Product description

Kids Place is an app launcher with parental controls & child lock. Kids Place prevents children from downloading new apps, making phone calls, texting or performing other actions that can cost you money. It also protects your personal information when kids are using your phone, kindle fire, or tablet by restricting them to apps you approve. Includes convenience features for parents such as auto app restart, useful for small kids who accidentally exit launched apps. Kids Place allows for fun time for kids and free time for parents when they play on your device. Compatible with Kindle Free Time.

+ Custom home screen displays only apps that parents have authorized
+ Can prevent children from buying or downloading new apps
+ Capable of blocking incoming calls when Kids Home is running
+ Capable of disabling all wireless signals while Kids Home is running to avoid exposure to cell phone, wifi and Bluetooth radiation
+ Can restarts apps accidentally stopped by small children, allowing parents to stay focused on their own tasks.
+ Add custom wallpaper to customize your child’s experience while in Kids Place
+ Timer feature to lock Kids Place after specified amount of time.
+ Appropriate for children of all ages - babies, toddlers, even teenagers

In this Parental Control app, Home; Back; Search and Call buttons are locked so that kid cannot get out of the Kids Place or make phone calls.

Permission Explanations:
+ Internet Access/ Network State: Used only for Google Analytics library. Very minimal data transferred.
+ Phone Call – Only to detect incoming phone calls. We do make any calls form the app or read any phone data.
+ Global System/Tools Settings - For wireless communications disable (airplane mode) if selected in setting; enforcing app locking; locking on restart (currently disabled)
+ Kill Background Process – Used to stop apps from launching Marketplace when Marketplace setting is turned on.

Other Notes:
+ You will have to set a “pin” when you first use the app and it is required to exit out of the app
+ If your phone is restarted while Kids Place is running Kids Place will not restart. This is deliberately done so that in case you ever forget your pin, you can just restart the phone clear the app data from the phone's 'Manage Applications' screen. The phone's login pin would prevent a child from entering your phone after a restart so make sure your phone pin is set.
+ Kids Place has been confirmed to work with other popular kids apps like:
Talking Tom, Angry Birds, Flying Penguin, Ant Smasher, Kids Doodle, Toddler Lock, Kid Mode, MatchUp,,Baby Rattle, Bunny Shooter Free Game, Kids Paint Free, Talking Panda, Kids Connect the Dots, Kids Shapes, Kid Coloring, POPOPOPOON, Cut the Rope,Kids Shape Puzzle,Fruit Ninja Free,Kid Paint, etc.
