Does the job, has good control - both schedule and total time. And easy to add more time. 2 things they could do better: 1. Allow controlling from an app on an android phone 2. Don't make the control only usable with a remote. On a shield ATV often the main usage is through a game controller, so should have worked with it too, but doesn't

Hi Guy, Thanks for your feedback. We will definitely consider it for future updates. TVUsage app is already compatible with the game controller. You can use the DPad in the game controller to navigate. Please drop an email to support@tvusage.app for help. Thanks

The only working Parental control and usage tracking app for Android Smart TVs. Premium features are worth it for the price. Good service with quick response time by the developers. Helped me control access to apps and overall TV usage for kids. To ensure it works well, disable the Energy Optimisation setting for this app so it can run in the background always.

I have an androidtv 7 (sony from 2015) and I'm not able to start the app due to usage permissions. I've followed the step on using adb, everything seems to work out in the console but after I restarted the app (and even the tv) nothing changed, still the "usage" screen is showing. Additionally I do not have special access app section in permissions. Any suggestions?

Hi Jano, Apologies about that. Sony removed usage access permission from their Android TV. It cannot be granted to any user installed apps. They have fixed in their recent Android TV update. But it is not rolled out to all of their Android TVs. Unfortunately, we cannot support due to this limitation. Thanks, Bala support@tvusage.app
