The developers of KIDO’Z recently released the first version of its Android application on the Android Market. If you are not familiar with KIDO’Z, the software provides a kid safe environment that allows children to surf their favorite sites, watch videos, play games, send emails, create and communicate — all without knowing how to read and write.
While the mobile application is built using the recently added Android support available in Adobe AIR 2.5, KIDO’Z was an early adopter of Adobe AIR and released its desktop application back in November of 2008. This is a terrific example of how developers can take advantage of their existing investments (skills, code, tools, design assets, and user experience) to build engaging experiences across devices. Congratulations to the team at KIDO’Z on the launch!

- Preloaded with many kid-friendly videos

- Movies channel
