Get kids exploring outdoors with this free photo app from PBS KIDS! Plum’s Photo Hunt is part of PLUM LANDING, an environmental science media property designed to get kids excited about exploring the wonders of our planet.
In this app, Plum, an alien from the Planet Blorb, sends kids on missions outdoors to photograph awesome things that they find in nature like the weather, plants, shadows and bugs.
• *New Update Feature!* Save pictures to a Field Journal for kids to share with family and friends.
• Take photos that include Plum and her Earthling friends Brad, Clem, Gabi, Cooper and Oliver.
• Send pictures to Plum on the PLUM LANDING website: pbskids.org/plumlanding. A gallery of select photos will be published to the site weekly.
Plum’s Photo Hunt is based on the PBS KIDS web-original PLUM LANDING, developed by WGBH, producers of award-winning kids programs such as ARTHUR, CURIOUS GEORGE and MARTHA SPEAKS. Targeting kids ages 6-9, the app is designed to extend the series’ environmental science curriculum. WGBH worked closely with teachers and advisors to develop Plum’s Photo Hunt.

Ratings and Reviews
Please fix the crashing.... Please. Great idea for the app and my son and I would love to use it. But we can't do anything on the app Bc it's constantly crashing!
Potential but not good yet
Crashes every time before we can take first photo. Very frustrating to our child... And to me.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
