Maily Email For Kids

Download of the Day: Maily, Email For Kids

There's no doubt that emailing is a necessary skill in the 21st century, but finding a way to safely introduce your kids to online messaging is difficult. The folks at Maily (free) creatively stripped email of its complexity and redesigned online messaging for young kids ages 4 and up. For the most part, traditional email isn't available for kids under 12 and, oftentimes, these inboxes are inundated with unwanted spam and inappropriate advertisements. With Maily, children create email accounts to send mail to a select group of close friends and family using the iPad app's virtual pencils, brushes, backgrounds, and stamps — no reading or writing necessary.

Maily's young users have an inbox and address book — just like the grown-ups — but the difference is that Maily accounts are created and fully supervised by parents, who can opt to receive a copy of every email sent or received and filter messages before they're read. This kid-friendly email system is a fun way to introduce youngsters to technology, and we're all for the safe, early introduction! What do you think about Maily?
