[prMac.com] Dublin, Ireland - DuckyTube introduces St. Patrick's Day DuckyTube - Safe YouTube for Kids 1.0 on iOS devices. With Spring in the air and family days out, parties and parade watching to be done, it’s easy to think the little ones want to be involved in every bit, when they get bored it’s so easy to just give them your iPhone and let kids watch videos – but can you be sure they’re safe? YouTube videos can provide education and entertainment for even the youngest of children but doing this safely is another matter. DuckyTube is designed by parents for parents to make life that little bit easier.
DuckyTube lets parents choose what videos they feel are appropriate for their children, and these are the only things seen by little eyes. The child then has the independence to choose what video they want to see and is brought back to this screen when the video finishes, rather than seeing some of the nasty comments or inappropriate material that can litter YouTube.
Adding and removing videos is simple, the controls are hidden in the shamrock grass at the bottom of the screen, easy for parents, difficult for little ducks, this means there’s no need to leave the app or enter passwords for adding or removing videos. These can be changed as often as you like. Our ducky has his lucky leprechaun hat on to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
DuckyTube has been getting great reviews and feedback:
Alison Hirst, 'The iMum':
"This is a great app for parents who want to control what their children see via YouTube be it for educational purposes or entertainment."
"Great app, easy to use and handy for queues, the doctors surgery or anywhere you have to wait."
"This is one of the best ideas out there. I have spent so much time watching what my kids see in you tube, most of it not suitable! This really sets my mind at ease. Well done. 5 star"
