Not long after cable TV took the American household by storm, parents started to worry about what their children were able to access. Companies scrambled to create solutions that would prohibit kids from accessing entertainment deemed too mature for them, and so that fire was put out. Then the Internet came along and similar, if not worse problem occurred, and providers had to develop ways to keep underage kids out of forbidden zones. Now a new age is upon us: the age of the smartphone and tablet. Families are facing the same predicament they have since the eighties, just on a different platform.
Children, particularly quite young ones who presumably have no intentions of stumbling on to something risqué or violent, are being exposed to apps meant for individuals far beyond their years. But fear not, Mom and Dad — now, there's an app for that. It's called KIDO'Z, and it aims to safeguard your mobile device from the R-rated boogie monsters of the worldwide web so that your little ones can use it strictly as you intend.
KIDO'Z , which supports both online and offline modes, comes with its own ready-made set of educational programs and games for kids that are guaranteed to be age-safe. The content of its library can be customized based upon one's child's interests and level of education, and parents have the ability to pick and choose what they want. When the KIDO'Z app is activated, children can still access their selections on Google Play. KIDO’Z sports a password-protected area designed for parents so that they can manage and customize what their children are up to when it comes to playtime on the mobile device. Parents can also limit children's usage of KIDO'Z features by setting a time limit within the app.
