Almost: great concept, too buggy It's a wonderful concept. Locking the phone so the baby can play but not mess with other apps. It's engaging for my little one. He really likes it. There is/were no ads in baby mode, only in the control section. That's great. However, it's too buggy. It won't close out and freezes the phone.
Here's my hack to exit I love this app but the newer versions haven't worked as well on my note2 phone as it once did on the original s1. I find however that tapping the back button after doing the exit pattern seems to consistently work for me. Safest app to keep my 2 year old busy for a bit and not mess up my settings and loose phone data. Older siblings still love it enough to argue over who plays and for how long.
Used to love it... Like everyone else I used to love this game. It kept my niece and nephews quiet and entertained. Now it's just a pain. Whenever I try to close it a grey screen pops up that will not go away. Even when you try turning your phone off! I found that if I just hit a whole bunch of random buttons it will eventually go away. In my opinion it's not worth it. I'm uninstalling if this does not get fixed soon.
The app is great, the ad is NOT!! I have had this app on multiple Android phones and have absolutely loved it for years. Knowing I can run it and not stress about my kids deleting something or changing something. Now I'm not so sure. I noticed that when closing the app, there is an ad for a TV show rated 'TV-PG14' and it shows a scene between two men that I feel is completely inappropriate for children under the age of 8. You just lost a loyal user. "Nice" lack of judgment on what ads you select to run. Now I have to find something else.
Does not put default launcher back or give the option to do so. When you launch the app, it will ask you to set it as the default home launcher. This allows it to stop your child from exiting it. But it does not reset the home launcher to the original setting. So you have to close the app, bring up settings, change your default home all to be the launcher you want, then you can continue with your life. Could be resolved by having toddler lock ask the user what launcher they want to use on exit. Good idea. Not so good implementation.
Trouble My two and a half year old grand nephew can unlock the toddler lock. He gets on my manage apps page. I don't know how he does it but he does it every time. I can't make it do it and I've tried. I've had the game installed for over 6 months and he loves playing with it but recently figured out this override technique of his. Help! When this is solved you will get 5 stars. (Finally figured out what he's doing to get to the app manager, He's pressing and holding the home button!)
