difference with Trope is that you're drawing lines on the screen instead of tapping to make circles. With Trope, however, there seems to be less of a connection between what your fingers are doing and what you're actually hearing. In other words, this one is all about the visuals.

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.
