SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - February 11, 2014) - SquareHub™, the private social network designed exclusively for families, is now available for Amazon® Kindle Fire™ tablets. This release makes SquareHub the only family social network that allows families to exchange messages, share photos, coordinate schedules, manage family tasks, and location information seamlessly between Apple® iOS, Android™, and Amazon Kindle Fire devices. In an era when technology often separates family members, SquareHub brings them together via the smartphone or tablet that is most comfortable to them. Amazon customers can download the app for Kindle Fire and other Android devices in the Amazon AppStore for Android™.
"More and more families tell us they want to buy a tablet or smartphone for their kids, but they're concerned about privacy and letting them loose on the Internet," says SquareHub co-founder Dave Cotter. "SquareHub on Kindle Fire is the perfect solution. It gives young kids the social network experience and features they crave -- messaging, photo sharing, digital rewards -- with the safety and control parents need."
"Kindle Fire is already the best tablet for kids and families -- and with SquareHub, it's even better," said Peter Larsen, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. "Like SquareHub, Kindle Fire was built from the ground up with innovative features, like Kindle FreeTime, to give parents peace of mind about their kids' use of technology."
"When I learned about Kindle FreeTime, I decided to buy three Kindle Fires instead of one iPad for my kids," says Shannon Braddock, SquareHub user since May 2013. "With SquareHub, the Kindle Fire is the perfect device for my 6- and 10-year-olds. They're now sending messages and sharing photos with the rest of us on SquareHub, in a safe and controlled way."
The Perfect Family App
SquareHub is changing how families communicate, coordinate and share. Whether they're young families with children starting to explore technology, older families with older kids constantly connected via their phones, blended families coordinating plans or families sharing across multiple locations, SquareHub brings everyone back together.
Simple for parents: SquareHub eliminates virtual communication clutter by providing a single application for one-to-one and group messaging, scheduling and photo sharing -- simple and easy for everyone in the family to use.
Safe for kids: SquareHub offers safe, private social networking for kids and teenagers by letting them send individual or group messages and share photos in a private network of family members. An easy-to-use check-in feature that includes location details gives parents peace of mind and kids more freedom, online and off.
Fun for everyone: With features like the "Family Bucket List," families can store lists and share links to restaurants they want to try, movies they want to see and activities they want to do together. SquareHub also includes drawing tools to enhance photos and stickers, filters and a star chart for giving and receiving praise.
