Yooukids - Monitor Youtube Playlists for Kids

Yooukids is a nice free iPhone and iPad app allowing you to create playlists of videos to younger children keeping them from surfing Youtube for anything and everything. 

Once the app is installed, the default mode is "kid" mode, where they have access to playlists.

In order to put on additional playlists, you set up a 4 digit PIN, login to your own Youtube account for personal playlists, or search for public playlists.  After you find the playlist, you can either sync the entire set or sync individual videos.

Yooukids would work great in Primary classrooms with iPods or iPads.  A teacher could sync playlists of a variety of books read online, like Storyline Online, and students could watch or listen on their own without the teacher in fear of kids wandering into Youtube cyber space.
