Customer Reviews

Mom of a 10 yr old

I recently added this app to my 10rs old girl to her phone because I noticed she and a little friend had search on images of nude boys so now with this app it has prevented her and her friends from being too curious and eventually see sites that are not appropriate . This app has many features which are great since parents have the option to customize even time how long can use but some features like timing must be purchase. Overall excellent the only issue my daughter has and even I is that it doesn't have an image tab so if she searches for homework pictures she must open page by page to find an image she can print and use.

Its a good browser

Im an 11 year old boy who has this. My mom took off safari of my ipod touch and i was pretty upset. My parents gave me the privilege to download and delete apps and i thought about getting the google app. But then i understood that they were trying to protect me from adult sights like playboy. I kept the app and im pretty happy with it. I like my ipod touch and i want the best for me and my parents do to. Im sure the makers of this great app do to or they wouldn't have made it. If you are a parent reading this please get this for your child!

To the person who said you can't block Safari...

If you read the description above, it specifically tells you how to disable Safari & make this your browser.

I have had the same issue as some others... a curious tween. I was thrilled to find this app & have no problem paying for the upgrade. Parents have no problem handing their kids a $250 iPod touch or a $700 iPad, but will complain about a few dollars to make the device age appropriate? Shame on you.
