The icky possibilities of the internet are endless and if Santa manages to put an iPod Touch on his sleigh for my kids this will be one of the first apps that I install.

Mobicip is great!
I have used Mobicip for internet safety for my two children for several years. I researched several parental control apps when my children received their first devices in middle school and found Mobicip to be the best in being able to customize settings for their individual needs. Mobicip has given me great peace of mind in being able to monitor my kids' internet activities. It has been wonderful to be able to use the same system of parental controls for both my middle and high school aged children, and still be able to individualize the settings for each of their devices. Mobicip has grown with them, and enabled me to help guide them in their use of the internet, from when they received their first itouch, to their iphones and ipads. I now have one child in college, and a second who will be going to college soon. I definitely feel that Mobicip has been a wonderful tool for protecting my kids on the internet and for teaching them to be responsible on the internet.
Simple internet security for kids
We are now entering year 3 with our three 6th graders and their iPads. My wife from Day1 was concerned about "managing" our kids access to the internet, etc. We chose Mobicip due to reviews we'd read but I was concerned since my wife, who would be the gatekeeper, was not particularly adept with technology. She emails and surfs the web but that's it. While I handle synching and configuring the iPads my wife handles the configuration of Mobicip to monitor our kids usage, etc. At this point my wife has "mastered" Mobicip settings and feels very comfortable with using the product. For me that says a lot about the product and the ease with which someone can use it "out-of-the-box".
A kid's Point of view on this app
I think that this app is okay, if my parents want to give me a limited internet, that's better than no internet. But one thing I don't like is that it doesn't look like Safari. It's embarrassing when my friends notice, so I think that you should make it look exactly like Safari. I once tried to make an app, so I get how it would be hard to get the wallpaper on the home screen behind the open tabs, but it should look more like Safari. If you need the extra settings, make a different app for parents with those settings, and make one for kids that looks like safari. The last thing is that it blocks completely okay websites so improve your filters.
