Customer Reviews

Excellent news app for kids!

This is a must have news app for kids My 9 year old gets his news every morning from newsomatic. This news app presents news in a
developmentally appropriate level (you can choose the grade level). It is really helpful to have this resource for parents especially given the amount of news these days that is hard to explain to younger kids.

I am a very discriminating parent when it comes to what apps I will allow on my sons iPad and I can whole heartedly recommend news o matic for its educational value. Plus, kids can post editorial reviews on what they read so it's interactive too. Wish all schools would get this a amazing app!

Incredible app for literacy!

Nothing else gets kids to read like this. I've never seen a tool that actually makes children want to come back every single day to read more and more.

Awesome stories, tons of features, and a variety of reading levels. SO worth the subscription cost!


Amazing way to engage kids in current events. NOM not only publishes new editions daily, so kids are up to date on what’s going on in the world, but it also does it in an interactive way that engages and sparks discussion. NOM makes kids feel as if they are important and what they think matters. Its a wonderful tool to jumpstart a young generation of global citizens.
