"One device, two different phones"

Reviewed by / Apr 26, 2012

"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.

    Please enable user to identify missed calls and text message sender. App allows notification of a text or missed call but it's impossible to identify sender unless the user opens each individual contact separately. Will rate 5 stars if/when fixed

    It does everything it promises; no need to say more. I installed it in my cell because my children (ages 11 and 14) use it, and I wanted to block some apps that I disapprove. But I had to uninstall it because the battery discharge very quickly. Normally,
