Description

⭕ IMPORTANT! ⭕ PLEASE FOLLOW THE SIMPLE SETUP INSTRUCTIONS, SEE BELOW, OR TIMELOCK WILL NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY AND YOU WILL WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Does your child use their iPod/iPad/iPhone too much? Do you want to limit the time they spend on it?

TimeLock allows parents to set a daily usage time limit on their child’s iPod, iPhone or iPad. It automatically disables the device when that time limit is over and resets the timer every day. Once installed and set up, TimeLock is completely autonomous, which means your child will only be able to use the device for a set time each day without your intervention.

FEATURES:
‣ Set a daily time limit on any iDevice to limit how much time the device can be used each day.
‣ Your child can start and stop the timer at any time during the day so the time limit does not have to be used all at once.
‣ When the timer runs out, popups appear constantly to effectively stop your child using their device.
‣ The timer is reset automatically each day.

PARENTS CAN:
‣ Customise the daily time limit.
‣ Turn off TimeLock e.g. if the device is being used for homework or GPS navigation.
‣ Reset the day's timer if the device is shared between two or more children.
‣ Create a 4 digit passcode to protect the parent options.

⭕ IMPORTANT! ⭕
SETUP INSTRUCTIONS:
In the new iOS software a couple of small changes in settings are needed for TimeLock. On the icons screen, open the settings app and tap notifications. Tap TimeLock in the list, then on the screen that follows:
① Change the Alert Style to Alerts
② Turn Notification Center off
③ Follow the simple instructions when you open TimeLock

Thank you for using TimeLock.

Good idea but poorly implemented

Daddy Dan G

Making sure the child stops the clock every time they stop using the iPad and then leaving the device set to time lock screen so timelock doesn't kill the battery by popping up notifications literally every 3 seconds does not work in the real world, especially with younger kids!
Do some proper real world testing please!

Make the app fully automatic so it stops the clock automatically when the screen is off and stops sending notifications every time you start the clock to remind you to stop it again gets very tedious even for a 6 year old. The current version is notification mad, annoying and unusable so is being deleted. I'm going to try the other parental time lock on the apps store and hope it works better than this one.

Great

Both kids obsessed with iPad mini's since Christmas, difficult getting them to agree to ration their use due to number of games etc. We can now limit the kids to an hour or two a day. Installed this following both sets of instructions, including ones on apps store and ones supplied with app. Put simple it works as exactly as required and kids cannot switch it off or bypass, great app for 69p.

This app worked well, after I followed the set up instructions. The kids have been great about it. They have a daily time allocation and soon figured out how to stop and start the timer to spread the time through the day. We are uncompromising about increasing the allocation - no extra time!
