The product is out — Android L, also known as “Lollipop” — and it’s a big hit so far.
Now come the controls.
Mobicip, the most popular cloud-based parental control and internet filtering service for smartphones, tablets, and computers, has announced that “parents can enhance controls on their offsprings’ Android Lollipops by downloading the latest update of Mobicip’s Safe Browser from the Google Play Store.”
“Lollipop is a much-anticipated overhaul of Google’s Android operating system,” the company recently announced. “Incorporating Google’s new material design principles, intelligent notifications, improved performance and battery management, enhanced security, and support for flexible sharing with friends and family, the new OS leapfrogs Android to the forefront of mobile platforms, arguably ahead of iOS in its design sensibility.”
The update was launched at the end of November.
“Ever since the Android L developer preview was announced, it had become increasingly clear to us that the new OS is a major overhaul and would require extensive efforts to support,” explains Suren Ramasubbu, co-founder and CEO of Mobicip.
Kids would love it, was the thinking — and parents would want solid controls in place.
“We knew that kids would love the new user experience on their smartphones and tablets, bringing up a huge concern for parents as to whether there are solid parental controls available,” noted Ramasubbu. “At Mobicip, we have been hard at work for the past several months and are excited to announce the launch of our Safe Browser app, updated for Android Lollipop.”
