The Maily iPad app is an email app geared towards children. Although it is becoming more and more obvious that touch devices such as smartphones and tablets have a huge following when it comes to children, when it comes to communicating digitally, they are left in the dust. The reasoning behind this neglect is not necessarily illogical considering that many young children can't yet read or write properly. Nevertheless, the Maily iPad app shows that there are alternative ways to teach children the etiquette of email.

A secure program that ensures children are not exposed to spam, ads or, let's face it, creeps, the Maily iPad app allows children to interact with loved ones through a palette of colorful markers, stickers, fun backgrounds and drawings.
