Overview: Movile's Eduardo Henrique will discuss creating an app simple enough for young children that's also appealing to parents. He'll use the case study of Movile's PlayKids TV, a kids-first platform for children's mobile content. The UI is interactive and educational, guiding young children so they can choose content without assistance. With appropriate content and a subscription model that prevents accidental purchases, parents can give kids the mobile device without worrying. Striking a balance between a user experience for kids and parents' concerns, PlayKids TV is an example of the navigation between dual audiences developers must consider when designing kids-first apps.
