[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.

YouTube Kids v3 introduces profiles for kids and brings updated artwork [APK Download]

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

Keeping young kids entertained is a full-time job and sometimes the only solution is to give them something to watch.  If you have more than one kid, especially at different ages, that gets much harder to do because video content changes quite a bit as they grow up. The latest update to YouTube Kids is making this a little more management with a brand new system for kid profiles. Once set up, all kids have to do is switch to their own profile and they'll immediately get recommendations appropriate to their age.

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Google Assistant is more than a way to control your lights or find out how many miles are in a league (it's 3.45 miles). There are also some neat little games and bots with which to interact. Today, Google has rolled out more than 50 new games and activities for families with kids. Maybe just kids at heart, too.

The new commands are live in Assistant right now on Google Home and on phones.

Disney merges its TV apps into ‘DisneyNOW’

Sunday, October 1st, 2017

In the past, Disney has had one app for each of its TV networks - Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney XD. That means three apps you have to manage, and (at least) three times you have enter your cable credentials to get access to all available content. Now the company is consolidating all three into the new 'DisneyNOW' app.

There isn't much in the way of functional improvements compared to the existing applications.

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.

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'.

YouTube doesn't talk very much about what it has to offer for younger audiences, but through its Kids app, parents have easy access to a great library of child-friendly material. Not long ago, the app introduced a "reading" category built around the theme of books and literary characters. Regular updates to the app are also occasionally introducing new features. The latest update includes a few hints about some improvements that may be coming soon, including more control over offline videos and profiles for easily swapping content for different kids.
