Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Pocket Penguins is a delightful webcam app that shows a group of African penguins in captivity swimming, interacting, and feeding at the California Academy of Sciences’ penguin observation area. This app is perfect for penguin lovers to watch and observe the little waddlers from three webcams, as well as see a biologist give twice-daily presentations. There’s a mild push for app users to purchase tickets or make a donation.

Pocket Penguins is a Education app that is designed for those 4.  The app has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 and a learning rating of 2 out of 5.

Pocket Penguins is available for Free On The Following Devices:

iPod Touch

Kindle Fire
Nook HD


Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Kids can learn about penguin behavior (within the confines of an aquarium environment) by watching them via the live webcams on Pocket Penguins. Kids can practice their observation skills by viewing the penguins both above and below water. They can also learn some penguin facts if they tune in to watch a California Academy of Sciences biologist make a presentation at the exhibit twice daily (10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. PST). Pocket Penguins is an interesting way to view a live penguin exhibit, but the app doesn’t include much information or interactivity.

The Support Level for Pocket Penguins is about a 2 out of 5.

We’d like to thank C.S.M for providing some of the information on this page.
