Parents concerned that their iPhone and iPod touch-touting kids might be visiting unsavory Web sites now can install an application that will help them. It’s called iWonder Surf, and it’s available for $17.99 from the App Store.

iWonder Surf lets parents filter site traffic, disable a device and more. You can find out if your child is surfing the Web during school hours, and disable the device’s Web access from any location. You can also view traffic and control Web surfing permissions from anywhere without having to have physical access to the iPhone or iPod touch.

The software reports what sites have been accessed on the phone or iPod, along with date and time, allowing you to take actions including blocking the site or filtering specific kinds of content. It’s based on the Safari Web browser.

System requirements call for an iPhone or iPod touch running iPhone 2.2 Software Update.
