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:
▶ Bedtime schedules - set school night and weekend schedules when your child’s apps simply disappear
▶ Time-Out your kid’s device for any duration, anytime via our Parent mode remote control
▶ Grant Access to your kid's device for more screen time
▶ Review and request your kid’s most recent location
▶ Block apps - set app age ratings, limit accidental in-app purchases, block access to the App and iTunes stores
▶ Installed apps - review what apps your child’s using
▶ Communicate safely within your family with our Family Messenger feature.
▶ Pair and Control all your iPads, iPhones, iPods and other mobile devices into your account securely using your email and password.

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.

● 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.

Developer Response

Thanks for the 1 star review - can we assume you are a child that's having a bad experience? If you need help with our app, please email us at



Makes our iOS devices kid friendly!

Poor performance.


The app doesn't work unless the latest update is done all the time. It also seems to leave YouTube and Netflix running past bedtime. Not working out for us.

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback - did you connect with our support team at to share your experience? There are some reasons that this could be occurring:

1. Does the device have an active internet connection? (possibly yes if YouTube/Netflix are being streamed but could be offline content).
2. Could the internet connection be lagging at the time bedtime is supposed to occur? Our schedules depend on a good connection as Apple doesn't allow us to locally monitor - everything is done via our servers
