If it seems that every one of your kid's friends got an iPod Touch over the holidays, then you're not alone! The Touch does have a lot of great, kid-friendly features, but there are others that , with just a couple of innocent swipes, can cause more harm that good.

Luckily, the iPod Touch has settings and restrictions to help you make it safer for your kids....

For example: The iPod Touch comes with Safari and YouTube, access to iTunes, the App Store, Facetime, and a camera....All great for you, but not so great for free access by kids.

But, you can set restrictions on pretty much everything by doing the following:
1. Go to Settings
2. Click on General
3. Click on Restrictions
4. Enable restrictions
5. Turn "off" what you don't want your kids to have access to, (Safari, Camera, Facetime, iTunes, Installing/Deleting Apps, etc

Read lots of other step-by-step instructions to "kid-ify" that iPod Touch. (Cool Mom Tech)

On the go? Not a problem. Now you can listen to STAR 94 on your iPhone and Android smartphone. Now how smart it that!
