Is It Any Good?

As kids begin to use their mobile devices to collect notes and other things to remember, VoiceNote might be a simple solution -- for some. The voice-to-text features are accurate and continuous, allowing kids to speak longer notes without stopping the software. Also, the handwriting feature might be helpful for kids who have trouble with typing. VoiceNote doesn't, however, allow for color-coded notes (they are all yellow), nor does it read aloud the voice-to-text notes, which may take away from the benefits for some. Notes must be saved before they stick to the board on the left, and notes can't be rearranged: They remain in chronological order.

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.
