Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Emotion Detective was designed for kids with autism spectrum disorder or any kids having trouble reading emotions or relating to others. The emotion exercises explore a variety of emotions (angry, happy, sad, or surprised, for example), and some scenes depict situations that may invoke these emotions (a picture suggests two people are arguing and are thus angry). In one exercise, kids use the device’s camera or browse the photo album to take or find a picture of themselves making a face to match a given emotion. Emotion Detective was made in Australia, so it features great Australian accents. But, at $13.99, the app is definitely on the expensive side.

Emotion Detective is a Education app that is designed for those 5.  The app has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 and a learning rating of 3 out of 5.

Emotion Detective is available for $7.99 On The Following Devices:



Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

A variety of activities and approaches to learning emotional awareness keeps kids on their toes. The mystery-solving activities provide tasks kids can easily complete successfully, although they don’t tie in with rest of the activities.

The Support Level for Emotion Detective is about a 3 out of 5.

Not much in-app help is provided in this easy-to-use and very accessible app, although most activities include some discussion prompts. Kids can save their progress mid-game, and they get a certificate when they solve all four mysteries.
