The bedtime timer is a lifesaver for our special needs kid but the play limits are not very useful. It would be awesome if you could add a "Timeout" button that could be triggered manually in the app. Basically just the same functionality as the bedtime timer (with the countdown from 5 minutes) but you can trigger it whenever you want in the app and then set how long it stays off. This would be much more useful than the play limits IMO. Thanks for considering.
Needs separate settings for different kids. An hour per kid is better than three total hours. If the oldest kid does not share, he will take away the other kids' play time. Also, a default setting for new accounts should be introduced. And a distribution of play time over the day would be an improvement (as Microsoft has for the Windows platform). It makes no sense to allow a kid to resume playing at 06:00h, if you want it to only play in the afternoon.
Very useful app when I'm out and get a call that the kids aren't behaving or needs to get off the device. I can set time limits and such, but it would be awesome if there are time limits between different kids. Great idea to do parental control separated from the console via smartphone. It blows my mind sometimes. Thank you Nintendo and an even higher Thanks to the developers. ^-^
This app would be so much better if you could have a PIN for the parents accounts and different time limits for multiple profiles. This app is kind of pointless for families with more than one child. I really need to PIN protect my account too so my kids can't play under mine and mess with my saves.
I dont have kids. I just wanted something to control my console in case of theft. Would be nice if you could lock the console and get location (via ip) and current ip from the system. I understand this isnt the intended use but considering my phone costs less and has much better security. Id think theyd add features like that
This is a decent app but it could do with a bit more development to make it great. It would be good if when the days play time was up they had 5 mins to save and exit their game then it would prevent any further play rather than just running an annoying alarm. Also a manual button to stop today's play would be good. Something's a play ban makes for a good punishment when your child is being naughty and ignoring your warnings.
Implemented bug fixes.
