I need to regulate my nieces screen time on an old phone of mine that she uses to play games. The only option I’m given as far as what kind of device I want to add is a school monitored one. Am I missing something? I read through the description before downloading and did not see if this is strictly for school devices and if it’s not, how do I select something different? I’m not sure if anyone will be able to respond to this or not but I would very much appreciate some clarification please. Also, I don’t know how to rate this, seeing as I haven’t been able to utilize this app at all yet but taking my confusion and the user friendliness in consideration, I’ll give 3 stars. Will update with a proper review if/when this issue is resolved.
- cheers

App not reliable. Too many glitches

This app has been glitchy from the start but I gave it more than 6 months. There were sync errors, and many other glitches. Getting customer support was terrible for weeks until I finally got someone who spent 2 hours with me (yep, 2 hours) and I had to re-set my daughter’s phone TWICE. And finally it seemed to work for a few months (mostly) - there always seemed to be some sort of glitch (like if I cut off her time it would take 20 minutes to register on her phone that I had done it).

Right now, even though my daughter has plenty of time on her phone and it’s not scheduled to turn off yet for bedtime, she can only use 4 apps (as if she has run out of time or it’s past her bedtime). And when I tried to submit a ticket to customer support doing that glitches out!!! It literally erases the ticket and gives me a url to nowhere.

Oh, and there is a very easy way for a savvy kid on an iPad to get around the time restrictions (especially if they’re using apps that don’t require internet) - just turn off wifi and the device can’t connect to screen guide so time doesn’t count.

So that’s it, I tried but it’s just not worth the hassle for an app I have to pay $30 a year for. When it worked it was just the thing but frankly it is unreliable and glitchy.

Glitchy but good

Before the was working just fine. Now, I don’t know why but the app isn’t even appearing on the iPad. The device has a time limit and it is not locked. Since it has a time limit and there is no screen guide app, we can’t access the iPad without disabling the iPad. Can you please fix this.

Update: the app is now appearing but when we open the app the screen is blank. A minute later it says safari cannot open this page.
