    The apps order, which appears here is the most popular for the child on the home screen.
    Those who have more than one child, probably know that you can't have more than one kid's mode for a phone; Samsung wants you to buy a device for each child. If you have a small Samsung smartphone, you can have one phone for each child depending on whether both Mum and Dad gives their phone to the child to play with.

    Samsung does have this disclaimer that I am not going to read the entire thing.
    But essentially it says that you as parents are responsible for making sure that any app you install is proper for your child. This is because those apps sometimes get through, and sometimes the Samsung makes mistake and parents have different standards. Other parents have no standards at all. You can tap on' Do not show again', when you tap for the tools.

    You should not mind issues in Samsung Galaxy 5 kids mode.
    It is unfortunate, but that is how it is. If you want to add more apps, you need to use the kid's store. We have a separate tutorial on How to use the kid's store.To come back to kid's mode, you can press back button or home button. Press on the home button, it takes you straight to the home kid's mode screen.

    These new install apps will show as a present and the child will be happy when he sees it, and when he open it up it will be a great joy for your child.Another advice DO NOT tap on the present of the child, he may be extremely upset to them because you missed the present and it would take you as you saw 4 or 5 min.
    to get the present back.
