Apple App Store Touts its Kid-Friendly Game Section

unnamed

 

(CNet) – Apple on Monday reminded its Twitter followers of a games category in its App Store that might help parents concerned about safely navigating the world of children’s apps.

“Games for Kids” features separate sections for children under 5, those 6 to 8, and those 9 to 11. The number of programs is small, with the page featuring just 38 apps for now. But the apps range from “cute puzzlers to accessible tower-defense games,” designed for children with a “wide range of skill levels and interests.”

The category, which several Apple bloggers presumed was new following the tweet, is actually a sub-category under a dedicated Kids section that Apple added to the App Store in 2013. The Kids section follows strict guidelines that prevent developers from gathering the names, addresses, phone numbers, photos, videos and audios of children under 13 without parental consent.
