Strong Potential

I’ve been using this app for about 6 months now. It has very strong potential as being one of the only apps that I’m aware of using Apple’s Screen Time API. Overall it works well but there is most definitely a bug that blocks any request from my child’s device to install an app. I have it set for both of my kids’ devices to have to request permission to install an app. With Grace installed this functionality is blocked and does not work. I have done lots of testing and as soon as I uninstall Grace this functionality works again. Also, this desperately needs to allow for multiple “controlling” devices. For example… my device is the only device that can control the Grace functions on my kids’ devices. There is no ability for my wife to also be able to control from her device. That is very limiting. Both of these issues have caused me to have to discontinue using Grace and revert back to the default Apple Screen Time. If these two issues could be addressed I feel like your product would be on its way to greatness.

Developer Response ,

Multiple parents supervision is on our roadmap and we’ll be delivered in one of our future updates.

The request install permission issue is a system-level issue. We’ll report it to Apple. It will be fixed in one of the iOS updates.

Please contact us at so we can share up-to-date information regarding your questions.

We appreciate your feedback. Thank you!

Specific contact restrictions

I LOVE the widgets! But with Grace the specific contact restrictions I had in place with iOS screen time are gone. It was really helpful to restrict my daughters time to chat with her friends but still allow her to call me or her dad. Is there any way to fix this?

Developer Response ,

Currently, Apple doesn’t expose the ability to set Communication Limits in the API that would allow us to restrict the contacts. We've sent our feature request to Apple, so we're ready to develop the feature ASAP when Apple opens it to developers. We’d greatly appreciate it if you could revisit your rating because it doesn’t depend on us. Please contact us at if you have any other issues.

Blocks Ask To Buy Requests!!!

I only give it two stars because it does do a good job with parental controls not otherwise available on the iPhone. However I had to discontinue my subscription and delete the app on all my kids’ and my devices because, after investigating for several weeks, I realized this app was the reason I stopped receiving my kids’ Ask To Buy requests. The moment I deleted all of the apps, requests started coming through again. I’m disappointed that this app caused the problem because it was nice to have multiple scheduled limitations. I will also say the app often freezes and doesn’t always keep settings saved in the schedules I set. Very bummed that I payed for a subscription before realizing this.
