Netflix Brings “Just For Kids” UI To The iPad

Kickstarter Darling MetaWatch Shows Off New Features

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.
