The app features fun, kid-friendly animation combined with primary sources from the JFK Library’s archives.

This is the best application I’ve ever used.
This is the best application I’ve ever used. There should be more educational app like this! Congratulations!
Great educational app
This app is obviously designed to educate children and make learning of JFK, Peace Corps & The Space Race more engaging through mini-games, pictures, audio & video clips. The depth and longevity of the app is pretty short. There should of been more information included and maybe an option to watch/listen to some of JKF's speeches. There also lacked more important information and aspects of The Space Race. Overall, it was designed for kids so it was kept simple, and would keep children entertained and would educate them on the basics of what JFK accomplished.
An Entertaining U.S. History Lesson
Oh, "Its all a LIE" reviewer. For starters, it is "It's all a LIE." How do you misspell at all these days, seeing as everything has autocorrect now? Please go back to your basement and wrap your head in aluminum foil again. You're creeping the well-educated out; maybe not the self-educated, like yourself. On a better note, this app is fun and educational. I recommend it. It's an entertaining way to give kids a U.S. History lesson!
