Netflix has just launched its “Just For Kids” user interface on the iPad, combining two of kids’ favorite things: the iPad and cartoons.
Children tend to really enjoy the iPad’s touch interface, but without any parental controls within the app, you never know when your ten-year-old could go from Phineas & Ferb cartoons to Family Guy.
In other words, it only makes sense for Netflix to choose the iPad as the first device to get the mobile version of this Kid-friendly UI.
In Just For Kids, kids not only get to choose from various themes, but they also have a carousel at the top of the UI packed full of great characters. When you tap on a character, you’re then given all the episodes in which that character appears.
Netflix Just For Kids is only currently available to owners of the iPad 2 and new iPad, and the company says versions for the original iPad and Android-flavored slates will come later.
