The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn to do some basic photo editing, including applying filters, resizing photos, and adding embellishments. They can practice descriptive, concise writing by adding text or captions to the photos. The app could be a great digital journaling tool for kids to create text and image memory books. Kids can use Typic Kids to practice photo editing and writing, and it's a creative tool for sharing memories.

Ease of Play

Each step is really easy, and kids will have no problem embellishing their photos.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Several options for frames and stickers are available for free. An in-app purchase of $1.99 unlocks all the stickers and frames and removes the Typic logo from saved photos.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Typic Kids - Fun Photo Editor is remarkably easy to use to embellish photos with kid-friendly fonts, stickers, and frames. And it's also really easy to share those photos on any social media accounts installed on the tablet. Before sharing, kids do see a message that says "Parents Only" that requires solving a simple, one-digit multiplication problem, but most kids interested in photo editing would be able to answer that on their own and could end up sharing their photo creations on their parent's social media accounts.

What's it about?

With TYPIC KIDS - FUN PHOTO EDITOR, kids can resize photos they take in-app or pull from the camera roll; apply filters; add text, stickers, and frames; and then share their photos by email or social media or save them to their camera rolls. Photos created with the free version will have the Typic watermark on them; you can remove it with an in-app purchase. The free version includes a few frames and stickers; an in-app purchase unlocks dozens more.

Is it any good?

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.
