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.

Fine. Overrated.

Hard to use, not my favorite, some iffy material like songs but not in the app itself. You also have to use money to buy things like premium just to add layers. Use some other app.
