Excellent environment for my kids to play with my phone. Feature request: When exiting the shell, please kill all the apps that were launched from the shell. After the shell closes, I often find I'm stuck in a screen in a game and it's fiddly to escape. Also games in the background are potentially bad for my battery life.
Have this app installed on a tablet that my 4 year old uses exclusively...very simple interface and it works very well. I have had no glitches where my child has been able to circumvent the sandbox and access any apps that I did not want him to. I found the cost of the Pro version very reasonable and I have purchased. Would be nice to have a remote access feature to change the settings but it really isn't necessary for myself as he always plays in my presence. All in all...a very useful app for anyone with young children.
Nice, simple to use and effective for our 3 year old. A bug is that the time-based lock out screen seems to come up even when it's an allowed time.
Part 1. Purchased pro (12$ AUD) and widgets for audible and Google play don't work, can't get a refund because it uses in app purchases instead of separate app instances... Part 2. When I tried to change settings, it got stuck in a permissions loop and now I'm busy trying to uninstall the app remotely because it's effectively bricked my phone. Part 3. It turns out is no longer possible to uninstall an app remotely from the play store so I had to erase the entire device using the Android Device Manager... brilliant.
Good app but add one feature more add unlock reminder means after set password hide password enter mode and reminder time to show password to unlock on parent mode and this is optional feature of parent mode and normal feature dont delete both style add
I use this in conjunction with CM Security Master because that application has an app locker. (Set it up to always need pin) My son was able to switch users with kid's shell and also get to my notifications with certain games. This Kid's Shell (free version) is the best app of it's kind that I've used. With apps like this, always have a background app lock application in case. The best combination for my son to safely use my phone. Thanks very much!
