Seems like after reinstalling it is. Bumping to 4 stars. Previously: used be great, now half of applications is recognized as "Google App" and distinction between "Ok you can listen to music" and "You cannot watch youtube" is lost. Limiting overall time is still useful, but I wouldn't have paid for this app if it had only that option.
In my kid's phone, because it was acting up, I tried to reinstall. Would install but automatically became parent's screen without asking whose phone it was. Had to create a guest user to bypass this problem. Monitoring would not work once it becomes offline. Even when the "setting" is blocked, it will let the kid disable wifi.
Well since my son has Internet access at school he just Googles how to disable the program for his S5. Kind of disappointing. Best it does is shows me after the fact. Been using this program for over a year and it's gotten better but it's far from perfect.
Ever since the latest update my son has been able to disable his dinnertime app. He does this by getting onto settings from the left too corner of his phone when the phone is put on take a break or bed time. Can someone help me with this issue??? Thanks.
This works great. I love being able to see what app my child is on and have control over the device even if it isn't currently in my hands. It would be good if you could restrict access to turning wifi on and off and use longer/more complicated passwords but it is a great app!
App seems to do its job, a couple of features missing that would be nice, like daily usage allowance per app. The phone number registration is the most frustrating thing for me, it kept looping around and wouldn't let me in. Also how do you register this if you are using a tablet? I hate registering things to my phone number because I change carriers frequently. The one time purchase is what sold me here, competing apps have ridiculously expensive subscription fees.
