Know Before You Load App Reviews

The Know Before You Load App Review Service provides descriptions of the features of apps, highlighting areas which may be of concern to parents.  These reviews have been prepared by qualified child development professionals.

Please remember that:

  • The content of internet-based games can change overnight. ACCM reviews are based on the content of the app at the time the game was reviewed.
  • If you find something in an app that we have reviewed that concerns you, please tell us and we will check and share it with others.
  • As a parent or carer you know your child best and it is up to you to make decisions as to what is appropriate for the children in your care. The information in these reviews is to help you make informed choices about apps that are suitable for children.  (Read our full Disclaimer)

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
