Ratings and Reviews
Works like it should
I'm not sure why people are finding apps crashing using this app. We have not had this trouble. It does seem to take apps out of folders and move them to the home screen. I haven't checked to see if that has been fixed yet or not. Overall it works like it should. I have my son's iPad set at 1 hr/day 3hr/day on weekends (he's 6) and then I have various "tasks" set so he can earn more time (20 min extra for unloading/loading the dishwasher, 10 min for remembering to do his homework without being reminded, etc). So far it works perfectly, he uses up his time and either finds other activities to do or quickly earns some extra time so he can finish a show he was watching. You can also use the play button to give some special time whenever you want but that time keeps running when the screen is on regardless of whether or not the kid is actually using any apps. That might be what is confusing some people on how it keeps time. If a kid shuts the app down it will also block all of their "fun" apps until it is reopened ;)
I do wish that there was a "parent override" on the child's device. Some way that a parent could allow/extend access to the child's device without being connected to wifi, maybe by entering a passcode.
I also wish the kindle version would be fixed. I really would like to have this running on my daughters kindle fire!
Thank You ScreenTime
Recently bought a Samsung tablet for my 7 year old for Christmas. This would have been his 2nd one as it was intended to be an upgrade since his previous one was not working anymore. He's a straight A student and all around good kid. Nevertheless I found the app ScreenTime and decided to download a few days after he received the tablet. Had no idea the web search feature would go back all the way to the first day of him using it. You can see all, even the searches they delete. Saw that he had been looking at very inappropriate things for his age, so needless to say he no longer has his tablet as I took him along to return it! I thought he was ready to handle it, but unfortunately he was not. Our kids are very curious, so even the simplest search can lead to things they are not ready to see via Internet. Had to have a lengthy conversation and remind him that mom and dad are your source of truth for everything. So a Big Thanks to the creators of Screen Time. This is a must have for all parents with kids they allow to have devices. Only thing I regret is not downloaded it sooner.
Love this app !
Grateful Parent This is the answer to a modern dilemma. We can now limit and control our kids' use of tablets and phones. Setting a daily limit is easy, and I love the ability for your child to be rewarded with extra time when they have completed set tasks that you can specify using this app. For instance, "I have tidied my room" earns 15 minutes extra, "I have done my homework" earns another 20 or however much you feel is appropriate. You can also block certain apps outright, set limits for bedtime and lights out. Parents also have the ability to block all access to the tablet remotely when it all goes pear shaped! I have remote access to the settings of this app from my phone and laptop from wherever I happen to be - it doesn't have to be at home on the WiFi. Kids also grudgingly accept that it is a good app as the alternative for them would be not to have a tablet at all! I would ignore the spate of 1 star reviews - they seem to be from disgruntled kids. As a parent however, I think it's amazing. Good Job Screen Labs!
