  • Great app!

    By Vestonli
    This app worked great most of the time for controlling screen time. The only reason I no longer use it is because my son figured out how to turn it “off” somehow while at school so he could play on the phone at his leisure. I couldn’t figure out a way around this so sadly I had to cancel my subscription.
  • Terrible execution

    By FirmFiasco
    Various bad things about this app. DO NOT RECOMMEND!
  • Nice interface but flat out didn’t work

    By SDave-uk
    Perhaps the hour of time I devoted to the app was insufficient but it was a disappointment. It paired with the child device but never was able to change modes. It doesn’t even remove the child device to allow a reset for troubleshooting. I suppose I could have called tech support but that’d just be more time. If it doesn’t work out of the box; on to the next app.
  • Great for teens

    By Snowmash
    This has been a lifesaver for dealing with my son when he doesn’t want to listen or tell me what’s going on when I can tell something is up. I pretty much warn him if he doesn’t do what he needs to there’s a level of consequence associated with access to the internet using his phone. Just today, he ignored me twice about cleaning up his room and taking dishes to the kitchen, and putting away his laundry. The second time I asked and got the irritated “I will”, and no response after 5 min, I locked up the phone and two minutes later sure enough he comes out with the dishes and says he’s cleaning his room. No fight. Before turning it back on I check to see if he did what he needed to. No more arguments, just results. Thank you!
  • Silly

    By jsfnviunweifuhiweuhfiuwefiu
    The app is quirky and complicated beyond reason. The only functionality I needed is to be able to control the amount of time my child could use per day. But when the trial was over - it suddenly switched to 4 hours and to change that I would need a subscription. I do not know what Apple is thinking not including something that simple in iOS.
  • Do not

    By Datmarshmallows
    Please do not download this online games do not work on this app
  • Bad

    All the parental control apps which allow device owners to delete the profile are just painfully useless. Guess nobody is a bigger control freak than Apple.
  • It just doesn’t work

    By bummed on this app
    I paid extra to block certain apps and it doesn’t work at all
  • Does not lockout my kids!

    By Nicteomom
    Both my boys figured out on their own how to disable the app. from their phones through settings! What is the point of paying for this app. If my 13year old can figure out how to disable?.... There is also a glitch by which an app. can be forced to remain open by holding it down for a minute before lockdown is scheduled.
  • I love this app!

    By brturner847
    Set screen time limits for diff days of the week. Set limits for individual apps. The child restrictions for safari and YouTube are very strict! I can control everything from my phone! Plus, it’s only $3.99/mo after the nice and loooooong free trial. I love this app!
