Children spend so much time on tablets and the smartphones of their parents, wandering around for hours through the enormous international offer from developers from all over the world. That’s why we thought it’s about time to thoroughly examine what can be done in app-country. We held the offer towards the light and formulated a fitting, healthy, media-critical menu of apps that could carry the Cinekid-stamp of approval with vitality. We bundled these apps together here.

AppLab is a selection of apps that Cinekid chooses to set as an example of what the large international scene has to offer. Our app tips are easy to find and comparable through our eight useful categories. All our selected apps have been tested on quality, playability and safety. Of course, we test the apps on privacy settings and provide user age recommendation as well, and a warning for in-app purchases or inappropriate content.

Several times a year, the selection of this AppLab page is tweaked and updated. Cinekid works together with partners of the game world and the creative industry: young game developers, designers and visual artists, and studios from home and abroad. They match the organisation with the best and the latest app offer to their liking.

AppLab in transformation
In 2015 Cinekid started the special project AppLab, a well-organised, but critical viewing guide for parents regarding the offer of apps of today, bundled in a Cinekid app.

Since 2018 so much has changed in the digital structure through which we all, and especially children, find our digital products. Thus, we go back to the basics: a clear page where we bundle everything in new categories and explain what is special about each app, together with a link to the app store or Google Play.

From 2018 onward this page will be thé home of the AppLab selection of Cinekid. The old AppLab app will disappear from the app store in due time.

AppLab online and offline
AppLab can be found physically in the country as part of the Cinekid on Tour programme as well: AppLab can be visited at several locations throughout the Netherlands, such as museums and libraries. Take a look and see when AppLab is near you.
