When we run our 'Keeping kids safe on the iPad and iPhone' information sessions in local schools - where we look at how to set up parental controls on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches - we are often asked whether similar parental controls can be set up on Android devices.
For those parents whose children have Android devices, here is an interesting article that appeared online in the past week or so - about a Google app that allows parents to control what kids can do and see on their Android device/s, and to even limit the time they spend on these screens.
The article does mention that the app is available in the US - but I am assuming it is also available in Australia.
If you are an Android user interested in this app, let me know in the comments below if you are able to install and use it!
At a recent Keeping Kids Safe on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch information session run for parents at a local school, one of the parents asked if parental controls can be set up on an Android device.
For those of you with such devices (or with kids using these devices), here are some articles that discuss how to set up parental controls on these devices.

When spending time up in North-East Victoria this week as big winds hit on a very hot day, we noticed smoke in the direction that we were heading.
So, I went straight to the FireReady App on my iPhone to check what fires were in the region.
The FireReady App is a must-have app for everyone, regardless of where you live - especially on a day like today in Melbourne, where we have high winds and an expected top of 41°.
You can set up 'Watch Zones' for particular areas, and receive updates (via a notification on your mobile device) of any fire activity in the area, choosing which types of events you wish to be notified of (i.e. bushfires, house fires, hazardous materials, planned burns).
Get the iPhone/iPad version of the App here.
