unrestricted access to internet - great app but not safe for kids

This is a wonderful app but without proper safeguards its just not for children. It allows full access to an unfiltered internet browser through the lyric search. Regardless of whether or not you have turned off Safari or paid for a internet safety browser, this opens the door to an entirely different unrestricted browser. When I contacted the developer, their email stated the following:
Thank you for being a part of the SoundHound community. We certainly respect that parents want to let their children use our app whilst simultaneously
having control over the content. Though we do not currently have a way to alter these settings, I have forwarded your feature request to our team. Don't worry, your request will not be ignored. We take user feedback and suggestions very seriously and are always working hard to keep our application the best music discovery app on the market.

Perfect for olde kids because there is no way to control content!
