I'm am an 11 year old boy and my dad put this on my phone I understand where alot of these parents are coming from its a very useful app and it works well but we are old enough to keep track of our "screen time". I got made fun of cause my friends saw the app on my phone and they were picking on me for the app. Also my dad could make it to where I cant go on my phone for no reason at all so parents before you put this on your child's device how would you act if you had some app on your tablet or phone im just saying look at it from our perspective.
As a kid, having a limited amount of time in my phone sucks. My parents have tried lots of different apps and this is the best we have found so far. The only thing I don't like is that time you haven't used the day before doesn't transfer over to next day.
13 year old here. Quite a few problems, but many more advantages. Very user friendly (for my mom), and easy to understand. Important: If you try to uninstall this, it WILL lock your phone. So don't even try, kids. Overall, pretty effective.
I hate this app lol. I'm 12 and my step mom just put it on my phone. Ya I understand why but, the app only let's me on for one hour!! (And 2 on weekends) but I can admit that teens do spend a lot of time on there phones but atleast I get to have a phone ( considering that non of us have jobs to pay our own phone bills. Ever since she put this app on my phone I have been more creative and active. And I hope I will do better on tests (because I usually get distracted by my phone).but Ya know it's OK.
My mom uses it on me and it ruined my life. Parents, don't put your kids through this kind of torture. I lost one of my best friends because I couldn't contact her and support her when her grandparent passed away. Guess Why? This app. Don't do it. I'm warning you now.
Hahahahahahaha all the kids hate it LOL!!! Don't get me wrong, I'm a kid and hate it sometimes, but I understand that there should be limits to how much time you spend on your phone. Don't waste your life staring at a screen, peepoes. I get mad when my time is up a lot, but because of the good quality and satisfaction of parents, it deserves FIVE STARS. Five stars doesn't mean it's loved. It just means it's a quality app...
Parents be aware, most of the comment-less 1-star ratings are by kids ... Go figure!
