B.O.B. is THE Parental Control Web Browser for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch platforms.

B.O.B. has been designed to provide effective, simple, and secure web browsing for families who take internet content concerns seriously. Don't let OTHER people decide which websites are appropriate for your children to view. B.O.B. puts YOU in complete control over exactly which websites your children can visit.

EFFECTIVE: B.O.B. allows your children to freely visit any website that you have specifically approved for their viewing. No other sites will display, period.

SIMPLE: The approved sites are simply B.O.B.'s bookmarks. B.O.B. is a Bookmarks-Only Browser, get it?

SECURE: Bookmarks can only be added, deleted, or changed with your 4-digit password. You choose your password when you first launch B.O.B.

In addition to these features, B.O.B. works over Edge, 3G, and WIFI, and B.O.B. is built on the same engine as Safari for a reliable browsing experience. Note: Some features of Safari have been removed to simplify the user-experience (with younger children in mind). Please email B.O.B. support with requests for new features to be added to B.O.B.! B.O.B. will evolve according to customer requests. Thanks!

Finally, B.O.B.'s controls cannot be circumvented without knowledge of the 4-digit password. Simply turn Safari OFF in your device's preferences and use B.O.B. for safe browsing.

You do not need to create accounts with 3rd parties to use B.O.B., and page loading is speedy since your browsing does not go through or in any way depend on 3rd party proxy servers.

Super Easy Setup, Great Features, and NO Annual Fee!!

:
If you are looking for a safe browser to use for your child's iPod Touch or iPhone, then you really only have two decent alternatives: B.O.B. and Mobicip. Mobicip is more full-featured (and more complicated to setup/maintain) and costs more ($5 + $10/year for full features). B.O.B. puts you in complete control of your child's browsing abilities, no site gets through that you don't allow! B.O.B. is super easy to setup and maintain. Try the free version if you are not sure (like I did) and you'll gladly pay a one-time price of $10 for the full version of B.O.B.!

5/5 stars

BOB is a great parental app

:
After seeing these reviews, I have to admit that the parenting filter is very strict. But after working with the BOB app, I finally figured out how to make it work, I would like to explain it to those who tried to make it work, but it's kinda complicated to say. It took about an hour to set up the sites I approved because I had a long list of sites but it was very well worth it.

2/5 stars

iPad ready?

:
This does not run full screen on iPad natively, only 2x. Who likes blurry web browsing?
