Dedicated YouTube app for kids-Good for parents! (Tutorial)

Postby tutate.com » Tue Mar 10, 2015 2:59 pm

Hi everyone,

We just wanted to share that YouTube has recently launched an app that's dedicated to kids. They have curated specific channels from a list of pretty impressive content providers that are targeted at kids. It also has a child lock so you can set a fixed amount of time that your child can watch YouTube.

More importantly, there are NO ADS! How cool is that? Go check it out on your respective app stores.

Here's a tip for those trying to download the app on iOS. The app is currently only available for download in the USA but there are workarounds. We've crafted a simple tutorial to help those of you who want to use the app in Singapore here:

P.s.: Moderators, I didn't really know where to share this so I chose the forum that was most related. If you need to move it to the relevant section, please go ahead. Thanks!

Good idea but with so many ways to access YouTube, we need to block all access to computers/tablets/smartphones to really limit them.

Find by limiting, kids just want to find ways around it.

I personally don't think limiting the access to the world wide web is a good thing. Times are changing and information is flowing so freely and quickly that anyone who does not have access is at a severe disadvantage. IMHO, of course.

There are ways to restrict access to specific apps on an iPad though. You can check this link out if you're interested :) Hope that helps!

Actually I am pretty sure I have seen a few ads in this app. These were ads of another channels for kids, I believe. But maybe they have been just recently added.
