    I've just made the switch from iOS to Android (Sony Xperia and I am in love!!). Tell me your fave app or widget :-)

    Just off the top of my head. Oh and my phones camera has a flash and there is a flash light app that runs off it and that is great too.

    It's an app that let's you select what apps (maybe even certain websites, my kids don't use the net so I'm not sure) on your phone your kids can play.

    Here you can see there is parent dashboard and kid mode. Downloading parent dashboard gives you kid mode.

    Parent dashboard let's you set up profiles for your child/ren and select what they can access on your phone.

    When you open kid mode this is what it looks like. Your child/ren select their picture, which opens their profile.

    This is what ds2s profile looks like.

    I hope that makes sense and helps

    Oh, also they cannot get out of kid mode. To unlock it and get to your home screen you have to enter your birth year.

    If your child is playing a game and wants to change games they just press the home button (the button at the bottom of your phone that normally returns you to your home screen) and it takes them back to their games menu in their profile.

    The can also read/listen to books, draw pictures and some other stuff on their profile.

    I just remembered there is something about blocking content so I'm assuming you can allow certain access to the net.

    Thanks I will have to look it up. Dd2(2) has taught herself to use my phone. She has added people i don't know on Facebook, called random people in my phone book, done countless searches on Google for gueckhtsbotfnxztxcbys and occasionally piujohfwsvjob ncstingyn and just today said she was going to call dad and picked my phone up and started looking for dps photo in my phone (I have his photo attached to his phone number on my contacts list)! Kids and technology these days!
