Great news: Apple’s App Store gets a Kids category

Yesterday Apple announced new products and software at it’s annual WWDC conference in San Francisco. For parents and us developers of apps for children the biggest update was the introduction of a Kids category in the App Store as part of the iOS 7 update. And that’s truly great news for all of us!

“Parents are going to love this," said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “Now parents and teachers can quickly find apps that are perfect for children. Just visit the new Kids category for a curated selection of age-appropriate apps."

Until now apps for children were scattered between the Entertainment, Education and Games categories on the app store. Now parents shall be able to search the kids category by age-range. We are very glad Apple finally made this step and allows families to discover the most appropriate apps for them.
