By remotely monitoring the amount of screen time kids spend on their mobile devices, Screen Time is an iOS parental control app that keeps parents informed about how much time their kids are on smart devices and when they are on their device.

Screen Time helps kids understand a healthy limit… and reduces those all too familiar device related arguments!

This is the Apple iOS parental control app for the parents device. From it you can monitor screen time on apple iPhones, iPads and other manufacturers devices using other operating systems.

Our Free version is free forever. Here is what you get:

• Monitor just how much time your kids are spending on their smart devices...from the convenience of your own smartphone
• Get a ‘Family screen time pact’, to talk through with your kids before (both) agreeing to (great way to help your kids understand)

We also have a Premium version of the app, which actively sets boundaries for your kids screen time. You get all of the Free features plus some really useful Premium features when you subscribe, these include:

• Set a specific daily time limit for your kids screen time
• Instantly pause your kids devices at the push of a button
• Block apps at certain times of the day
• Block all activity when it is time to go to bed
• Restrict activity during school hours
• Create other blocked periods based upon your needs
• Receive a daily summary of what you’re kids have been doing on their smart devices.
• Set your kids tasks to complete so they can earn additional screen time
• With our monthly, 6 monthly or annual subscription, you can manage all your kids and all their devices. It’s all one price.
• You can share the management with other parents or grandparents as you wish. There is no limit.

All new customers will get a 14 day free trial of the Premium version. There is no obligation to go Premium and no need to provide any payment details until you decide to go Premium.

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!

It’s good for control


So I gave my niece a phone for her safety and communication wit me . And so she can have fun also ... but it wasn’t working out wit my sister / her mom .. she’d take my nieces phone away for many reasons ... so I took the phone back cause there was no point in paying for a phone and my niece was using it .. so I got this app and it lets me control when my niece can use her phone ... what apps she uses ... and I can check when she has used them and for how long ... she is not allowed to use certain apps during school ... so I can lock them ... bedtime, no problem .. I control the phone so she can sleep and not have the itch to use her phone ... Complete control of what she does and her mom was fine wit that .. and if her mom texts me that she is misbehaving.. I can lock everything except for the apps I want her to use ... and I’m doing this from across the country ... im in LA / California and she’s in NY ... now she can have her phone and I can FaceTime wit her and I can feel happy knowing she has a phone for any emergency too ... great app 👍🏻

I’m a kid

So I’m a kid and I think that this app isn’t bad. I just think it’s inconvenient at times. For example, it blocks me out of my phone when I have and hour left and I spend that last hour I have on my phone trying to get my apps back. It’s a pain in the neck to have to use your phone for something in school but you are blocked out and have to make your entire class wait for you to do Kahoot (who else knows about kahoot?) I also believe that it doesn’t give the kid any privacy. Your parents can see everything you do if they upgrade to premium. As a kid who keeps secrets they don’t want their parents to know about which have to do with their phone, I’m not too happy about this part.
Overall, I think it is a good app but it needs some tweaking. Parents might think that this is just a moody teen complaining about how the app is terrible, but I just want it to be more convenient during hours that you may need your phone (like during class when needed for a project) or for the kids who want privacy.
