App description

This App isn’t a game but is essentially a tool kit of “extras” that may be useful for some students including a magnifying glass, protractor, ruler, compass, mirror and a torch.

Reviewers comments

This app is a collection of tools including a magnifying glass, protractor, ruler, compass, torch and mirror. The torch will only work on devices with a flash. The two tools that the reviewer found useful were the ruler (with the ability to flip between inches and centimetres) and the protractor. The magnifying glass has the potential to be useful but is challenging to use while maintaining focus on the objects.

The App does have banner advertisements at the bottom. During user testing of the home page these were on home page (where you select your tool) rather than in the App itself.

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.
