The world’s first iPad browser for kids now free for a limited time in celebration of Apple’s new iPad.
The ZillyDilly app is extending its limited-time free offer to new iPad owners. According to Dr. Eitan Schwarz, CEO of MyDigitalFamily, Ltd., “Inventing an Internet good for children is our calling at ZillyDilly, and we are eager for the new iPad to make children’s online experience more fun and healthy.”
ZillyDilly is a new kind of tablet browser that blends entertainment and educational experiences while encouraging responsible web use for children of all ages.
ZillyDiIly is maintained by child development experts who find, inspect and rate thousands of websites against proprietary metrics: Family Relationships, Socialization, Values Education and Education Enrichment and Entertainment.
The app guides parents to customize these hand-picked sites into a gender and age-adjusted balance for each child: browsing and previewing sites from ranked annotated lists, searching by child interests and filtering for bilingual sites or those with parent/teacher manuals. ZillyDilly then offers kids only sites selected by parents, and timers suggest or control maximum daily time and weekly times. ZillyDilly also blocks ads and other off-task activities, and reports to parents exactly how the child has been browsing through a cloud-based solution.
ZillyDilly grows with children. Parents can introduce children as young as preschoolers to the Internet. As the child grows, ZillyDilly adjusts timers, age group assignments and site choices as needed, and gradually expands privileges to encourage responsible, mature online behavior.
