Cif the Web

Designed to "clean the web", this iPad app removes inappropriate words and blocks access to illicit sites while children surf the web. The app combines a child-friendly user interface with a blazing-fast cleaning algorithm to keep the web surfing experience snappy and responsive.

Winner of the 2013 Campaign Big Gold Award in the Grocer, Soft Drinks & Household category.
