Maily: Your Kids’ First Email
A fun idea for kids, although multiple user accounts would be good for families with more than one child.
Maily: Your Kids’ First Email Review
by on October 5, 2012
We were initially quite skeptical about this app (why on earth do young kids need to send email, right?), but it’s actually pretty useful for replying to grandparents, aunts and uncles, instead of traditional thank you letters.
Your child can choose to customise their email with a photo, picture frame, truck, digger or person and they can write a little message using a pen, so it still feels handmade and unique, in contrast to an impersonal text email.
Things are a little unclear during set up – you need to enter an email address, and then it asks for your email address’ password too, but don’t worry; your username is simply an email address and then you invent a new password. The emails it sends are all sent from a firstname.lastname@example.org address, rather than your account. Your child can only receive emails from people in their contacts list, so it feels safe.
If the developers added some extra features like multiple accounts (we can imagine the current free version being a source of arguments for single iPad households with siblings!) and more features such as the ability to send an email to more than one recipient, we’d happily pay for this app.
