Ratings and Reviews
Great interactive experience
My two kids haven't put this down since I bought it on our family iPad. I'm impressed with the content, but it's the user interface that keeps them engaged. Very interactive.
I'd much rather see my kids using educational apps like this instead of Angry Birds, or some other pointless game.
Looking forward to more topics from Kids Discover in future apps.
I wish I had this app when I was a kid
Okay, so I'm 28, and my friend told me to check out this app. All I can say is wow... I really wish I had these kind of learning materials when I was a kid. It's a truly rich was to learn something new. (I can't lie, I'm a space buff and I even learned a couple new things). I highly suggest this to parents to buy this for their kids.
A sunny day
Interacting with this app makes learning fun for kids and adults. What fun seeing As the World Turns, or what learn about sunbursts not to mention how solar energy is used today. If you want a fun, colorful and a can't wait to swipe to the next page experience, then this app is a must have!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
