Difficult Been trying to set up for 3 days it downloads the parent app but won't download the kids app in the kids phone it only shows options for parent. Doesn't send and text or anything close.
I have this installed on a Nexus 4 (CM12.1, so Lollipop) as the parental device; also on two Tesco Hudl 2 devices (belonging to the kids). Unfortunately Tesco updated to Lollipop 5.1 this week and the kid's install no longer works - it FCs, or won't allow activation throwing an exception. I'll email that to you. Would be a 5 star review but for that! Update: developers got back to me, waiting for next update to come along...
Terrible App. It's on a back ward premise of only limiting time instead of giving a short time of use. No idea how it counts time used. I had my son's phone with me, off all day and it said it was used for 1hr 25 minutes.
Great for Preteens! (4-stars FOR NOW) My 11yo is in the height of early puberty, with an attitude and mood swings to match, plus that drive to be independent despite her young age. This app has made it so easy to not only enforce screen time privileges and restrictions, but to allow her some independence in using electronics without us standing over her shoulder. The one thing I wish they would implement for a 5-star is custom breaks, so that we may add more with specific titles than just study time and bedtime (although, those are great!).
Just installed the app on my phone and on my teen's phone. Works well so far. I would like to see the feature to lock the Security Administrator setting on my child's phone without having to lock all of the phone settings. For example, i still want my teen to be able to go into settings menu to set his screen brightness and sound profiles, while still locking Security Settings to prevent disabling DinnerTime Plus as an administrator app on the phone. Is there any way to just lock the security settings? How do I prevent my teen from being able to uninstall it off his phone?
Very good Use it daily to prevent too much tablet time much to my sons frustration, brilliant app works perfectly.
Important update!! Make sure latest app version is installed on both parent’s & kid’s devices.
