NEW YORK, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- KidzVuz.com, the video review and sharing site where children ages 7-12 create, comment and connect, has released the first video creation app specifically designed to let kids post videos on-the-go.
The new, free, KidzVuz iOS App, recently named one of the top ten new apps for kids by Entertainment Weekly (EW.com) encourages children to be roving reporters, active reviewers and amateur videographers. Whether they're eating out, traveling, shopping, or attending a movie or show, registered users will be able to share and upload videos from wherever they happen to be. The App lets kids take videos and post them directly from the app to the site, so they don't need to learn complicated upload procedures. Finally, there's a place where kids can safely post the videos they're already taking!
Launched in 2011, KidzVuz.com is a COPPA-compliant online community that enables children to be content creators rather than simply content consumers. With their parents' approval, Tweens can register on the site to upload video reviews of fashion, travel, technology, games, movies, TV, books and magazines, music, sports, and more. Designed especially for the under-13 set, KidzVuz promotes critical thinking while teaching kids how to create content at an early age in a safe environment. The app lets them take that same experience with them, wherever they go.
"The simplicity and immediacy of the App's record and post functionality makes it ideally suited for kids who are used to instant gratification," said Rebecca Levey, co-founder of KidzVuz who will also appear on a panel at the CES 2013 Kids at Play Summit. "Yet parents will feel safe knowing that every video and comment on the App – and the site - is monitored and approved before being posted."
Parents can engage their tween-aged kids by encouraging them to document family vacations, outings and activities with the KidzVuz App. And with access to thousands of easily searchable videos already on the KidzVuz site, kids and parents can watch existing reviews directly from the app, and use them as a resource to help them decide whether or not to make a purchase or see a movie.
Key features of the new free KidzVuz App include:
- An integrated webcam that enables kids to upload video reviews instantly
- Video review capabilities across a variety of categories including fashion, food, technology, toys, games, travel, movies, music, books, sports and more
- Access to thousands of videos from the KidzVuz site
- COPPA-compliant, moderator-approved content
"This is the only App specifically designed for kids to create and post videos," said KidzVuz co-founder, Nancy Friedman. "We want to empower kids to share their point of view about the things that matter to them."
The KidzVuz App is available for iPad, iPodtouch, and iPhones in the app store.
