Typic Kids Review

Overall, this app was fun to use and very kid friendly. The first time I used it, I was a little confused on what to do, but it did not take long for me to figure out how to use it with ease. It is definitely an app I would recommend to children who want to take their own photos and make them more personal.

Typic Kids is bright, colorful, and mostly kid-friendly. The instructions are written, so it's best for readers, but the step-by-step process is easy to follow. Kids can undo each step, so they can try different effects with no worries. There are a few options for kids to add fun details to their pictures, but access to all the sticker packs and frames requires an in-app purchase.

The sharing options are a concern for a kids' app. Kids interested in the fun themes and stickers are probably not old enough for their own social media accounts, but they're probably old enough to answer a simple multiplication problem to access the parent controls, which would allow them to email the images or share them on the social media accounts installed on the device.

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.
