  1. Allow email in other language or alphabet

    Some families are bilingual, and for instance if the father only communicates in a language that requires cyrillic letters, he is unable to communicate with his child.

    • To be able to transfer a contact from the siblings to the general contact list, if I make a mistake. Or delete it from there.

      Right now, if you add a contact in the sibling list, it cannot be delete. Therefore, if I make a mistake, I cannot correct it. In the enter/edit window, it would be nice to chose the group right there as we enter the contact.

        Right now if you login to the parent account and click on Manage Contacts on the left side of the page it will pull up all the contacts. You can edit or delete all contacts there, let me know if that helps.

      • How do I attach multiple files or attachments?

        My daughter needs to email someone multiple attachments for a project. As it stands, it seems we can only make place one attachment.

          You can include multiple attachments, but the files need to be located near each other so you can highlight them all. If you can highlight them all, then it will include more than one attachment.

        • allow for two parental emails to review incoming mail. Each with overriding authority.

          Allow for a couple of guardian emails- each with total view of any correspondence. Each with authority to block any unauthorized email. Some parents don't have immediate access to a computer. This would allow the flow of qualified email to continue to the child without delay.

          • Provide an easy way to send approved addresses to Contcts list

            When I get an email with the option to approve a message from someone not in Contacts it would be nice to have an easier way to add them to the Contacts list so future emails are automatically approved.

            • enable email to text

              I have to keep a few different email accounts so that my daughter can text with her friends. I would love for her to just use this account as a "text-ready" account. Thank you.

              • filter sent emails in the iOS app

                In the iOS app I can type in any email address and send an email. It seems like the whole point of this service is to prevent kids from sending or receiving emails from someone not on their whitelist.

                The iOS app should enforce this whitelist for sending emails.

                    We realize this is not the same thing, however we have decided not to provide access to our mail servers, so pop, smtp, and/or imap access will not be provided as this time.

                    Our apologies,
                    Brittany

                    We are SUPER excited to share that you can now use Kids Email with iMessage, Facetime, iCloud on iPhones, and iPods! Check out the instructions here!

                  • improve the iTunes App

                    I have a few suggsetions for the iTunes App. As others have suggested it would be great to see contact names (even more important than the email addresses which are the only thing currently displayed). Can you give the option to enable push notifications when their is an incoming email? Finally, a parent management app for my iPhone would be great!

                    • Create a dedicated iPad app

                      The iPhone app does work on the iPad, but it is "clunky". A dedicated app would make the iPad kidsemail experience much better.

                      • Show short-cut names for email addresses in the address book

                        On the ipad app, the address book that comes up when you are addressing an email only shows email addresses, not the person's actual name. Very confusing for the little ones.

                                I like the app, but I'd live it to be more user friendly so that I, the parent, can manage my kids' accounts at a glance from my smartphone. I.e delete inappropriate messages.

                                  the app on the kindle is hard for kids to use(age 7 & 9). needs bigger buttons and a yes or no option before they send an email. Also the contact list is twitchy.

                                  • Set the cursor to the beginning of textbox when replying to inbound emails via the iOS app.

                                    When replying to an email via the iPhone app, move the incoming text down a few lines and set the cursor to the beginning of the text box, so the child can begin responding without adjusting the cursor position.

                                        • Put name of sender/recipient in Subject line of any emails copied to me

                                          When my child receives an email, I get a copy of that email, and the subject line of that copy just says, "Incoming email for (account name)". I would like the name and or address of the sender to be put in the Subject line, so that I can quickly see who sent the email.
