Yay! Mobicip was featured in this article on The Florida Times-Union. Interestingly, the article describes a training program organized by a school for parents of students who will be issued iPads in the fall when school begins. An excerpt:

Parent training session pictureDuring a two-hour session Monday, Episcopal’s technology director George Terre showed McCawley and a dozen parents an app called Mobicip.
 
Mobicip is a web browser that allows parents to block certain websites and material from students. Once downloaded, the app takes away Safari and any other browsers the iPad may hold, forcing students to use only Mobicip.
 
Terre showed parents how to download the app and hide the iTunes store from the device so kids won’t purchase content.
