I love it! A few suggestions...

Kudos is an inspiring, fun, and safe app with amazing and kind people on it. I can’t have Instagram so I have Kudos instead. I love how you can send cute little reactions on a picture. It’s a safe app because moderators will delete anything that’s inappropriate. You also have a choice to not allow certain comments to post on your picture/video as well as decline friend requests.

Suggestions: You should add DMs to Kudos so that kids can have private (but safe) conversations. I think this would be a great update.
Also, you can only post a pic/vid to one group, instead of several, which can be annoying sometimes. If you could fix that, that would be awesome!

I am a little concerned though as lately I have been seeing people that look like adults on Kudos as well as older teenagers. One posted an inappropriate comment on my picture and someone else’s picture. We both declined, but I am still concerned. They should just use Instagram. This app is for kids. Kudos might become unsafe if adult and teens start coming to use a kids app instead of Instagram. Please try to make a way that doesn’t let older people come on to Kudos!

Overall, I think Kudos is a great app! I love it a lot! 👍🏻

It’s ok

Kudos is a great app that allows kids to have social media in a safe environment. But I think it’s to babyish. I’m about to be 12 and my parents won’t let me have social media. I think that you should not have reactions and have a 👍 or ♥️ so when people double tap on the picture they have liked that picture. Also another thing I know no one has asked for is stories so that some pic or videos is not permanently on there profile. And filters for the stories . And last of the main things is DM so that people (kids) could share pics, videos, and messages with each other because not everyone knows each other and they might want to invite one person to a party or something and wouldn’t want to make the other one feel bad . And also I think that approving comments is really babyish . Finally anywhere I am even if I have really good service with all the bars of WiFi it still says poor connection and I’m not able to see the feed😊 most of my friends have insta and they don’t want to get this app because it’s too babyish so is you did these things you would get more people to sign up and this is really the last thing I just want to give you a suggestion that not to put bubble letters and stuff put them regular .

Thanks again- Leilani 😊

So it’s a good app and all but approving the comments seems a little much. Let us write what we want. I get u want to decrease the chance of bullying. But kids can always deleted comments or reported them. No one I no uses the app. I’m 12 and my mom won’t let me have instagram. Sending a email ever time I post something is really annoying. I don’t have anything to hide on the app. But I don’t really like the idea of my parents being able to see everything I post. And it’s annoying getting a bunch of emails when u do a bunch of shout outs in a row. Last having ur parents approve ur account kinda annoying. Sometimes ur parents might be out or busy with other stuff. U could make it so only a certain age group has to do the emailing stuff. So all in all. It’s a good app but a babyish if u want something like instagram or other social media. So if u are someone who’s parents won’t let u have instagram this is probably not the best replacer app. Kudos I think of u made some changes making less babyish and more like other social media u would have a lot more kids signing up for it.
