Apple launches new Kid section of App store

Now within the Apple App Store is the added “Kids” category where apps are broken down by age range. This section of the store separates the apps into three age ranges, spanning those 5 and under, those between 6 and 8, and finally, those for kids between 9 and 11. This has Apple finally taking steps to better cater to the children who have adopted its devices, and especially family favorite the iPad, with the launch of a Kids App section. In addition to better organizing the mobile apps targeting children for ease-of-use, the Kids App Store also comes at a time when Apple has begun to allow children under 13 to sign up for and hold iTunes user accounts, as long as they’re funneled through an “approved educational institution.” – TechCrunch
