The Parental Controls app from Research In Motion popped up in BlackBerry App World last week and may well be a very good idea if you have children with a BlackBerry. Depending on what version of the OS your BlackBerry is running, Parental Controls may well already be installed by default. Adam posted recently about how to use them. The BlackBerry Curve 9220 I am currently reviewing already has the controls installed but none of my other devices do, including the Bold 9900. So if the parental controls are not present already you can download the app for free and make full use of the features.
As Adam pointed out; setting up the app is simple. Just select from the list which applications you wish to be assessable by your child, set the four digit password and you are off.
With so many youngsters on Team BlackBerry these days I give full kudos to RIM for enabling the feature to allow everyone to take full advantage.
