For some strange reason – probably because I’m a geek and a safety nut – I really wanted to try this app. And I wanted to like it. In retrospect, I’m not entirely sure what I expected an app full of safety signs to do. I’m not sure I am any farther ahead with that question now that I’ve actually tried it.




There are some benefits to this app. First of all, and most importantly, it’s free. Secondly, a couple of the signs in the “other” category presented some mild amusement, such as the ‘Warning: Falling Penguins’ one.

Overall though, I’m not entirely sure what this app is intended to do. It may be useful for studying for a driving test, or a WHMIS or HAZMAT test, but I think the developer would find a better audience by categorizing the app as Education, instead of Entertainment.
