    I have an Apple iPhone and I can see breakdowns on time uses amongst a child’s apps. This app has been improved at least since some of these reviews have been written. It does help to control use on android and Apple phones. Email alerts let you monitor daily reports.

    ScreenTime Labs' Apple app is full of bugs with no real fixes, and is almost guaranteed to frustrate all parties involved, as their website also provides little to no helpful advice for both the parent version and the child version. It is labelled here as free, but in reality will tell you upon installation that it requires monthly payment to function. As for offered services, the only relatively "useful" feature is the daily time limit. It only counts how much time the screen is on for, not which app is being used. It also counts the 5 seconds when the lock screen lights up from incoming notifications, which is a considerable annoyance. It doesn't, however, count time used listening to music with the screen turned off. That one easy get-around can potentially add hours to your child's time limit (if they're a music lover) and therefore render this feature entirely useless. Aside from the constant technical malfuntions, it will only fuel a negative environment surrounding your child and their phone; they may begin to see you as controlling or overbearing, assuming they don't already. They may become anxious about notifications turning their screen on when they aren't using the device, or even just about using their phone in general. At that point, why would they have a phone at all? They aren't using it to its full potential. You aren't allowing them to. Why waste your money on this "service" when you could simply take the device away? If you are looking at this app as a last-resort-type attempt to get your kids to spend more time with the family, look elsewhere. Maybe try inside yourself; there's clearly a much deeper problem if nothing you've done so far to bring your teenager back to ~family time~ has helped.

    Way to glitchy on my kids iPhone 5 and 6. Major pain in the rear to maintain due to lockup’s for no reason.

    Just spent three hours installing and then uninstalling this app. Zemila in their tech support couldn't have been more professional but the app kept on locking access to all apps including itself.
  • Horrible problems with app!

    At first we loved this app. It was working great for the first few months. Now, it has so many problems with it I've take. It off my phone and both of our kids devices. It stopped monitoring their use even though they would be playing on their games etc. Then it would show they used all their time up when they hadn't been on their devices at all sometimes. Barely any help from tech support. I paid 6 mo. Upfront but I'd rather have our money back. Not worth the hassle.
