This new addition will allow parents to block access to cartoons and games on Kindle, until specific goals are met, which could be reading time spent reading, and it could also mean only allowing access to parent-approved educational apps, TechCrunch reports.
The software, built into its line of Kindle Fire devices, is already capable of setting time limits on things, like games and videos.
Vice President Peter Larsen said that this feature removes other non-educational content from the child's FreeTime library, until their goals are met.
Amazon has categorized all the content in FreeTime's collection and the top 10,000 most popular kids' apps on Amazon.com, like kid-focused apps, books, games and videos, as "educational" or "entertainment".
