By remotely monitoring the amount of screen time kids spend on their mobile devices, Screen Time is an iOS parental control app that keeps parents informed about how much time their kids are on smart devices and when they are on their device.
Screen Time helps kids understand a healthy limit… and reduces those all too familiar device related arguments!

Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good, but a bit buggy.
(If you want the summary, skip to the bottom) Im a teenage boy, and I admit I used to be way to addicted to my phone. I only ever played Final Fantasy, and my grades were suffering because of it. my parents wouldn’t help, saying it was not their problem, so I took matters into my own hands, only allowing 1hr of game time a day. I would give it a five star review, but like the title says, a bit buggy, sometimes it wouldn’t allow any time, and some days there would be no limit. and as you can imagine, that’s counterproductive when your goal is to STOP addiction. But overall, it worked, when I decided I was less addicted and was confident I could remain unattached to my phone and Final Fantasy, I decided to delete the app, problem was, I had deleted it when Final Fantasy was blocked, and so it remained. I re-installed it, but it still locked me out for the next month, it finally let me back in and I was sure to delete it when I wasn’t locked out, buuuuuut... all my progress was wiped clean. If your kid is suffering from phone addiction, like I was, I HIGHLY recommend this app, but make sure to uninstall it when the apps are not blocked, if you so chose. Sorry for the long text (I tend to write walls of text from time to time. I should build a house out of ‘text’ come to think of it...) but to summarize: good if you or your child is addicted, but if you chose to remove it, do it when the apps aren’t blocked.
Changed our lives
This app works really well. My kids hate it but we love it. It has really helped them to be more aware about the amount of time they were spending on their phones. Now they monitor their own screen time and save time in case a friend might text. The app works really well. We have had no issues with glitches. I especially like the app history and website history. We inadvertently found out our teen was searching some inappropriate subjects. Also it is so easy to customize schedules (different for weekends and weekdays). Being able to pause and add extra time has also been great. We have recommended the app to friends and they have been as thankful as we have to find this app. Can’t recommend it highly enough! Thank you screentime!
can’t swipe up
go to the second paragraph to start reading if you would like to save time. i am 14 and my mother has decided to have me download this app so i don’t spend every waking hour of this summer on my phone. which i understand and am completely okay with. i have no problem having an app on my phone which helps my mom track my use, that is okay. but, i always clear out my apps. always. you know on an iphone how you double tap the home button and swipe up on all of your apps to clear them out? yeah, i habitually do that to save power on my phone and feel less cluttered. most people do keep that cleared out, in fact.
well with this Screen Time app, if you “swipe up” on it to clear it out in your app switcher, it will DELETE ALL OF YOUR APPS. you have to go back into the Screen Time app to get them all back, and if you’re someone like me who keeps all of your apps in folders, or if you just have some folders in general, getting those apps re-sorted is extremely time consuming and ANNOYING. if you, again, are someone like me who has muscle memory of clearing out your apps and can’t NOT do it, i would HIGHLY recommend a different parental control app. this is just bothersome and very, VERY frustrating. thank you for your time, i hope this helped.
