32 Apps On Your Kids’ Phones You Need To Be Aware Of
There are apps that have been designed for positive use, but people are changing the way they are meant to be used to promote harmful things.

The app is already potentially troublesome in the hands of children because it’s a fast tracker plus social platform which allows you to record how much you fast. That already teaches kids problematic eating habits and tells them they “need” to use an app to manage their diet. The social aspect takes it to more worrying levels because that breeds competition.
