I’ve got three kids — two boys (8 and 5), and a girl (2). We regulate their access to technology (not sure why, or how best, but we try). And we want to find excellent Apps (in both Chrome and for iPad/Pods), appropriate to their ages. 

So why isn’t it easy to filter based on age? It isn’t helpful to be told that there are tens of thousands of “education” apps. Why can’t I see those appropriate for a 5 year old? Or 8 year old? Then maybe sorted by ratings? 

This seems so obvious I’m sure I’m missing something, but seriously: Why isn’t this easier?
