Chris Lacy, developer of other fantastic apps including Action Launcher and Link Bubble, has released his newest app on the Play Store. The app is called HomeTube and is designed to create a kid-friendly environment for your children to browse YouTube videos without you having to keep an eye on what they’re looking at.
The app itself is a pretty simple concept. You can pick from different search terms on YouTube and HomeTube only displays that specific content. Kids will be able to quickly jump around between different videos based on the pre-selected content, so you won’t have to navigate around for them, either.
Another cool feature of the app is that it can be set as a homescreen replacement, so if you want to keep your kids exclusively on YouTube videos, you can. With newer Android tablets, you can also just use separate user profiles for a YouTube-only experience. Definitely a handy trick.
The app itself is free, but there are some in-app purchases to be able to select what kind of content you want the app to display instead of the pre-selected content. Hit the link below for the download.
