Is It Any Good?

The huge selection of podcasts available to browse is both the best and worst thing about this app. Kids should get a kick out of the old-school radio-show style of most audio podcasts; although the format is retro, the content can be very modern. Unfortunately, finding quality podcasts on a particular topic takes some time. Yeah, kids can simply search for a particular word or browse the categories, but they'll come up with a wealth of podcasts -- some that will fit the bill and others that will contain inappropriate or simply low-quality content. However, once kids find some of their favorite podcasts, they'll enjoy downloading and listening to the latest episodes. A handy settings feature allows them to determine how many episodes to have available at a given time, whether to automatically download new episodes, and whether to keep played episodes, which helps control the amount of memory the app uses. Note that without careful management of these settings, kids could quickly find themselves with a large amount of memory taken up on their devices.

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.
