Gro Flowers is an app designed with young children in mind. The fact that no reading is required during the use of the app is one such example. Another example is the protected section for parents on the main screen. This section is protected by the simple method of holding the button for a short amount of time and is only available when entering the app. Developers may want to consider making this protection a bit more difficult to bypass considering that it does take the user out of the app. Parents will not need to worry about their children accessing in-app purchases or ads in the use of this child-safe app.
