Available for iPhone, iPad and the Web, Tocomail – safe email for kids officially unveils its child-focused email client today. And we think you’ll like it – well, your kids might.
While email may not traditionally be associated with something that younger kids do, Tocomail reimagines the medium very much with children in mind, giving parents ultimate control over their emailing activity.
Granted, most probably won’t be interested in forming large chunks of text, which is why it features a drawing board, custom avatar tool, picture timeline and a very colorful design. Want to impress grandma with a personal email? Send a picture with a short message rather than a long soliloquy.
While the free version serves up basic parental controls, featuring a ‘safe list’ of contacts, the premium version ($2.99 a month or $29.99 a year) delivers more advanced controls, including a quarantine box, profanity filter and enhanced contact list. Additionally, parents can also opt to receive a copy of a quarantined email to their regular email account.
