The Play store has thousands of apps that range from all sorts of categories; games, photography, educational, shooters, the list goes on and on. While it is great to have such a great assortment of apps to choose from, it does make it difficult to find those that are appropriate for kids (we wouldn’t want a toddler to be going around shooting zombies now would we). Google today has announced a new program for developers that will allow them to designate their apps to be kid friendly where soon after Google will approve them or deny them. We personally find Designed for Families to be a great idea, as it would allow finding appropriate apps for kids to be a much smoother process.
Designed for Families is definitely going to make finding apps for kids a much smoother process.
Developers can go ahead and submit their apps for review starting today, with Google reviewing them to make sure they meet the Designed for Families guidelines. They are also planning on adding some new ways to promote these approved apps, perhaps a new tab in the Play Store? Either way, I am sure many a parent or guardian will find this news to be a quite welcome.
