Apple Opens Kids App Store
As part of the launch of iOS 7, Apple has added a new Kids section into the App Store. It's subdivided into smaller categories with apps for kids ages five and under, six to eight, and nine to eleven. At the same time, the company has revised its age policies for iTunes accounts and now allows those under thirteen to sign up if they go through an "approved educational institution."
Some firms with apps in the new store, including Duck Duck Moose, PBS KIDS Digital and Disney, say they are already seeing improvements in their download numbers since the new store launched.
