"An app that motivates my kid to clean his room? I am so in." - Cool Mom Tech

Finally a way to manage your children's screen time!
"Children in the United States watch an average of three to four hours of television a day. By the time of high school graduation, they will have spent more time watching television than they have in the classroom. - American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry"
One of CBS News and Forbes Magazine recommended apps for families.
Screen Time was developed by a dad of 3 young boys who love technology. It was with them in mind that this easy-to-track tool was born.
We understand tv and gadgets are an important part of our kids' lives and can be used to provide educational opportunities for them. At the same time, we want our kids to develop healthy viewing habits and feel empowered by the choices they make.
Screen Time is NOT just a time tracker!
With Screen Time, you can:
* Assign daily, weekly, or custom minute allowances for each child. Allowances can be set to repeat each day or accumulate based on your preference.
* Empower children to earn screen minutes by doing chores and displaying good behavior.
* Encourage your kids to give up those minutes (with a kid-friendly screen) for other activities and rewards. Kids learn valuable skills by saving minutes for delayed gratification.
* Customize and have fun!!! Add, change, or remove tasks and rewards to fit yours and your kids' needs.
Children need a balanced lifestyle that involves a great mix of rich activities, both indoors and outdoors. Let us help you take care of their media interactions.
We welcome your feedback!
Note: Screen Time cannot (as any other app) automatically track your device’s usage or lock kids out of apps or the device itself as it is against Apple’s usage policies. Our app is meant for the involvement of parents in managing and actively tracking their kids’ time. We help create a healthy relationship between parents and kids in dealing with one of the main challenges we have in our highly technological age.

What's New in Version 2.0.3
.Squashed pesky bugs (Allowances not paying out on Sundays)
Great tool to keep track of your kid's "screen time" for their device. I like how you can see how much time they've been on the device. The reward system is good - It's a great way to encourage my kid to keep up on his choirs to get more screen time. Simple and easy to use app.
I love this app. I don't need it to shut itself off. I want to be able to track my kids device time so they still use your time wisely and be a kid! Well done.
Not what I needed
I took a chance and spent the $2.99- lesson learned. It is not a poorly designed app, It is just not what I needed. This app is designed for someone who's kids use their device. NOT if you have a child with a separate device. The timer must be started by the user. Needless to say, I will be deleting.
