Great App w/ Minor Issues

This app is great for managing and moderating all of my children's game time. Rather than having to constantly watch the clock to see how long they have been playing, on top of them constantly bugging their mom and I to play, I am able to set specific times they're allowed to play and for how long. Now that the app will moderate their time for me by forcing them off after two hours, etc. I can just let them get on the Xbox whenever they want and know that they won't be on ALL day. Yep only complaint I have is that when you add extra time, it doesn't seem to add the time correctly for some reason. It seems like sometimes it doesn't add whatever time they still had left to the extra time that I added. It just simply gives them an hour etc. Otherwise, this app is amazing and my wife and I use it regularly now.

Works Like It Should!

Growing up as a kid I played games a lot (My wife and I still do as well as with our son)…but I also got out and played with friends physically IRL and did other activities that taught me life skills. Nowadays you almost have to force kids outside and lock the door. All in all the app does what it was designed to do and helps limit these digital needle users. Just need to add the app limiter to the family app itself so you don’t have to go online to edit times for individual apps. Then this will be the perfect digital methadone!

Great app for managing screen time

This app has made great improvements. It can manage time across Xbox and Microsoft devices. Child access settings are now all included in the app in one place. It’s easy to add or stop time without adjusting overall settings. You can now check balance, add money and see purchases in the app. The multiple time blocks option is great, and this format is much easier to use than the website.
