Is It Any Good?

For those days when you want less negativity in your life, it's helpful to have an option to tune out the worst comments so that you can focus on the more positive/helpful remarks. Tune steps up to the plate in that regard, filtering out comments or entire threads that are harassing, vulgar, or profane based on your own comfort level. The Tune volume dial is easy to use, but it's not entirely clear what's blocked out at any given level. It may require some playing around to figure out what works best. Because it's experimental and language is both subjective and up to interpretation, Tune isn't a guarantee that nothing inappropriate will sneak through to kids. It also doesn't restrict other behaviors, like sharing phone numbers and addresses. Ultimately, Tune is a useful tool, but it's best for making your day a little bit brighter. It's just not designed or reliable as a parental control.

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.
