"One device, two different phones"

"Turn your phone into a completely different device for a safe children use"

Kyte Phone is a useful application that turns your Android device into a kids phone where they will only be able to access the apps you firstly allow and a GPS tracking for better security. Whenever you log in with a mail and a password, your kid will enter a totally different interface, one with a playful background and a great design.They will not be able to log out until a parent types the password.

Using the website, you can select the apps your kids will use in an easy way and also select the contacts they will receive calls from. From the website, you can also locate your children and get a summary of all the actions they've done with the phone.

Right now the app is free but will have premium features in the near future. This is an extremely helpful application for families: it allows kids to use their phones in a healthy way, with the parents controlling the apps and numbers they have access to. Here in AndroidZoom we're very interested in this kind of children-friendly application, so we look forward to the next updates, which maybe could include the option of creating more than one user, for families with two or more kids from different ages. Kyte Phone Beta was developed by KytePhone, who assure never to share your kid's personal information.

    See the publisher's facebook first - be aware of how to get your phone unlocked without a server connection using your unlock code, which is different from your password! That big weakness aside, this is the best free app for childproofing... for now.

    The app says that it cannot communicate with the server and needs a code to turn off, but the website and dashboard are down so I cannot get one. My Nexus 7 is unusable! Please fix this!!!

    This can block your phone. DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!! IF YOU TYPE THE PASSWORD ON STARTUP WRONG, YOU CAN'T REVERT IT TO THE PARENTS' MODE, IT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!

    I wish it had more of a web dashboard for parents, and I wish it logged the content of SMS, but otherwise its quite good!
