Fingerprint Digital recently launched its kids-oriented learning and entertainment app Kidomi which seeks to differentiate itself from the crowd with a range of music made available by online streaming service iHeartRadio. As Kidomi's exclusive music partner, iHeartRadio is enhancing the new Android offering with a comprehensive soundtrack meant to be played alongside various games and other activities supported by the app. The New York City-based streaming company is likely using the partnership as an opportunity to promote the kid-friendly aspect of its content portfolio which already includes popular stations such as Dora the Explorer Radio, Radio Disney Junior, and Build a Bear Workshop Radio.

Kidomi is presently available for download from the Google Play Store and is a timed Android exclusive, with the firm revealing a browser and iOS version of the service is meant to be released "soon," presumably by the end of spring. The Android variant of Kidomi is also planned to debut on the Amazon Appstore in the coming weeks. The app itself offers a vast collection of reading materials, puzzles, and other types of games meant to both educate and entertain. The platform came to life as a collaborative project, with its content being authored by the likes of Crayola, Toca Boca, Highlights for Children, Sago Sago, and other established creators of interactive educational experiences for children.

Kidomi comes with a free week-long trial, after which parents are given the option of choosing between a monthly and yearly subscription. The service will set you back $7.99 per month or $59.99 a year, with the latter offer amounting to $35.89 in annual savings. Besides unrestricted access to Kidomi's content portfolio, the subscription also comes with parental controls that allow you to manage the amount of screen time your children get on a daily basis and delivers insights into their playing and learning history. Kidomi should work with the vast majority of contemporary smartphones and tablets, being technically compatible with Android 5.0 Lollipop and all newer builds of the operating system. In other words, if you have a device released in early 2015 or later, you're most likely good to go.
