Chris Lacy, the developer behind apps such as Link Bubble and Action Launcher, released a new application called HomeTube to Google Play this morning. The app is essentially a launcher for children, where parents can program “safe” categories for kids to browse through on YouTube.
When first downloaded, a preselected assortment of categories are available (Spider Man cartoons, Superman flying, The Wiggles song), but for the price of $0.99, the parent can select their own categories to choose for the child.
As stated, the app is free to download, but to edit any categories, a one-time purchase of $0.99 must be made.
If you have kids that love browsing YouTube, but you want to make sure they don’t stumble upon anything inappropriate while using your phone, check it out.
