Tocomail offers a real and fun email experience for children, while providing parents with complete control over their email activity.
A first email service for kids, Tocomail features an easy-to-use intuitive interface designed to make it simple to stay connected with family and friends on popular platforms. Tocomail provides a personalized email address (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org) and users will get “Push Notifications” sent to their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch when mail is received.
Tocomail makes emailing fun with many cool features such as a drawing board, custom avatar creation, picture timeline and a colorful design that all kids will love. So even if a child can’t type, they can easily draw a picture and include it in an email. With two different levels of user-interface (UI), Tocomail can be enjoyed by kids of all ages.
The free version delivers a basic set of parental controls conducted through a safe list of contacts allowed to communicate with their kids. With premium services, the child can communicate with any contact outside the safe list after the parent has viewed and approved the email. Parents can also choose to receive a copy of the quarantined email sent to their regular email account and can approve or reject emails directly from these notifications. In addition, a bullying recognizer that will detect and immediately notify parents if bullying patterns are found will be added soon.
Tocomail is available for free at www.tocomail.com or from the App Store on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
