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.
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.
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. 😂
It's a good start, but there's a lot missing here to make it really useful. No way to set user time limits, About all I can do is set a daily playing time limit and a bedtime alarm. I can override the limits with a PIN, but it shows the PIN on the console screen when I'm entering it, which kind of defeats the purpose unless I frequently change the PIN. The app interface is also pretty clunky.
Needs some work, but it's getting there. Total time played for the month would be a nice statistic to have on hand. Needing to calculate it is needlessly time consuming.
Great concept but the inability to manage individual accounts prevents stops from giving this app 5 stars. I have 3 kids that will want to play but I need to limit their times based on who is playing, not how long the console has been active.
Implemented bug fixes.
