ABC KIDS: Free app for Preschoolers Launched
Australia’s ABC iview and ABC KIDS have launched a new free app for the iPad, ABC KIDS iview, developed specifically for preschoolers.
A library of content will include Play School, Giggle and Hoot, Bananas in Pyjamas, Peppa Pig, Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, The Octonauts and more. There’s a “Grown Ups” section that offers parents the ability to control which programs their children can watch. It also offers parents the ability to provide feedback and recommendations for new app innovations. ABC KIDS iview is initially available on the App Store, with other platforms in development.
ABC’s head of children’s television, Deirdre Brennan, said: “We value the trust that Australian families place in us to educate and entertain their children and work hard to create an imaginative world where preschoolers can learn, play and explore across multiple platforms. We’re thrilled to launch ABC KIDS iview which offers the best of children’s content from Australia and the world, commercial free and in an environment parents and carers can control.”
