    I like it. Perhaps calling it "Kids Corner" was a mistake? I don't remember seeing them mention it could be renamed.

    It can be renamed on the screen but not in the settings. Mine has my boys' names on the lock screen instead of "Kid's Corner"

    Its not much use to be honest - especially for music - if you want to use anything else on your phone you have to lock then unlock your phone go back into yout normal start screen which then stops the music. Im assuming it would do the same for any other app. Nice idea though shame it doesnt execute properly.

    Kids corner is brilliant, my kids are happy to go into it, and can do everything they want, without going into my part of the phone.

    There are certainly improvements, but its a damn good start, and a killer feature for parents.
