From the playroom to the classroom or homework desk, JuniorTube brings the benefits of YouTube's selection of educational videos safely into the hands of tots and K12 youngsters, and helps grown ups refresh and sync them remotely to kids’ mobile devices, tablets, iPods, TVs.
Every time you encounter or are being shared a safe video on YouTube that you would like children to also watch, add it to your own playlists on YouTube. It will sync remotely to JuniorTube upon set up.
As a parent or teacher, you may install JuniorTube on your own iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. First tap on the “parent-child” button in the Playlists view.
Tap on SUBSCRIBE button associated with the YouTube playlists that you would like to remotely synchronize to JuniorTube on your device.
When the new video added to the playlist on YouTube will remotely sync to JuniorTube, you will get a notification on your device and the playlist on JuniorTube will highlight that it has new videos to watch.
While in the admin mode, tap the blue switch while listing the videos from a YouTube playlist, to select which ones you’d like to add to (or remove from) the JuniorTube app.
While in the admin mode on JuniorTube, hold your finger on top of a video in a YouTube playlist, then drag it to one of the playlists/collections on JuniorTube on your device.
If you publish your own playlists, any other JuniorTube users can also subscribe to your playlists to access your videos instantly.
Share your own YouTube playlists, or any public playlist that you search and find using JuniorTube, by simply sharing a 4-char code that JuniorTube can generate for you. Other users can subscribe to shared playlists remotely, by using your code.

It’s impossible for children to access any video other than the ones that you pre-approved by adding them on your playlists on YouTube.
Children don’t see any more information that they need. The video title is enough for them, and that’s the one prominently shown. The counter of video views is also displayed to children. All they need to do is tap ’n play.
Easy as pie. Kids can create a LEGO video collection, a Barbie one, a Math playlist, a Geography list, a History list, a Mrs. Brown Kindergarten playlist. You name it. ALL their playlists and collections have pre-approved videos.
A button allows the children to choose which playlist or collection they want to move their video into.

Time to rethink your cable TV. JuniorTube’s TV Mode enables continuous playback of the pre-approved videos synced from grown-ups’ Youtube playlists to the device.
While you have a local playlist selected, tap on this button to shuffle the videos in it. You will enter the TV Mode that enables continuous playback of shuffled videos.
Tap this icon to shuffle all the videos that were synced on the device. They will play continuously, while you’ll still have control over the playback, you may skip videos, and you may still tap to pause any video to start drawing and annotating on it.
JuniorTube allows you to record videos from within the app, save them on device’s Camera Roll, and watch them from JuniorTube’s special playlist.
Similar to what you can do with annotating pre-approved videos from YouTube, can be done on videos that were recorded on the device.
With much fun and creativity on top of that.
You are at an event, or traveling, somewhere away from your children, and someone is sharing with you a cool YouTube video. You want your kids to watch it too! You’ll forget about it before you get back home...
Either try to reproduce that video yourself when you get home :D, or better add that video to one of your YouTube playlists that is in sync with JuniorTube, and your kids at home will get it on their device and watch it right away.
Your kids don’t have a device of their own yet, but you share your own iPod, iPhone or iPad with them once in a while. You want them to watch some cool YouTube videos about, say, how to build stuff with toy bricks, rather than having them only play games.
Either freely enable online videos on your device when your kids are using it :|, or better install JuniorTube on your mobile device and synchronize it with YouTube playlists where you or others collect videos appropriate for kids.
You are a teacher at a school, daycare or learning center. You invested in iPads for children in your classes, but the kids can only play games or have limited learning apps available on devices.
Install JuniorTube on the iPads in the classroom and synchronize educational videos from YouTube by adding them to your YouTube playlists, whenever and from anywhere you’ll have the chance. You know what topics to look for: ABCs, children songs, arts & crafts, safety, manners, rules, entertaining stuff, and so much more. Share your playlists' links with students' parents so they can sync them to JuniorTube on their device.Read more...
