Developed by Tom Galle, with graphics by Antonio Ladrillo, the app allows children to create, send and store emails (all of which can be, naturally, supervised by parents).

To make the app more appealing to children, Ladrillo has created a series of backgrounds, icons and characters, which children can use to customise their emails.

Galle says, ‘Maily allows kids to create emails in their own “language” – with tools adapted for their needs.’
