Ratings and Reviews
Easy and Fun!
This app is simple to use and lots of fun. The quality may not be top notch but I can make a 12 step instruction video in 5 minutes for my students. Love it!
In Flickr Creative Common Surprise
Luckily I tested this link at home before I showed my students. When I searched within the app on Flicker Creative Commons for Justin Bieber I had a shocking result. I truly hope that the filtering system on this app are remedied very quickly as children should not be exposed to such rude images.
The app itself is very good. Just fix this please!
