As an African American woman I was grossly disappointed with this app. Except for one or two, every Black woman included in this app was a slave. While escaping slavery is a remarkable feat, it would be great if you included Black women who contributed to American society in over ways: ie doctors, politicians, activists, artists. It’s not super useful. I also wish you took the time to introduce girls to more women who aren’t in the history books. The big names are more likely to be there so why not include predominantly new names? If you don’t already have a Black person on your staff please get one ASAP. This app could be great but it’s severely lacking as it stands.
Asian American herstory still invisible
There are almost no Asian women in this app. What about activists like Grace Lee Boggs or Yuri Kochiyama? Or scientists like Dr. Chien-Shiung Wu? Architects like Maya Lin? Political leaders like Patsy Tokemoto Mink? Or leaders for Asian migrant worker rights Sue Ko Lee or Ai-Jen Poo? How were Asian women impacted by the Page Act and Exclusion Acts? And by Japanese Internment? What are the stories of resistance and fighting back? Focusing on stories of heroism doesn’t always do a good job of understanding the forces that cause invisibility. If this app seeks to make women more visible in history / Herstory, it needs to reconsider how invisibilization happens, and how to tell the stories of resistance without falling into the easy tropes of what a hero / shero looks like.
Amazing But Can’t Share
This app and its idea is absolutely amazing!!! But the thing is, I can’t share it due to some stupid glitch! This really annoys me because I want to add it on my story on Instagram and share it with the world, but whenever I click the button, it makes me leave the app, the even more annoying part, is that I know that I probably I won’t get a response from the app’s developers because and this most likely won’t get fixed for a while.
It’s absolutely gorgeous but so disappointing! I launched it and cannot figure out how to scan! The only option I have is “don’t have a textbook”... but I DO have the History of US series! Including book 5, which I know is the only book used right now. I just don’t know how to get the app to scan, since there’s nothing on the screen to do anything! If I’m doing something wrong, I’d love to here what because I LOVE the idea of this app and it’s illustrations are fantastic! I want it to work! I’m happy to change my review once it works!
The developers have done a fantastic job of creating a tool that helps us imagine women on different points of history. The potrait tracking is awesome and the knowledge shared of each woman is an awesome bonus. I've shown this to everyone I know!
As a teenager, which my opinion won’t matter, I am here to say as a female that this app could be doing more harm that help. Hear me out, the app replaces the male figures presented and replaces them with females. This could just make matters worse in the long run. Yes it is teaching important facts but it could seem as if you are trying yet again to make us seem more superior over men. Now I am just talking about the AR mode.
The app is good for information but most of the curriculum of schools doesn’t focus on women of the past. I believe that children should learn the same amount of women and men history. I like how you can search women and click on them to learn info. The app glitches sometimes but this can be easily fixed with updates for bugs
What a great resource
I used this app sharing Women’s little know contributions to society on three social media accounts that I administer for organizations during #WomensHistoryMonth. I found it easy to use, eye catching, and clever. I have recommended it to friends who teach.
My daughter is 8 and we've been using this app a couple of years. It provides an endless amount of stories during a time when reading is very formative for her.
It is useful and good app
I love this app, covers the abstract as well as the common knowledge. May need improved UI and for an app telling woman's history I would imagine much more Asian stories in all categories.. Good job and improve it..
This is not just a cool app, it’s an important statement! Such a great idea, smoothly executed. Really fun to share with people. Tried with two poitraits, didn’t capture both at the same time, which would be a neat thing to add.
I think its both as interesting for men as it us for women. Some improvements could be done on the news feeds in the app though. Great content and the way u can know story of a woman by scanning a man! Totally in love!
I was reading far frail and the books were very good. Me and my family love to read them. I love to read once every day it really helps me improve with my reading skills
We absolutely LOVE this program.
I downloaded this app for my little sister and she could nearly read when she started but now, she loves it and can read really good!
Fantastic and educational
I bought this app as a teaching tool for for 3 year old grandson. It has helped him tremendously. Now My great granddaughter is benefiting from the same way.
