App Store Gets New ‘Games for Kids’ Section for iOS Apps

Users who are searching for games for preschoolers on iPhone or need to quickly find iOS apps for kindergarten or any other applications for children get a new sub-section added to the App Store [did you hear about record January sales?] specifically for these needs. The Cupertino-based company has updated its digital store with the new sub-category called Games for Kids.

When Apple released iOS 7 in 2013 it also added Kids category to its App Store, and now, in 2015, the iPhone maker decides it’s time to add a sub-section specifically for games.

When you launch iTunes or App Store on the iPad or iPhone you can choose Kids menu and select the new sub-category. Once Games for Kids is up you can see three divisions which make it simpler for parents to find programs for their little ones.

Games for kids [free download and paid programs] are divided into age categories. You can find apps for children under 5 years old, for kids aged 6-8 and 9-11. The sub-section shows the names for all ages so it is simple to segregate iOS 8 applications for particular age.

What role do games and apps play in developing modern children? Apple has highlighted the iBook that describes this to parents. Right now you can find Family Time book at the top of Games for Kids category.

When choosing apps and games for iOS 8 platform you can also see which programs support in-app purchase feature and which don’t have it.

  1. sometimes we forget how hard this can all be for a small child. Thanks for this insightful post. We have not had to move countries, but my kids do attend an immersion school.
