More and more children today are getting tech-savvy or using their parents’ smartphone to play games or watch content. Therefore, both the Galaxy S5 and the new Tab S range of Android tablets from Samsung has a feature called ‘Kids Mode’. Besides, the company has added a brand new update to the Kid Store, designed to make these devices more kid-friendly.

Samsung wants to deliver a better user experience or kids, as finding apps or games for children on the PlayStore can be overwhelming.

“Kids Store now offers 900 specially selected applications for children. Comprised of two tabs with a choice of content grouped by age and subject, Kids Store allows users to easily navigate through the available content. The content classification is as follows: 0-4 years old for preschool children, 5-6 years old for kindergarteners and 7 years old or more in primary school children. The content is also categorized by subject: learning, play, and story,” Samsung explained in a press release.

Samsung also added that the Kids Store brand zone offers premium content for children from the likes of PBS Kids, Budge Studio, Cupcake Digital, and Intellijoy. The Kids Store offers over 900 apps or games, along with highly popular and well-known titles from PBS Kids, LEGO, Pocoyo, Tipitap, as well as English educational content.

To recall, Kids Mode made its debut late last year on the limited edition ‘Galaxy Tab 7 Kids’. It has now expanded to the Galaxy S5 and the new Tab S lineup of Android Tablets. Therefore, we can expect Kids Mode to be included in future updates as well as in the forthcoming Galaxy Note 4 expected to launch later this fall.
