Mobicip Wins TX School District
Thousand Oaks-based Mobicip, a developer of kid-safe, iPhone browsers, said today that it has signed on a school district in Texas to provide an Internet filtering for school-provided iPod Touch devices. Financial impact of the deal was not disclosed. Mobicip said that the Jim Ned Consolidated Independent School District is using the firm's software as part of an effort to send iPod Touch devices home with every high school student in the district. The firm's software is used to ensure that students only use the iPod to access appropriate web sites. Mobicip provides both Internet filtering and web-based monitoring of iPod Touch and iPhone usage.
