Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Popcorn Maker is a surprisingly robust video editor for a web app and its remix tools are fun and unique. The app pulls web content into the "media" layer quickly. Its overall design is very similar to that of other computer-based video editing programs, so the basic technical skills kids develop on Popcorn Maker -- like ordering layers and changing timings -- will transfer to other settings.

Editing video takes a lot of time and patience, and kids will need to root around some to find out how to tweak timings and set up particular events. That said, Popcorn Maker is definitely not the most difficult video editor to use, and it's a great, open and free place to begin teaching kids how to edit and remix responsibly.

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.
