Ratings and Reviews
Must have for kids
Finally. I've been looking for something like this for a long time - why? Because I want my kids to have a reason to grab the iPad for something other than videos - and now they can. I love the way this app presents such curated and well considered content that is totally relevant for my kids - who would have thought that there would be a category of 'current events for kids'? Well done Dogo!!
Dogonews is awesome
This is a beautiful app with great intuitive features and really cool navigation. It's designed as a news app for kids, but the content and stories posted are absolutely appropriate and Interesting to all ages. Each morning I quickly scan through Pulse, Flipboard and other news aggregation sites. Dogonews is now added to that list. Safe for kids, for sure! But perfect for everyone with a curious mind and sense of wonder. You-go...Dogo!
