Screentime Ninja automagically blocks the device after a pre-set amount of time, but lets the kid earn more play time by solving math problems which are tailored to his/her school curriculum.
If the child cannot solve a problem, Screentime Ninja will show how to solve it.
Each kid has an individual profile configured by the parent. As a parent you define how much play time each kid earns by solving a problem, how much play time needs to be earned before it can be redeemed, when and for how long each kid can play on a given day.
★ Screentime Ninja was featured on TV and was named the app of the day by ABC Action News:
★ Automatically pop-up a math dialog after the playtime is up, pausing the game that was running at that moment.
★ Can get back to the game only after solving a pre-set amount of math problems.
★ Block the device before and after a specific time of day.
★ Can uninstall the app only knowing the parental password (which is set up during the app installation).
★ The app will automatically re-launch if device was shut down and restarted.
★ Math tasks: addition, subtraction. Multiplication, division and word problems are coming soon.
★ Configurable maximum amount of time spent on the device (like an ATM that only lets you withdraw up to $X each day regardless of how much you got on your account, this option sets the max amount of playtime per day, no matter how much time was earned. The earned time never expires, but can be redeemed only up to that limit every day).

This is the first, beta version of Screentime Ninja. Please let us know what you would like to see in the next releases. What areas of math you think your kids need help with? What features you would like us to add?
Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
We believe this is the best parental control app for android since it re-directs the kid's motivational force to a better cause.
