Netflix users with children and an iPad can now take control over what their children watch on the popular tablet with a new feature called “Just for Kids.” This is a place where children can sit down with the iPad and watch only videos that are tailor-made for them. No longer will parents need to worry that children are using the iPad and Netflix to catch the latest R-rated movie. Netflix recommends this content for all children 12 and under.
Not only does this update allow children to get access to content that is appropriate for them, it also introduces an incredibly simple user interface that will make it easier for children to find their favorite video content. The images on this new UI are larger, so it is easier than ever for children to pull up the latest episode of Dora The Explorer or any other child-appropriate content in Netflix’s extensive library.
Enabling this mode is easy for parents. There is a button tucked on the upper left corner of the screen. A simple tap on this button will cause the iPad to switch to the new child-friendly interface, and kids will be free to enjoy their favorite TV shows in an instant.
The app is available now for iPad 2 and New iPad users. Netflix plans to roll the app out to original iPad and Android tablet owners in the very near future, so keep your eyes peeled for that too.
