Ratings and Reviews

Helpful and fun


I'll be honest--I have no idea how to explain what's going on in the world to my kids. Every day brings another awful news story, and it's overwhelming to keep up just on my own, let alone make sure my kids know what's going on. That's why Clarify is so helpful. It helps my kids understand what they need to know, and they do it in fun and colorful videos (and what kid doesn't love videos?!).

Quick and easy to use and learn


I don't always have the time to read very lengthy articles about current events. I like visuals and I saw Clarify is all videos. Perfect! I can learn about interesting topics in two minutes - it's great! Easy-to-use app and the videos are good.

Not a substitute for parenting but a boost


I came across this app when it started a free trial. I love that the app isn't a substitute for parenting but involves both the parents and kids!
