Boomerang provides powerful screen time controls. No more forgetting to take away kids’ devices at bedtime or arguing with them. Instantly time-out or grant access right from your phone via our parent mode remote control. Set the age ratings for all content including Apps and be in the know of your child's location.
Boomerang Parental Control’s Popular Features:

Add Safe Browsing to Boomerang Parental Control:
▶ SPIN Safe Browser - get our free safe browser which is safer than the stock web browsers plus it enforces safe search results and images via Bing, Google and Yahoo search engines. All web history can be reviewed via our app's reporting feature in Parent Mode. Via our Boomerang web dashboard, you can also configure what websites to block and categories to limit.
NOTES AND TIPS
● Applying a bedtime schedule, time-out or age restrictions will hide apps from your child’s device. When those restrictions are removed, apps will return in alphabetical order and not go back to their original locations (ie: custom folders). This is normal behavior for iOS devices.
● Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Boomerang does minimize the use of the GPS when not being used for events such as check-in and setting changes.
● All commands and location updates require an internet connection (Cellular and/or Wi-Fi).
● You will get notified via push notification and email if your child removes the Device Profile. Currently, no method exists to harden the Device Profile so do have a chat with your child that you will be notified.
● iPhone 4s is not supported due to its smaller screen.

Ratings and Reviews
Boomerang is awesome
There was an issue where it was failing to load after the last update but they promptly corrected the issue and all is working as designed once again! Great app for keeping my daughter on track and only able to be an iPad zombie for certain hours of the day.
Update: thanks for updating your review and glad things are working again!
We didn't catch this crash when we tested but were able to replicated after a few users shred this. We just release a new version that fixes this. Please update and let us know if all is back to normal for you (of course we would love an updated review!)
Do not even bother
Absolutely trash! Just want it off my phone and my children’s phones
