    If you're like me you've got Kids Mode set up on your home screen. 3 children under 3 will do that to you. If you're not, your kids are a bit older or you have more patience than me, you're going to tap on the Apps button.

  4. 4
    That's going to take us to the applications folder where we can see all of our applications. Just swipe through until you find the Kids Mode icon. Tap on that.

    We are on the home screen of the Kids Mode application. You can see I've got 4 present icons which are applications installed earlier for my 3 young boys to enjoy playing.

    For those kids who want to add some media, this is a little different than the other apps so I will show you how this works. To start, press the video icon, the bird with the nose.

  7. 7
    I've got two videos already set up here. If you tap a video it will play, and to exit just press the back button. Your child can not delete or significantly modify these videos because they are a part of what you as a part have allowed them to see. This is important because your child loves you, you love your child, and they want to see videos of Mama, Papa, Daddy, whatever it is you call each other. They want to see their brothers, sisters, friends, videos of a pet or a favourite toy. This is how you can add that. You can also add photos as well and we'll get to that shortly.

    Tap the parents icon and enter the PIN.

  9. 9
    Tap on the activity button, then tap on Media.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Like other things, it does take a moment to bring that up. We can delete media by pressing the garbage can icon, tap the media you want to delete and press the garbage can icon again. It's important to know that I can go into the folder and delete each video individually, but if we go back and select media to delete, I can only delete everything. So if you want to delete everything, that's the way to do it, but if you just want to delete one or two items, tap on the folder and you will be able to delete individually. Now I have one photo and one video.

    Now I'm going to go back, and tap on the plus sign to add some more media.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    We have some pictures here and I'm going to tap on Camera because that's where my videos are.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Here's a video I'd like to add so I will select that and I will find a photo to go with it, here is a photo of Spiderman, now we've got two selected, we could select more but two is enough. Tap on Done.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Now I have added some more files and they will upload. Now I have 4 listed in Camera, if I tap on Camera it will show me what those four are. There's my new video and my new picture.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    I'm going to press the home button at the bottom to go back to the Kids Mode home screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Now I can tap on the little bird video icon, and you can see I have a present. This indicates a new video. Every time there's a new video for your child it's going to show up as a gift. Tap it.

    Press the home button again to go back to the home screen. Let's tap on the yellow icon next to the videos icon to see our pictures.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Here, from the top, we have Photos, Drawings, Voice Recordings, and Movies. Let's tap on Movies.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Tapping on Movies brings up our Camera, here we have the pictures and videos. We can swipe across just like we normally would.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    This finishes up how to access your photos. Press the home button to get back to the Kids Mode home screen, then press the exit button and enter your PIN.
