Hahaha. Not mine. They would figure out how the game works within minutes and see that buying 1000 gems means they could build whatever they wanted. Little punks. Hell even my 3 year old would figure that crap out and want to do it. I do have to say my boys have had times on the computer where they wanted to download games, but wouldn't click to purchase/DL stuff without asking. So that's good. Still, I'd rather know that they didn't charge $20 of real money to some amazon store from some app in this "other" market outside of the wholesome family environment of apple products.

Downloaded that child app and a few others and set the pin for purchases, we are on our way.

Anything else?

Anyone know how to password protect a folder on an android? I've read some stuff saying it wasn't possible and that you had to DL an app for it. The camera wouldn't even work on the one we got. Had to DL an app just to use the camera. WTH is that? I'm concerned, but I've read good things. I just don't want to have sway from apple buyers remorse. LOL.

That's really weird about the camera app but apparently it's true. The nexus runs what's called stock Android (my Xoom does too although it's running JB too and has a camera app natively). When you buy an Android phone the manufacturer will have their own software running along side of the stock android (Samsung has their own camera app for example). The thing about Android is that it's super customizable, you can add or subtract pretty much anything you want, the OS is just a template. Play around a bit, install some nice widgets, Currents is an excellent news feed. If you have any questions ask away!

My 7yo likely won't read the news.

It really is for him. I may help him with it and ensure he's doing things safely and all that, but I have an iPad. I do admit it seems quality. I only messed about 10 minutes. Wife did most after that. Signed into the google store though and picked apps on my iPad and they automatically downloaded onto the nexus. Just some cool looking kid ones and stuff.

Thanks for you input. No idea about the folder? I want to have things like Netflix and other apps we don't want him to have free reign over in there and can only be accessed by a PW.

Regarding the folder, apparently it's in the code just not implemented yet, probably in a future update unless you root it
