  7. 7. Windows Phone – Kid’s Corner • These are apps that I deemed safe for Logan to play with. • After adding them to the Kid’s Corner, I came in and arranged them. However, once he figures it out, Logan can rearrange them as well.
  8. 8. Windows Phone – Kid’s Corner • This app is Elmo Calls – shows audio and video calls for kids. • There are in- game purchases for more messages from Elmo.
  9. 9. Windows Phone – Kid’s Corner • Suppose Logan got into this area and started purchasing things… • Or at least got this far and clicked “ok”
  10. 10. Windows Phone – Wallet • His purchase fails, unless he’s figured out my PIN on my Wallet app. • Wallet keeps track of your payment methods and allows you to require a PIN for purchases.

  16. 16. Windows Phone – Xbox SmartGlass • You can easily select to run one of the most recent run apps from the recent list.
  17. 17. Windows Phone – Xbox SmartGlass • Xbox SmartGlass best performs when the Xbox and controlling device are on the same network. • You may see this message if you try connecting to your Xbox over the Internet rather than locally.
