If you’ve used a Kids Discover app before, then you’ll quickly know how the cells version works. All of the Kids Discover apps contain a grid-like contents page that lets you navigate to each section. This makes the app feel more like an interactive book with chapters and a clear direction as to what should be read first.
The cells edition has a high amount of quality content that covers just about every aspect of a cell, from reproduction to a spinning double helix. As you progress through each section, you’ll come across interactive areas that might include a video, animation or a puzzle. What we found however, is that they just don’t feel that engaging and it all looks quite ‘clip-arty’ and old-fashioned.
Even though there is a lot of content in the app, it still needs a bit more polish. It’s almost like the information has been copied and pasted by lots of different people with no real thought as to who it’s for.
