Really good but... Great app. Exactly what I was looking for. However, one of the pro features suggests that if your child accidentally closes the app, they will be able to reopen it. This is true unless your child presses the "task manager" button. You are shown a message telling your child to hold a button if they want to close the app or do nothing and they will return to the app. I would expect then that not pressing anything would return you to where you were in the app but instead it restarts it...
Works well on my phone but sometimes freezes on the Tablet. He can also exit user on the tablet and go into unsecured users or create other user profiles. Whfn signed back into his own profile, it starts on the unlocked main screen even if Kids Zone is locked already. We've solved That by putting a password into his profile so we sign him in, and open Kids Zone for him. I'm not sure if a better workaround can be done without rewriting the Tablet program.
I usually do not pay for apps. This is the very first app I was willing to pay for (because it locks kids out of home screen/settings/etc that some other apps cannot do). However, then I discovered it cannot prevent kids from installing new apps from Google Play Store. This should be one of the main intentions of this app. Defeats own purpose of blocking kids in that regard. If this major flaw is fixed, I will proudly pay for the app and it will be my ultimate choice for kids blocking.
Like it, have a feature request The timer doesn't stop when the screen is off. So even though my kid is not using it the timer keeps going. Also, would like it to resume after a timeout period. For example, he plays for an hour , the timer goes off, then can't play again until two hours go by, and the timer can start again
With the latest update this becomes the best Parent Control App on the Market. It is very easy to use and selecting what apps are available is a breeze. All of the Apps will displayed on one screen and you cannot leave that screen. With the latest update the settings icon is removed so that you won't be able to remove the App. Also in the Kids Zone settings you can now select the option to have the Phone available - it won't be a selectable app but will appear once the phone is locked and Kids Zone is engaged. You can also set it so that if the phone is rebooted -removing the battery, the Kid Zone app launches blocking everything right after reboot. It is the most secure and stable app that will block the internet, the Play Store, email and all other social media apps. You can allow texting and the phone and whatever apps you choose. But if you are looking for a solid way to lock down the internet and unapproved apps this is the way to go. Note that the phone option is only available with the Pro -paid version. It is just a few bucks and worth purchasing. The pro version also lets you set more than 8 Apps which you are limited to in the free version.
Was about to purchase pro versions..........used it for about a week, and now adds are popping up while in kid mode. Worked great before that! The adds a inappropriate considering I only have kindergarden games on here. Understand the need to make money but at least find a way to filter the adds
