Great app needs fine tuning This has helped me reduce my own screen time significantly. It needs a little more refinement though. My two gripes are 1) if there's an app open when you turn off the screen, the timer keeps running and 2) you can't add the dialer (actually making phone calls) to the list of "anytime apps".
Love this app Hands down the best and easiest to use and understand free app for screen timing. Squish has become a household name for my 6 and 3 year old. (PS- I found it has conflicts with the app Clean Master. I uninstalled clean master and it worked again, yay!)
I use this app as a protection tool to prevent my kids from going astray onto inappropriate content. Its an awesome. My kids have discovered a work around however. On galaxy tablets you can swipe down to bring up notifications then switch users to a guest. The guest will be unaffected by squish and they have unrestricted access to all the features of their tablet. Update: This hasn't been resolved yet. To avoid this app swipe down from notifications and change the user to guest or create another profile.
So far so good. If I am on a phone call will that go against my time? I tried to make it an anytime app but phone was not an option. And if my phone is in sleep mode or just blocked will I miss phone calls?
I use this to limit my son's time on noneducational apps but give him free reign on the educational ones. However, now whenever I try to add an "anytime app" I just get a message saying "unfortunately Squish has stopped" and I get kicked out. This issue has been going on for quite a while.
Initially I wasn't sure if it was working Seems to be working flawlessly. all setup is done on the device,not remotely, but it otherwise works great.i haven't tried to see if I can break it... yet. I'll update if I succeed.
* Prevent Squish and other apps from being uninstalled by default by preselecting Uninstall app, Settings and Google Play while on-boarding and to prevent install of new apps.
* Added backup verification code in case user forgets PIN / tries to update PIN when offline.
