Put family time back on the agenda with ScreenLimit. ScreenLimit is an iPhone, iPad and cross-platform parental control app that enables you to remotely manage screen time for kids. Overuse of devices has been shown to cause problems with social development in children, and limiting device use can benefit everyone.


Successfully control your family’s screen time with the following features:

• Remotely block, unblock or grant unlimited access instantly to individual devices.

• Prevent over-stimulation with our unique synchronised timer that works across all devices.
• Set a time limit ensuring children only absorb as much online media as you see fit.

• When it's time for school, homework or bed ScreenLimit ‘schedules’ help maintain order, so the day can run like clockwork.

• Turn screen time into a reward, not a necessity, with our unique ‘plans’.
• Teach your children to earn screen time through good behaviour.

• Establish a clear dialogue with your children over screen usage with our instant messaging feature.
• Instantly message children to let them know it’s 5 minutes until dinner or that they need to get ready to go out.
• Children can reply and also let you know when chores have been completed.



“As we have Macs, PCs, tablets, iPhones and other mobile platforms I needed something cross platform that would enable me to set some kinda time limit for my two teenagers… just wanted something effective that would actually limit screen time. This does it well.”

“This is a really useful app for parents concerned about the amount of time their children spend on devices. The fact that it works on all mobile platforms along with Windows PC's is a major bonus for families with multiple devices.”

***** Mumsnet reviewer
”I’ve been using this app for 6 months now to try to keep a handle on my daughter's obsessive screen use. Devices are needed, so banning them entirely isn't an option. This app is passive, it just quietly implements the block. Can highly recommend.”

**** PC Advisor
“Screenlimit does its job well… an affordable service that does what it says.”

Good but not great

Haven’t found exactly what I have been looking for yet. This one comes close but not 100%. Don’t like the fact that if my child turns off his device the timer continues to count down. You have to remember to turn off the timer when your done using it. I can see my 7 year old forgetting to turn off the timer and running out of minutes. This will cause an argument over whether she really did turn off her iPad or if she’s just trying to get more time.


It’s a virus! Don’t purchase!

I installed this on my child’s iPad and payed for the annual subscription. It worked well for awhile but then the apps would not reappear no matter what I tried. I contacted their tech support and they had me try a number of things including removing ScreenLimit from the device... still nothing. They then said that it must be an Apple bug so they can’t help me. This response is unacceptable since it was clearly the ScreenLimit app that caused the problem. I can’t even redownload the apps because AppStore is gone. I hope Apple will remove this from their store until they can get their act together and stop wiping out devices.


Like it

screenlimit is extremely useful. The timer works very well and does what it says on the tin. I have set the timer for my children and told them to come upstairs when 20 minutes are up. The roars of outrage after 20 minutes were a joy to hear!
