Did you know that you (and that means your kids) can watch YouTube videos using Kik Messenger? An observant and concerned reader contacted me about this. For those parents who have taken the time to restrict the YouTube app from their kid’s iPod touch, iPad or Phone, but have allowed Kik Messenger, you may want to take a closer look at this. There is more to Kik than just sending messages to friends.
Sounds like a commercial for a sugary cereal – Kik for Kids! But are all the kids using Kik really kids? Kik Messenger is a free texting app for iPhones, Android, Windows, and Blackberry phones. When I visited the App store, it didn’t take me long to see what the problem is with Kik.
