What is the most adventurous thing you have ever done?
A way to make yourself stand out from the crowd in a speed dating event is to make the girl laugh.
“By the time my daughter started watching videos last year, I realized that if I wanted something [like Cakey], I was going to have to build it myself,” he says.

Instead, Cakey offers a basic interface to You Tube where users can browse through pre-screened video “collections” presented in a film reel-like interface.
Called Cakey, this free app isn’t really a company yet.
It’s more of a personal project Hong is releasing into the wild to help other parents like him.
You Tube has a lot of great content for kids, from cartoons and sing-alongs to kids’ TV clips and toy unboxing videos, Minecraft and Legos videos, and much more.
But the problem with allowing kids to access Google’s You Tube application is that it’s not locked down.
“I used to run a site that helped people make babies,” Hong jokes.
“Now I’m helping them raise ’em.” Cakey is a free download here.
While most parents just yank the phone or tablet out of kids’ hands in horror, Hong had a better solution.
Being a technologist himself, he simply built and app to solve this problem.
While the app comes pre-stocked with videos to keep your child entertained, parents are also able to build their own collections in Parent Mode.
