This app has solved all my issues with my son and his tablet. I can reward him with time on it, set a time limit per day so I do not have to worry or constantly monitor him. And it shows me everything he does. He didnt like it at first but now that he isnt stuck to his screen he has found the joys of playing with toys again and creating things, plus playing with friends and family. It helps him realize screen time is a treat and not a necessity. Great for kids who need rewards and limits. And easy for parents!
I Love it, however my son does not. I can monitor the amount of time he uses on his phone, give daily chores, block certain apps and get instant notifications, and the daily summaries are good. The only thing, he has found away to use the internet and it does not appear in the web search area.
This app is actually really great. Weirdly, even my kid appreciates the limits it sets for him and doesn't resent it. The developers work really hard to keep on top of things and the customer service is excellent. Since my son doesn't have data I have to remember that (obviously) remotely pausing his gaming won't work when he doesn't have a Wi-Fi signal. The newer updates have remedied certain previous issues. I am pretty careful with money, but really glad I invested in a year's subscription. It is totally worth it for us.
I've used screen time for years and pay for monthly usage. Some reason though, I can't contact anyone through the app and I can't control what apps are unlimited during the stupid custom schedule thing. Schooltime blocker worked great. Everyone I turn off the limit now it turns back on. Very annoying. What's up guys?
would give five stars but the program gives no notifications for the child before the daily limit is reached. Even though the 5 min pre-warning is selected in the settings. This makes the kid frustrated, understandably. I've been in contact with two guys from Screen Time support but they gave no working solution. Only to disable and re-enable the 5 min warning, and to uninstall and then reinstall the software. Two kids in the family are suffering from the same behavior, one having a Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) and the other one a Huawei P10 Lite :(
As a parent, I cannot say how much I love this app! My son can't say the same though *evil laugh* he does appreciate the extra credit chores you can do to lengthen the time though! His room has pretty much stayed clean since I downloaded this 😂😂 Love Love LOVE!
