    "As usual I was snooping around google play and I was looking for something for my kids to make it easier to find good stuff on YouTube. I found YouTube Kids and they love it, as do I. It is a very kid friendly app that has an easy kid friendly GUI.

    "I personally do not think that Pokemon GO is good for young children unless supervised. The security doesnt block out strangers and children could be lured to bad situations. "

    "It's an amusing idea and your cat may or may not respond to the objects on the screen. My son played with the app and tried to get the cat interested, but eventually, he gave up and broke out the more usual cat toys. "

    "CatPaint is a somewhat amusing app if you've got too much time on your hands and want to mess around with photos especially to share on. It has no real use for kids in my opinion though. For adults, it's borderlne, like I'd find something more productive to do with my time, but amusing if you like that kind of thing. For kids, I don't see why you'd even want them playing with this app."

    "An absolutely beautiful game that does a great job of introducing children to both art and abstract geometry. It has challenging puzzles, entrancing music, and a visual style that will leave you speechless. While it is a fantastic game that can really stimulate a child, it won't hold the attention span of younger children. If your child is older or already has the attention span though, it's a great addition to your game archive."
