YouTube Kids for iPhone and Android

Regardless of what mobile operating system you favor, chances are that you are using quite a few popular Google services, including Search, Gmail, Maps and YouTube, to name just a few. And if you’re a parent then you should definitely be interested in the latest service the company launched, a new app that’s available for both iPhone and Android in the U.S. right now.

FROM EARLIER: Google’s latest mobile search change brings some key interface changes

Called YouTube Kids, the free app is supposed to offer a safer environment to children who’re old enough to look for online videos. In case you have kids of your own or you’re frequently around people who do, then you should definitely install it for those moments when kids take over your smartphone or tablet.

The app has a “bright and playful design” that should appeal to children, and features content that’s better suited for the family by leaving out topics that might otherwise be inappropriate for kids.

Additionally, there are various parental controls available, including a timer, sound and search settings, and the option of providing feedback for the product.

A video showing the application in action follows below, with more information about the YouTube Kids app available at the source links. To download the app, follow this link (for iPhone) or this one (for Android).
