only have high praise for this awesome app

My family have been using this app now for over a year or more. It has such comprehensive features, which have just got better and better.
There are too few apps to help us parents retain control where technology & our children is concerned. This app has revolutionised our whole family dynamic.
No longer do I have to fight to get the iPad from my daughter when screen time is up. I set the daily limits, and when her two hours is up, the device goes into auto lockdown. I say what can and can’t be accessed when she is able to use the device. I can customise what features I allow and when.
Now my child knows if she won’t give back the device I can put it immediately into lockdown mode from my device, rendering her device useless.
She can ‘earn’ more time by good behaviour and doing jobs. It’s now used as a reward, instead of dominating our lives.
It has a schedule I can set for wake up time in mornings, and auto lock down at bedtime so no midnight usage if night waking.
Personally I feel this app should come as standard on all devices so that parents can take control. Also it enables device sharing, as there’s the option for parent & child mode. So I can still use the devices unhindered.
It works by using a private VPN.
Cannot recommend this app highly enough!

Awful time with this app, started out good then let us down for whatever reason

Everything was working fine for a few months, I liked it although it was quite limited. Then it cocked up all the settings saying my son had been on 6 hours in a day when his phone was home and he was at school then it continually did that every day. He was being locked out every day. I queried this with kl so we were asked to delete the apps on both machines and reload. We did this and still had different problems. It wasn’t great and we all got more and more frustrated with this application that we stopped payments for it as it hadn’t worked for a few weeks. Now we are in a circular situation in that we allegedly haven't completely finished properly, so we got back in touch with kl and they asked us to go through their finishing procedures, we clicked their link and attempted to and we got stuck after the email & password was entered and was then asked for a pin, which we forgot, so we keep hitting the forgot my pin dialogue box and it takes us back to enter email & password, and on and on and on. The password which we wrote down was perfectly correct. So now i await their helpline again. I want this sorted but it looks like it has a way to run yet. The only good thing is their support people do contact you, however we are yet to establish closure of this, I’ll let you know. Such a shame, I thought this would be the answer to controlling phone-time.

Get this app now. Spare an extra cash and get all the features it offers. This been my best decision I ever done to getting this app.

When it comes to technology I feel like ancient dinosaur. This app is easy to use. There is step by step explanation how to use it and how to install all the features.
Keeps your kid safe. Sends you all the notifications, all the links of what they watch, gives you feedback.

No more tears or cries over the I pad time. Everyone has their limits.
If you opt in for extra features you can customise the usage for example when I pad goes in lock mode you can leave learning apps accessible to your child, out of boredom they will use those apps and learn writing, spelling or mats.

Whoever came up with this app I solute you, you literally made my day, month, year!!! Thank you!

For the parents I’ll say this: get this app now, I promise you are going to love it! Opt in with all the extra features and see how good this is! If you hesitate just get the basics first. But once you got it I know you’ll opt in for all it offers because this is that good!
