The app has some pretty good parental control options, but it could be improved. I'm not a parent, but I've been using the app for security because the Nintendo Switch doesn't have a password system. This way if my Switch is stolen or lost, I can lock down the system with the app to prevent others from using it or selling it. Also, it's nice for tracking play time.
I'm not a parent so I didn't get this app for parent control, I got it because there's no other way to protect my Switch. No lock screen, no password nothing. This app kinda fills in that role and it does it well. Only thing I want is the option to place a letter password like I have for my Sonata 3 only then will I feel completely secure. Overall great app!
Nintendo Switch Parental Control App is the best app I have on my phone. My son is probably regetting he showed this app. I am in control of how long he plays, and the fact that I can (and did) disable the chatting feature is a plus for a parent of young children. All gaming devices should have this type of app.
So far it's the only way to track play time, but it only works after the point it was set up and only tracks each play session. I was hoping for an hour count of total time played. So I can show how long it took me to complete breath of the wild. Maybe they will add that feature to the switch itself like the playbook app on the 3ds.
I really like the bedtime restriction part of this app. I have a 11 year old who likes to get up after everyone else is in bed and play..so restricting access is fantastic. I do have a problem with the play timer being able to only temporarily be disabled for myself, but that is just a minor work around...i wish there was a way that you could set timers for each person and not overall.
Really happy for this app. I would have given it 5 stars if there was a way to tracked by profile. I have two children so the limit goes off because her brother previously played. 5 stars when u can track by profile, or give a discount on a second switch. 😂
Implemented bug fixes.
