With the release of the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 7, Apple has added a ‘Kids’ category to it’s App Store.
This new category aims to help parents and children find appropriate apps and is split into the following subcategories:
- Best for Ages 5 & Under
- Best for Ages 6-8
- Best for Ages 9-11
Developers must have their apps approved by Apple before they can be included in the ‘Kids’ category. Also, apps for children cannot direct kids to in-app purchases or contain links to purchase other apps without first asking for a parent’s password.
