Couldn't detect usage after update Qustodio had been consistently updating me on my children's phone usage. However, it has not been able to detect anything after I've updated the app on my children's phones. There are "NO ACTIVITY" from their phones for many days. Please fix this issue. UPDATE: It has been months since this review in Oct2016. And there is no reply from Qustodio.
Not Accurate The usage times are reported as 6hrs ahead of time. Using the device at 12 noon (CST) will show usage at 6pm. Also, the reported devices in use are sometimes switched on the parental control app. You MUST go to the website for accurate information, but the times are still off. I'm not yet confident that this is the best purchase.
Works perfectly! I've tried so many different parent apps and most are invasive or don't work right. This one is great! I can check things if I need to, I can set time limits or no access at certain times. It can also protect from inappropriate sites. It helps give me peace of mind!
Go to their website. That's all the app does. Cut out the middle man and just bookmark their website on your phone. It will save you the time of downloading their app, it will save some memory on your phone, and be just as effective. As for their 'form reply' about this is just the beginning....why not just take the time and release a decent product from the start? It has to be easier than replying to all the lousy reviews. There's no excuse for an app this useless.
Why Bother - Have to Visit Main Portal I was very excited when this company released the app. I was assuming I would not have to visit the family Qustodio website. All I can do is view my children's activities. I cannot adjust time limits or do any of the other amazing features that the website has. The app is useless if all it does is let you monitor your child's activity.
Parents App isn't really an app The kids app is good, and it works. The iPhone app uses a vpn which slows down the phone. The brand new parental app however is not an app. Every single feature in the parent app just takes you to a browser and opens the program in the browser. That's lame.
