Description

Screen Time is a simple app that allows you to set limits on the amount of time children use an iPhone or iPad. Set a time length, press start and pass it to you children. After the time expires, a series of audio, visual and on-screen notifications will discourage your children from using the device until you enter the correct passcode.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
-------------------------------------------
After time elapses, the device will receives a series notifications alerting your child that their "Screen Time is up!".  These notification will continue, discouraging a child from using the device until the passcode is correctly entered. They will have to return the device to your to enter the passcode.

STARTING A SESSION
-------------------------------------------
1. Drag your finger horizontally across the numbers to set the time
2. Set the user by tapping on user names in the upper left of the screen. You will be prompted to add a user name before beginning the first run.
3. Press "Start"
4. Pass your iPhone or iPad to your child and let them use the phone any way you choose (e.g. apps, movies, music).
5. Screen Time runs in background and keeps track of how much time has expired.


MONITOR TIME REMAINING
-------------------------------------------
You can get an approximation of how much time is remaining in the current session by switching to multi-tasking mode in iOS 7.
- Double-click the 'Home' button on the device to display recently used apps.
- Screen Time will show you the minutes remaining on the application screenshot.
- The background color changes to provide a visual cue to younger users who can not yet read or tell time. Green (over 5 minutes remaining), orange (less than 5 minutes), red (less than 2 minutes)


NOTIFICATION AND ALERTS
-------------------------------------------
After your predetermined time, a series of alerts and notification will play alerting the child (and you) that their screen time is up.

- A single notification will be posted to Notification Center to all devices that share an iCloud account (e.g. iPhone, iPad, Mac Book Pro, Mac Pro). You will be prompted to grant access to your Calendar when the application first launches to use this feature. You can update this preference in Settings.
- Continous notifications will be presented on the device (similar to text messages). This will temporarily disrupt the child's activity on the device. Notifications continue to fire even in they child taps 'Cancel'. For best results (e.g. the most disruptive to the child), change the notification types to 'Alert' style using iOS' Setting.app.
- A siren will sound
- The camera's flash will fire when on the passcode screen


ENDING A SESSION
-------------------------------------------
The notifications and siren will continue to fire until the correct passcode is entered;
1. Launch Screen Time. You can launch it directly from a notification by tapping on it.
2. Enter your passcode to stop all the notifications.

-------------------------------------------
Screen Time uses iCloud to sync data between devices, allowing you to monitor your child's screen time between devices.

Customer Reviews

Waste of money

I never write reviews, but I could not ignore this waste of an app. After reading previous reviews, I made sure to fix the notification settings so the app could function properly. No problem there. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to set a time limit. After managing to do that, the alarm immediately went off -- every 10 seconds. I hadn't yet even had a chance to handle the iPad over to my child. I tried turning the alarm off, but it did not work. I tried closing the app. The alarm still went off. I tried unlocking the alarm, but it would not allow me to enter the passcode it had just made me create. I had no choice but to delete the app. I would have been better just taking my money and flushing it down the toilet. At least that would have been less frustrating.

It works better than anything else I can find

I would like it to lock down the iPad after the time until I unlock it. My son can keep playing but with an obnoxious alarm going off. It takes my (different than opening the iPad password) password to shut it off. No matter what he is doing the alarm continues and he can not mute it. So......... It's a good app and does the job I can hear the alarm then take it away.

It Works…

Make sure that you read through the instructions to set the app up properly before you use it. It works just like it says, but you may need to change some settings on how notifications are delivered.

For all the people that give this app a poor review, I feel that they missed this step.
