    What apps are included on Pinwheel?

    We have selected 50 therapist-approved clean software applications that run on your Pinwheel Phone. You don't need all of them on the phone, and certainly not at the same time!Our parent tools allow you to select the apps that you want for your child and the times of day that these apps are available. There are a few apps that are always installed, the phone (which is limited on who it can contact also by Pinwheel Modes), text messaging (similarly limited), the calendar and the camera. If you'd like to know more about Pinwheel's Operating System Product, please click here.

    What if I want more apps? 

    You can request to add additional apps to the Pinwheel library. Pinwheel is based on Android, so there are certainly many compatible apps. However, every app we add to our library is available for all parents to provide to their children, so we are quite careful on which apps we will allow. We will let you know within 24 hours if your app request has been approved or not. If there's an app you "must have"please go ahead and request it now at this link.

    Tell me more about the hardware and how this Beta Program will work.

    As a tech company, the Pinwheel Operating System software is our main product, but of course software needs a phone on which to operate! The hardware is a brand new Google Pixel 3a device which costs $279.00 (the exact same as it costs from Google's website). We will also include a FREE case for kidsfor our early supporter customers. You will receive an email to select your phone color (black, white or purplish) and your kids case, as well as pay for the hardware about 30 days before your shipment goes out.
