Reward Based Screen Time Automation

Genius App Manager is an app designed to get children off their mobile devices and moving again. We allow the parent to set a daily step goal and or chores for their children.  The parent can manage apps that will be timed out until the desired step goal is reached by the child.  No active playing, exercising, or completion of chores, NO APPS!

We offer many custom setup options for the parent to make their child’s goals obtainable, fun, or challenging. Once the step or task credits are accomplished, the selected managed apps are then available.

Genius App Manager allows that parent to set children’s goals through the parent device. Once the goals are set, they are reflected on the child’s device.

We also offer additional options, including setting up Black-Out times for homework, bed time, family dinners etc.… Black out times override step goals and allow the parent to take control of their child’s screen.

Genius App Manager is innovative and scalable. We will be coming out with many new features regularly to ensure you have the most positive experience of getting your kids to take a Technology Timeout

Genius App Manager was designed by parents for parents. We, the founders, are parents of a household of children. With the same problems we faced in our household, we learned those problems exist in yours as well. Our goal was not to punish our children by taking their phones away, rather teach them about screen time moderation and accountability. By taking our children’s phones away as punishment, we have now lost the ability to communicate with our children, track our children and give them access to a secure way to communicate in an escalated situation. There are also many health-related benefits for your children by using this app for a healthier lifestyle.

Please enjoy our app and please share with your friends and family that also experience this epidemic problem. Thank You for choosing and trusting Genius App Manager as your solution to getting your kids out and moving again!

A successfully structured family life

The shelter in place life hit my household like a tornado. School was now full time at home and my twelve year old sixth grader, who has been self sufficient maintaining straight A’s since elementary school, was now distracted by puppies, baking temptations and the lovely digital life. Although I’m a stay at home mom, I found it difficult to monitor her every minute of digital school time. Taking her phone away wasn’t an option because it was often needed during school. In addition to digital school she is a competitive dancer and was doing zoom
classes for this as well. All of the distractions became overwhelming and Genius was a discovery that became my saving grace. I used it to set goals and establish a schedule by using their Genius Screen Lock system.
Word is out that we will have some sort of hybrid digital school system this fall and I will faithfully be implementing the Genius Screen Lock into our household. Although my eighteen year old is out of school, he isn’t too old for me to lock him down to get him to commit to certain duties.
I highly recommend this app to bring sanity and structure into your household.

A fun way to teach responsibility!

We have implemented Goya-Move as we began our summer break and it’s been invaluable! My husband and I explained the benefits of this app to our 3rd and 4th graders and taught them how to manage their steps and daily plans. Both kids loved how easy the interface is and they look forward to achieving their goals and earning screen time and new apps! Goya-Move has given the kids a reason to plan their days in a more thoughtful, constructive way and I’m very grateful for this helpful tool! I highly recommend Goya-Move for all busy adults and children!

Great UI for both the parent and child apps

I had to take the plunge and buy iPads for both my kids, 6 and 4, for their new distant schooling etc. I never thought they’d be on devices this young.

The native apple lockdown was to difficult to manage with too many authentication requirements for everything. I enjoy having a dedicated app to manage and somewhat “gamify” how my kids can access their iPads. I highly recommend this app.
