Video-sharing social network Vine has just introduced a new app, Vine Kids, that focuses on providing curated content designed for younger children.
The app is easy to navigate. Swiping right or left shows a new age-appropriate Vine. When kids tap the screen, they can hear funny and quirky sounds.
Curated videos are shared in perfectly designed interface for younger kids.
And according to a blog post from Carolyn Penner, head of communications and marketing for Vine, the idea for the app blossomed earlier this month:
The idea came about during an office conversation in early January. One of my colleagues was talking about how much his two-year-old daughter loves Vine he said he wished there was a separate app she could use to more easily watch posts that are appropriate for kids. That week happened to be Hack Week, a time when we get to work on projects outside of our day-to-day work. So two folks teamed up and built exactly that.
