Alternative Apps
How does the web app look and feel to use?

As the application is aimed at children it has a very childish feel about it. From an adults point of view you will probably prefer many other sites that are easier on the eye. However it does what it does very well, and children will love it. There are a lot of cartoon characters and it’s very bright. Using Girl Ambition is very easy, and your daughter won’t have any problem at all.

How does the registration process work?

Registering for an account is quite easy, but you will first need to choose the payment plan that you want to sign up to. There are three options, paying every month, paying once a year or a free trial. If you just want to see what it can do then you can try it out for 30 days for free. The registration form is longer than normal as you are creating a parents account as well as your child’s account. Creating a password is very annoying as it has to be very long, also the registration process can get very annoying, if you enter different passwords then you have to wait for what seems like a lifetime for a popup to appear to tell you the problem. It also takes a long time for the password strength indicators to change. Interestingly you are not asked for your date of birth, and there doesn’t seem to be any way of ensuring that only young girls are signing up. This could still lead to bullying and danger.

What does it cost to use the application?

There is a free trial for the website which will last for 30 days, however after this you will have to pay for a membership if you want to continue using it. This will cost $4.99 per month, or $49.90 per year.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Girl Ambition is a fairly useful social networking site for young girls; it is quite a nice feature how parents are allowed to make sure that they are using the site properly and carefully. It’s also much safer than letting them use adult social networking sites.
