    "I want to keep current with the skills needed in my workplace and also wanted to work on my soft skills to make better progress at work. I found Udemy very helpful. With a vast range of course available which are good on my pocket, I can invest my time at my convenience to progress in my career."

      "When I was in school, science was always boring, a lot of memorization and you rarely got to experience what the different elements would do. I thought part of this app was good with its cartoons that kids would like to create different elements, but it wasn't so goofy that adults wouldn't like it. On the other side, it limited the elements you could create, it also didn't name the elements so it really lost a large learning potential. I found this app would be good used in conjunction with other materials, but I didn't think it was very good as a standalone teaching aid."

      "Toca Lab is a great series for young children to learn about science. STEM education is always in demand, and apps like these are a great way for our kids to get ahead in school - or to receive supplementary tutoring in a fun and inviting way. My daughter struggled in science class, and I found the way the public school taught science was something she just found very dense and confusing and discouraging. With apps in this series, she actively engages in the learning and shows understanding and the ability to apply knowledge. A lifesaver!"

      "I downloaded this thinking it said "Taco Builders" and expected something involving food. Instead, I found a very useful tool to help teach my kids. They love creating their own world, it really inspired them! In fact, they might even love it too much. They've started skipping meals and school to build new worlds, but as long as they're learning it's alright with me!"

      "My kids hated this. They didn't get why they had to keep balancing equations and said they'd rather just do their homework assignments. I don't know; it looked pretty neat to me. I wish I'd of had something like it as a kid. Maybe mine are just weird? Little rotten apples didn't fall far from the tree, then, which makes it so weird they didn't love this."

      "Learning can be fun! This app helps parents encourage their kids to learn about mathematics and algebra. DragonBox Algebra makes algebra more approachable as you play a game, the fun game is designed for students as young as five, but really anyone can benefit and it goes at your pace."

      "if you want your child to be absorbed this game will do that to them for hours. I have even seen adults and groups of grownups at gatherings playing this game. So yea this is a great game for both kids and adults. I have it on my phone but have not given it to my 1 year old to play with yet since he drops things i dont want him to break my phone."

      "The graphics for this app are truly beautiful and so diverse. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this one, and your kids will have so much fun creating over and over again. It's a wonderful app just to have fun with, and it would be great for boys and girls (and adults)."
