Google splits Family Link into separate apps for parents and children/teens [APK Download]

Friday, September 21st, 2018

Google has split Family Link into two applications. Previously, the parental control service was offered in a single app which was installed on the devices of parents and children alike. The existing listing has now become Family Link for parents and a second app, Family Link for children and teens, has been introduced. After installing the latter on a child's device, parents can control it directly from their dedicated app.

Previously, Family Link was designed for children under 13-years-old.

New YouTube Kids tools go live, with parent-approved and ‘Older’ content level settings [APK Download]

Friday, September 14th, 2018

Back in April, Google announced that it was readying new features for the YouTube kids app to give parents greater control over the content their children are able to access. The ability to carefully select every channel and video available on the account is now going live, as well as a new experience for 'Older' kids.

There are now three different content level settings. 'Younger' is the default level users have been getting up to now, 'Older' is a new level for children aged between 8 and 12, and 'Approved content only' enables strict parental curation of everything that can be accessed.

[Hands-on] Facebook Messenger Kids comes to Amazon’s Fire tablets

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

Facebook has released its new Messenger Kids app to the Amazon App Store, making the service available to owners of its Fire line of tablets. So I grabbed one of the Fire 7 tablets we have for our kids and installed the app to see what it was all about, and just how well it works on Amazon's lowest-end hardware.

Because here's the thing: These tablets are slow. Really, really slow.

Amazon launches accounts for teenagers, with approval control for parents

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

If you've got teenage children I can imagine its difficult to get the right balance between allowing them the freedom to develop into responsible adults and watching their every move so they don't mess up. I don't have children myself but I was one once, so I guess I have some idea what it's like. Amazon knows this, too, and so it's launching a new feature that gives teenagers a bit more freedom when it comes to shopping.

Google’s Family Link parental control app is now available to everyone (in the US)

Friday, September 29th, 2017

Back in March, Google announced an interesting new app allowing parents to set up accounts on Android devices for kids under 13. Unlike setting them up with a standard account, Family Link gives you power over what they can do with their phone or tablet. The app was available as part of an invitation-only test in the US, but now it's getting a widespread public launch.

We did a hands-on with the app around the time it was first announced, and we were impressed with what we saw.

Build, code, and play with the LEGO Boost companion app for Android

Monday, July 24th, 2017

LEGO must be one of the most ubiquitous toys in the world. It's hard to imagine growing up without it. Somehow, the company has managed to remain relevant all these years, finding new ways to engage with kids as the world around them changes. One of the most highly anticipated LEGO releases for some time is the Boost Creative Toolbox, which tasks you with building a robot named Vernie, among others, and programming them to perform certain actions using "drag-n'-drop coding'.

Sony’s KOOV wants to teach your kids programming through robotics… via an Indiegogo campaign

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Yesterday Sony Global Education launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding project for its newest educational initiative. Meet KOOV a programming and robotics kit for children. Think Legos meets robots (which is already a thing) but with better software and simpler hardware. With these tools, your kids can pick up programming fundamentals at a much earlier age. Perhaps little Suzy might be the next Wozniak or Stallman. Probably with less facial hair, though. 

KOOV has some great things going for it.
