ADDISON, Texas, Jan. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WQN, Inc. (OTCPK:WQNI) today announced the availability of its SafePlayground application for Android Devices. SafePlayground provides parents with a safe and secure gaming environment that can be handed off safely to kids.
On average, mothers have downloaded about 11 apps for their smartphone, but four of the applications have been for the child to use. Forty percent of moms allow their children to play games on their smartphone each day and 35 percent allow their child to use the smartphone for at least an hour each day.
