    Hey guys. Dan reported a feature called Kidszone. I really think it's a good feature. Because my cousin and baby brother love play with my phone. So would you love it guys?

    Honestly I would have no need for it personally. But I see it's uses when parents want to give their children smartphones (it's the year 2012 after all). Since I'm against blocking pornographic material from the marketplace as I see it as as breaking the freedom of speech, I think it's great to have the option as a parent to blovk such content from childrens phone, for instance.

    So all in all a welcome feature that I personally will not use since I have no children and won't have in any near future anyway. :P

    It would be great if this allows bing search to give actual results as that filters out things that bing.com doesn't. Then we have adult apps, adult books, M games, R movies, any movies?

    I would like to be able to hand over the phone though and let the kid play a game without text, emails coming in and them leaving that area.

    It's good because Apple kills everyone on parental controls.

    I guess it depends on what the feature actually is. There are so many possibilities.

    Here is how it should work, MS take notes. (at least best for me)

    First a settings page, what I want Kidzone to access. Certain games, media, apps, incoming calls, incomming texts, make calls, take pictures,(anything else feel free to add).

    The main point is that to turn this on, it is through the Lock Screen. One passcode unlocks your device, how we are all used to, one pascode activates Kidzone.

    This works great for me as I get pestered for my phone when it is in my pocket and also if the kid sees a code, it is one that restricts their use, or I could give them that code right off that bat.

    It would be useful for parents. I'm not a parent, so I wouldn't use it.

    Useless for me in general, but sometimes it could come in handy at visits of my cousin.
