Netflix Brings “Just For Kids” UI To The iPad

Netflix has just launched its “Just For Kids” user interface on the iPad, combining two of kids’ favorite things: the iPad and cartoons.

The Just For Kids UI debuted back in August of 2011, and has since made its way to the Xbox and various Blu-ray players and smart TVs.

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.
