Windows Phone 8 makes space for kids

Windows Phone 8 makes space for kids
When Windows Phone 8 makes its debut in the coming weeks, among the many anticipated changes to the operating system is kid-safe mode called “Kid’s Corner.” The idea is simple, the owner of the device can select the amount and type of content that a kid may access on the device.

The app operates as a separate launcher and appears to be fully customizable. Parents (or guardians) can select individual apps, music and video that may be accessed by the kid they are about to hand the device to. It is accessed by swiping left from the lock screen and seems nearly as easy to leave as well, simply hit the power button.

Expect this feature to be available on all Windows Phone 8 devices.
