Measuring Up To The Competition

MOBICIPNEWS on April 08, 2013

A customer asked this question just yesterday. "How does Mobicip's Safe Browser compare against similar apps in the App Store?" Interestingly, this question has not been answered by any third-party review sites so far.

Does The Safe Browser Measure Up?

Yes, Mobicip has been reviewed by the likes of AppAdvice and CNet. The Safe Browser has won theParents' Choice and Tech & Learning awards. But the best option we recommend is this. Open the App Store on iOS or iTunes and search for "parental controls". Read the reviews for each of the top 5. Better yet, download each app (for free) and use it to compare and contrast. We did this too and this is what we found.
