So far so good!

We tried for almost a year to get our teen to regulate her own phone usage to no avail. After many fights and having to remove the actual phone at bedtime we heard of this app. I am in no way thinking the fights are over but at least now we don’t have to watch the clock and ask her to turn it off and then argue with her. It will simply stop working. We are only using the basic version for now, but will definitely consider the paid version if needed so we can turn the phone off during school. Our teen’s school does not seem to fight phone use in class and instead sets aside class time for “tech time” so sadly any regulation will need to be done by us.

My only complaint so far is that the app you put on your kids phone will rearrange their home screen and all their apps every time their phone is blocked and unblocked. Not a crisis but if this didn’t happen that would be great. One less thing for the kids to complain about 😏

Oh and if you are a parent go read the reviews for the kid version of the app Our Pact Jr😆 The reviewers are almost all the kids and reading them made me even more confident that this was the way to go! I laughed until I cried at the kids arguments against this app and how it ruined their lives. Their advice to other kids was to not “allow” your parents to install this on your phone😆 Such an entitled bunch of kids these days!

PS - We also get a kick out of reading through the OurPact Jr reviews.. If those doesn't convince users that our software works, I'm not sure what would! Thank you for the positive review!! :)

Almost Perfect!

mrfilmmkr

I went ahead and gave it 5 stars anyway. I am an iOS developer myself, and I know the incredible amount of thought and work that goes into creating something like this. I have read some of the other reviews and I have to say that most of the negative reviews are just silly. Of course you need an internet connection. How else is the device going to receive commands. Of course the installation is involved.

Honestly though, the installation took me less than 5 minutes - and wasn’t difficult at all. I can understand that some people may get confused - but honestly - you must realize what the developers at Our Pact have created is no easy feat. We have tried just about every parental control app available all to our dissatisfaction. Our Pact accomplishes 95% of what we were looking for.

Having said that, the reason this review is entitled “Almost Perfect” is because there is one thing this app is missing. That is the monitoring of which web sites the child goes to as well as the monitoring of text messages and whatnot. However, the reason I gave this app 5 stars is due to the fact that this app’s purpose isn’t to monitor, but rather to teach children good device habits and accountability as well as personal responsibility. Well done! Thank you for all of your effort and hard work!

What an amazing review. We just circulated this around the office for the whole team to see, it's feedback like this that keeps our team working hard day in and day out. Thank you so much for your honest take on OurPact, and genuine appreciation! This certainly is a challenging space, but we do our best to keep the app as simple and user-friendly as possible. We're so, so happy that we have helped you and your family balance tech. Thank YOU for your support, and for joining us in our mission to keep screens in their place. ;) (Also - PS - We have your mentioned features in our request log already, but we will add these notes as tallies!)

FALSE ADVERTISING

I initially gave this app a 5-star review, because it theoretically does everything I wanted. What they don't make at all clear anywhere on their website or in app descriptions or in their terms of service is that YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CONSTANT INTERNET CONNECTION for any of it to work. I can't create a schedule at home, set it for my kids' iPads, and then let them go to school and have the schedule still work. Which seems like how you would expect this to work, just by common sense. But no, every single change in block/grant status requires an ongoing connection to the internet.

My kids have an hour ride to school each way. I want to give them access to their games during that time, but only during that time. I don't understand why this is so hard to do, but so far I've yet to figure out a way to make it possible. If this app just let the previously created schedule run as planned on the iPad without a wifi connection, it would be perfect and I'd give it 5 stars and pay even more than $5 a month for it.

I do have to add one more thing: all of the people giving this bad reviews saying it is controlling or destroys trust with your kids (maybe most kids writing those reviews?) have this wrong. My children and I installed this app together and are in agreement with our family rules. They understand why they need them and accept that. This isn't about control, it's about helping kids have good habits.

Developer Response

We're so sorry for any inconvenience this has caused for you. We completely agree (1000%!) that OurPact is not about control, but about helping kids establish good habits early on (thank you for understanding this and taking this approach with our software!). Unfortunately, your child's device needs to be able to communicate with our server; sending a remote management command is no simple feat, so unfortunately an internet connection is indeed required. Believe us when we say we wish we could offer management without an internet connection - we understand that consistency is key with enforcing these habits, but there are technical limitations in place that prevent us from offering this functionality. We're sure down the road, your children will have cellular plans which will eliminate this issue, but in the meantime, make sure you send commands to your children's devices before they leave a wifi network, and if need be you can pair their devices to a 'HotSpot' on your device. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact support@ourpact.com; we hope to improve your experience down the road so we can bring that one-star rating up. :)
