User interface usability is specifically designed for children: on iPad first seven allowed sites have a dedicated button in the home screen for a one-touch immediate access, and other allowed sites are in a popup list.

After these hours a screen lock appears, that can be unlocked by the parents by typing the password, or by waiting the next day for automatic unlock.

Need Password Recovery
Unable to find any documentation or support for resetting or recovering password. we didn't use the app for a while, so when we returned to use time couldn't remember password. Awaiting response from Purple Digital....
It can be a bit time consuming to build the list of sites you approve your children to go to but it was worth it. The only issue I have occurs if the child friendly site has subpages that drops the key extension word that I have approved. Other than that - perfect. I used the restrictions area of the settings on the ipod and disabled in app purchases, safari, access to the itunes store, etc etc. Then dragged this app button to where safari use to be on the lower main line apps. This is now the only browsing available on my child's ipod.
I love this app! I only wish Apple would have built their "in app" browser to do the same thing this does. That way people couldn't get around the parental lock on safari. This app is great for a guy pursuing purity!
I only gave the app four stars because it only works in landscape mode and you can't enable full screen view. Add those features and it is five stars.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
