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.
was good when it worked it was great for awhile when it did what it was supposed to. maybe like 4 or 5 weeks in it would run by itself even when baby wasnt touching it. when baby was done using it and i had to turn it off it would freeze and so would every other function on my phone. on restart toddler lock would launch **on its own** and, guess what? would freeze again. so annoying. had to uninstall. also, fix the effing touchwiz thing. i hated having to change that every time i exited the app.
Brilliant simplicity I downloaded this well before I had a toddler knowing it would be a good idea. It sure has been! Great as a little distraction with no worries about sending random texts (as has happened with Android Wear). It has gotten a bit more complicated as Android has updated (I'm on Lollipop). After doing the 4-corner unlock and hitting "exit," the ToddlerLock screen comes back up. When I then hit "back" ("<"), it's all good. Ads only show up as static AdChoices popups anchored to the top or bottom of the screen when unlocked and about to exit (read: when my little one shouldn't have the phone anymore anyway). Maybe offer a paid, ad-free version?
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.
