    Hey all,

    I'm looking into getting either a Kindle Fire 7 or one of the Samsung Galaxy tablets for my 7 year old daughter.

    We have one Fire HD already, and the thing I love about it is that it comes with Freetime, which keeps the kids from using apps I haven't approved.

    It also lets me set a time limit, so the kids can only play games for a certain amount of time.

    Samsung's "Kids Mode" will do all of this so far.

    But here's the hard part: Freetime on Kindle will let me limit apps and books separately. For example, I can limit app time to 1 hour, but still allow unlimited reading of books after that.

    Is there an Android solution that will let me limit the kids to certain apps for a certain amount of time, but allow a different amount of time to the Kindle app for Android?

    I'd prefer to get a regular android tablet over the kindle, but without this feature, it may not work for us.

    Thanks very much for your help.

    Welcome to Android Central! I like Kids Place, which is a kid-safe alternate launcher. It also has additional plugins--Kids Place Screen Time might be what you're looking for.
