Modern cell phones have evolved into incredibly capable devices; in fact, they are so prevalent that it can be hard to accept that the first version of the iPhone is only five years old. Though it seems like the venerable device has been with us forever, it was in fact launched in 2007.

With the Kid Mode app, you can deny your young son or daughter certain phone privileges and prevent them from accidentally purchasing in-app products, accessing unsuitable materials online, deleting texts or past phone calls, and clicking on pop-up ads. In essence, the Kid Mode app works just as described – put simply, it places your smartphone into a kid-friendly mode. All of the apps and games that they use most will still be available to them; the difference is that you won't have to constantly be looking over their shoulder or worrying that your son or daughter is doing something he or she shouldn't be.
