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.

-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

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
I found this app after the last parental control app I used, Appcertain, starting having log-in issues for days at a time with no explanation. ParentKit exceeds my expectations. I love having individual controls rather than the all-or-nothing control with the last app I used. This all is great so far and it works when I need it to. I've been a customer for over a year and I love being able to schedule when my kids get to use their apps. We adults have a responsibility to limit screen time so kids can have life experiences and not miss out on life.
We love this app. It really does allow me to schedule when my children can use their iPads from my own iPhone. It's very well designed but it does have some limitations. The profile can be deleted but if this does occur, I am notified in the apps control panel. When my 13 year old thought she was smarter then me and deleted the profile, I only needed to threaten her with losing her iPad for good if it happened again once. She got the picture. It doesn't replace good old parenting but it goes a long way in providing decent parental controls. I still give it 5 stars.
