Screen Time Parental Control Reviews
I installed the program on different tablets used by my kids. It worked for only one or two months, then it stoped to function correctly. My kids can play games on Fire tablet which has Screen Time installed. I checked the setting and it clearly indicates that the bedtime was set properly.
It simply failed to work.......
I also found that new programs are not blocked even the program has been set to limit all newly installed programs. In short, the program cannot work properly at all. Though I subscribe one year subscription, I believe that I won't renew my subscription since I am totally disappointed!!!
Works for us!
Great app! My daughter doesn't love it, but sees the value in having a list of things she can do to earn more time. We have worked together to come up with new tasks and adjusted some times. Additionally, we had a lengthy conversation prior to starting Screen Time as recommended! I think she appreciates being included in the process. Customer service has been great, as well. I found the Screen Time folks to be very responsive to the questions I had.
Never worked but locked apps
This seemed like a great idea. Installation makes you hand over total control of the phone. Eep! But even when I gulped and did that, it didn't work. But it did lock away all the apps. It was difficult to get them back. What a terrible app!
Great for monitoring and controlling kids screen time
I love it, my kids will actually do chores on their own and send me pics just to get more time.
Time for kids to be kids again. Sure some time on games is fine but soon after using this app it was back to balls, science, bike and outdoor fun. Great app for great kiddos
great app, gives parents the necessary control.
Using on Galaxy TabS2 for my kid and it's very effective - better than trying to tell her that it's time to stop every time not to mention the times that when I'm not there.
It's a great tool to control and monitor screen time
Does exactly what it claims: let you control which apps children have access to and how much time they can spend on tablets and phones. The interface is easy to use and allows a lot of flexibility in determining when and how long kids have access to their devices.
Best child lock app in iTunes
First off, I don't ever write reviews. Unless they are really good or really bad products. I have tried almost every child lock app in iTunes, this app is hands down the best for my families needs. We set daily limits of an hour for our kids. We can reward them for good behavior or doing chores for extra time, all from the screentime app. There is a fee for the premium service but in my book it's worth every cent. No more yelling at the kids to get their attention. They don't answer me by the second time I called their name I turn their iPads off from my phone. I did have a problem setting up my kids iPads but Oliver was a huge help! Thank you.
Good idea poor execution
I've been overly patient with this software. Initially I forked out the reasonable monthly membership price to keep tabs on child's use of her Android device. Despite it's bugs/glitches it served it's intended use until my daughtre of 9 figured out how to uninstall the software fro Android device. I then migrated to an ipad where the app offers much more opaque control of device use, nevertheless I again forked over money for device management. On the ipad the app is even more buggy, unable to continuously track usage, and tends to make IOS device glitchy. Today my childs ipad device froze with just the screentimes lab logo and blue screen. To get back in I had to hard reboot the device. After log in I was able to simply uninstall the app without admin authorization i.e., my child was able to uninstall the app without permission.
I have this installed on my iPhone and two android tablets(my sons'). I love this. I love the Tasks feature, as well as being able to block specific apps. This will continue to be utilized for many years in our home.
Has it's bugs
I've had screen time for almost a year now. And use it on three different phones. At first it was great. But it didn't take long before the kids found out how to get around some blocking. Like if they have messages, emails, social media posts etc. pop up on their screen to notify, they can click it and continue responding while the apps themselves are supposed to be blocked.
