KiddoPlayer is a very simple music player designed to be used by kiddos who love music, and want to be able to choose the music they listen to, all by themselves. Its simple interface helps them learn how to control their own music listening experience, while allowing parents to control what songs the kiddo has access to. Children will learn about scrolling, selection, tapping buttons, and starting and stopping songs. Children can remember which buttons start which songs by color, location, and even the words in the song titles as they begin to read. Children love being able to find and play their songs by themselves, and might even enjoy taking requests from parents or other children. Parents can set up the child's list of songs by simply creating playlists in iTunes, and then syncing them to the iPad. And you can even limit which songs from your iPad's iTunes library will appear in KiddoPlayer.
