ParentKit - Parental Controls for iOS
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
ParentKit is a breakthrough monitoring app for parents. Using this app gives parents the option to set up a schedule and parental control for their child's device. The best part is that you do it from your own device, which acts as a remote. You can now schedule your child's usage on safari, purchased apps and shows, all from your own device. This app allows you to choose what your child can use their device for and when.
It’s simple to install, and easy to use. Once the app is downloaded to the parents device, it will prompt you to set up profiles for any children's devices that you wish to manage.
Once a ParentKit profile is installed on a child’s iPhone, iPod, or iPad, parents can set up a schedule of their child’s access to Safari, purchased apps, and media, on every device ParentKit is enabled on. Each device can be scheduled and controlled separately, all from the parent’s “remote” device.

-When the schedule takes effect, the apps are not deleted from the device, they are just hidden from view.
ParentKit may be for you if:
-You catch your child watching movies when they should be sleeping.
-Your child is playing games when they are supposed to be studying.
-You allow movies after dinner but no more Internet.
-You allow Internet for studying but want to turn off apps and movies.
-Your child is too young to be searching the internet at all.
The control is all in your hands.
What's New in Version 1.6.6
- Had a problem with updating a child's photo? This has been fixed!

Just what I was looking for!
I wanted something simple that would allow me to create a schedule to regulate when my kids would be able to use their tablets. Eg, not between certain hours during the week but allow on a different schedule on the weekend, and it does this perfectly. Easy to set up remotely, and even allows for easy parental override from my phone to allow tablet use during blocked time when circumstances warrant. The limits apply to all apps equally (no special schedules for some apps versus others) which might be a need for some, but not for me. I am happy that the tablet is non usable after bedtime and during homework times. Very happy with this app and plan to purchase subscription once the free trial is up. My kids on the other hand are not so happy. Lol
Kind of love it
So I want to love this but due to a few issues I can't quite love it. The concept is great and being able to switch off all when my child loses electronic privileges is great however for some reason the device doesn't automatically switch on in the mornings. This means every morning after the allotted time my child is in my room asking for her apps. This defeats the purpose of the time and to activate the apps I have to log in to parentkit and hit save again. Some mornings this is a two second thing, others it won't log in and it can take me up to 15 mins to get it activated. As you can imagine this delay causes unnecessary disagreements! I did communicate with the developers and they can offer no explanation of why this happens and suggested it may be due to the age of the child device. 😕.
I had NO idea how MUCH the iPad was on at night!
My “threenager” wasn't answering the question “do you use your iPad after 10?” honestly. When I would look in on him, he’d appear to be under the covers and asleep. The first night I activated parentkit, the 10:30pm shut-off date I had set came, and 15 minutes later I hear him up and around the house. By 3am he is still awake. I asked what was keeping him up, and he said, “I’m bored.” Child, you are not supposed to be entertained at night, you are supposed to be sleeping! He wakes up a lot easier now. LOVE it. I hope they add some extra features over time. Be sure to always press the “save” button when you make changes, some don’t save automatically.
