    "Looks safe, but can't receive e-mail"

    May 13, 2009  |   By BeamMeUpJC


    I like that it is a self-contained browsing environment. It has a timer that allows a parent to set an amount of time their child can browse or play games.


    It is set up to do outgoing email only - you have to provide a reply-to address and all incoming mail comes to that address, and is not viewable within the KidRocket browser. So email conversations can't happen within the Kidrocket environment.


    Another thing you can't do is add additional web pages to the trusted sites. There are about 10 sites that they have "approved" for kids, with tons of kid-safe content, but that is a miniscule slice of what is actually available. I think the developers say they are planning to add more sites, but as a parent I really need to be able to add/remove sites on my own.
