Turn your Android phone into a kid-friendly phone
Anybody that has kids knows that in today’s mobile driven society that you probably have a mobile device that your child likes to play with. It’s only natural. They see mom and dad playing with it, and you may even download apps for them that are made specifically for children. But what happens when they accidentally delete your other apps or maybe purchases apps unknowingly? Or that have access to the Internet?
These are things that parents think about and also are main reasons parents don’t want their kids playing with their phones. Kytephone is able to change this by locking down your Android device and giving your kids a parent-approved sandbox to play in with access to approved apps, and more.
Kytephone takes an intelligent approach to challenges parents face today. The way it works is once the application loads and the parent signs in, the child is presented with two options: to make a call or use an app. Parents have the choice to give their kids pre-approved contact phone numbers to call, which they will only have access to those number if provided. The other option is parents can pre-approve which apps the child will have access to. The best part is that Kytephone will lock down the app so the child cannot get out of it, not even by restarting the device or using the app switcher.
The app, available on Google Play, also provides additional online tools to make it a breeze to add and remove apps and contacts. It also provides parents with a backend reporting tool to see which contacts were called and which apps were used, and for how long. It also includes GPS location information and reporting to see where the device has been too.
My only question is when will Kytephone be available for iOS?
