It’s not uncommon to see kids playing with tablets and smartphones these days. Heck, some kids I know even have their own laptops and watch videos galore at their leisure. As parents well know, a laptop, tablet, or other device is a great babysitter and an even better way to entertain a child while embarking on a long trip. The problem is that letting your kid pick and choose any video he pleases isn’t always the best course of action.
More often than not, popular movies are adult movies and kids shouldn’t be watching movies that have all kinds of adult content. But how can you monitor what you kids watch and still make dinner, fold the laundry, drive, or complete any other task? Well, you can make sure that your kids are restricted to appropriate movies if you download and set up the new Kids Movies iOS app (coming to other platforms soon).
The Kids Movies App
The Kids Movies app is available for download from the Apple App Store right now. While the $3.99 price tag is a bit more than most people want to spend on an app, this might be one app worth a higher price. Kids Movies allows your kids to choose from kid-appropriate movies (as the name of the app suggests). More than 200 movies have been entered into the Kids Movies database and all of these movies are parent approved. What’s more, Kids Movies has separated each of these great kid flicks into different categories complete with colorful icons.
For example, if your child wants to watch a movie about a bear, the large and colorful “bear” icon can be tapped. Once tapped, any movies that are about a bear, bears, or anything to do with a bear will pop up. Many different categories are included in the Kids Movies app and choosing the right category is really quite simple. So simple, in fact, a kid could choose a category quickly and simply – wait, that’s the point of this app, isn’t it?
A Great App to Consider
While there are some other ways to restrict the type of content your kids access, Kids Movies seems like a really great idea. When you launch this app and tell your children to choose movies that are listed in the Kids Movies database, you will have peace of mind and you won’t have to worry about your child tapping into a violent movie. So, really, that $3.99 price tag isn’t such a big expensive after all, is it? If your kids watch movies a lot and use your tablet, smartphone, or other iOS device frequently, Kids Movies is easily one of the top ten apps that you should download.
Sure, making sure that your child’s time is occupied with a classic movie or some other form of entertainment is convenient, but making sure that your kids only have access to child-friendly movies is a better plan. Need a way to keep your kids entertained? Check out the App Store right now to download Kids Movies – you won’t regret this purchase!
