What can you use the app for?

Skid e Kids has created a safe, educational and entertaining environment for young internet users. The site is designed to allow children to enjoy similar features like those found on Facebook but without actually going to the unprotected social network. Children are protected from questionable content and potential predators that can sometimes lurk on unrestricted websites. Skid e Kids caters to young users with many entertaining features as well. Children can play video games and watch age appropriate movies. They can also invite their friends and classmates to join them on Skid e Kids. The site also allows users to trade and swap video games and toys. An educational element is also included through homework help options. Users can post homework questions and get answers from others on Skid e Kids.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Skid e Kids website encourages new users with large color images of young people having fun together. The site includes a primarily white background with subtle, seasonal elements added that give the site a little more personality. The color scheme focuses on dark blue and orange, which go together very well. Its organized design gives the site a hint of maturity that can entice pre-teens as well as younger users.

How does the registration process work?

New users can begin the registration process by clicking on the dark blue “register” button at the top of the page. Parents can go right to verification by clicking the dark blue “Facebook registration” button found just below along the right hand side. A note advises parents that their child will not be given access to Facebook, the information is only used to verify the parent’s account. The first page of the registration form asks for the user’s date of birth and gender. The next form asks for a username, email address and password. After submitting the information, the user is taken to their profile dashboard and can begin accessing Skid e Kids features.

What does it cost to use the application?

Skid e Kids welcomes new users with free access. Anyone can register for an account without paying for a subscription or set up fee. Parents can register through Facebook, so there are no charges for creating a parent account, either. The site offers many fun features and requires no payment, at least for the time being. This could change later on, but for now anyone can enjoy Skid e Kids for free.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Skid e Kids is a resource for children and parents. The site has many capabilities and the free price tag makes it appealing from a parent’s point of view. Users can enjoy movies or receive assistance with difficult homework just by assign for help from the Skid e Kids community.
