Kindle Free Time Adds New Educational and Parental Control Features

Amazon has an announcement to make. It will be introducing new learning tools along with stricter parental control features on its Kindle Fire tablets. A new version of Kindle Free Time app will be available exclusively from Amazon. This update will be delivered automatically to any Kindle Fire tablet that has the FreeTime app in the coming weeks. It is an ideal promotional scheme for both parents and kids that ties in well with the upcoming Christmas holidays.

“Kindle Fire is already the best tablet for kids and families—and now we’re making it even better,” said Peter Larsen, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. “We know kids spend a lot of time every day looking at screens, and we’re excited to add new tools that help parents make this time more educational. Parents can use features like ‘Learn First’ to ensure study comes before play and set daily educational goals for reading and learning. If you subscribe to FreeTime Unlimited, your kids will enjoy thousands of new educational books, apps, games and videos.”   

It happens to be the perfect companion for children and their parents. And now it is being upgraded so that it will work with even greater efficiency. Learn First is the tool of choice for guardians who want their kids to do their homework before they go outside to play baseball. 

The fact that many youngsters nowadays spend the majority of their time in front of the idiot box or the computer screen means that a major dimension of education is lacking. To cover this gap, Amazon is presenting new apps, books, video clips and games on its platform

A concentration on reading makes such applications as My First Words, Spanish, Elmo Loves 123’s and BrainPOP Jr. just right for the young crowd. There are time limit apps along with tons of educational aids that range from the very simple to the highly complex. All in all, Kindle Fire has got software installed on it now that allows the family to function as one unit. The parents set examples and the children learn and their characters get built

Customers can now order the new $139 Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HDX 7” and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9” at Amazon.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
