  • Disappointed

    By Mamma needs an app
    I downloaded the app only to get the message when putting on my daughter’s phone that the unglued kids app isn’t available in the US. The parent app is useless without the kid app. It looked good too. Now hopefully I don’t have to fight about my apple account being charged for an app I didn’t use.
  • No Go!!

    Child download is not in iTunes un the USA. It is only available in UK and Canada. Boooo
  • Worthless

    By parentfb
    Seems to work great until your child realizes all they have to do is turn the vpn off on their phone. Then there is nothing you can do to stop them from using the internet as much as they want to. It is as if I never even installed the app. (And of course by then you will have already paid the annual fee). I sent an email to unGlue support and they told me that having a conversation with my child about the purpose of the app helps. Seriously, don’t they realize that I have already had many conversations with my child about too much screen usage and if simply having a conversation would have worked I wouldn’t have had to purchase the app in the first place. This app is not worth your time or money.
  • Easy to bypass - not worth it

    By paulygiuffre
    I loved this app for a whole 24 hours. My kid found a way to bypass it simply by turning off vpn from the settings. What a joke. Can anyone recommend something a child can’t bypass??
  • Good potential, Terrible execution

    By Lapalomita
    Besides the wi-fi monitoring puck never being available to purchase, all was okay for a week or so when my daughter’s VPN decided to disconnect and vacillate between “connecting...” and “not connected”. Until then, my girls were earning all their phone time from chores, which was great. Unfortunately, because you have to have a computer hard wired to your home network, NOT WI-FI, access was pretty much limitless at home. Well, once the VPN decided to go on strike, it was a week or more of night after grueling night trying to make it reconnect using the one email per day I would receive from Support. They tried, but failed. I finally had enough when I called Support directly and was made to leave a message. Needless to say I have not heard back. I emailed Support to close the case as I was unsubscribing from their $10/month non-service. And guess what?! I don’t get any refund! Not that I had thought I would be offered anything, but it seems pretty wrong that the business doesn’t have to fulfill its claims of how it limits your kids’ phone use but can still collect for it. Save your money and most important, your time.
  • Gaming change in kids education

    By RafaelPal
    Negotiation video game time with my son has never been a problem but following up was impossible.... Until we found UnGlue ! I could not be happier. Not only it is very easy to use , but is also helps teach kids the importance of planning (getting credits to use them later) and the concept of reward for the job done (as we adults experience in our professional lives) !! Thank you
  • Terrible app

    By 556/!3?$3&:
    If u turn off apps it resets the phone screen app position and login info even after i finish completely setting it up. Do not get unless u want ur phone reseted every day. It destroyed my phone and I had to spend 3 hours resetting and relogging in , better just take your child’s phone away.
  • Intermission

    By Mother of boys
    I would love to see where we could incorporate breaks into the all day usage. Example- every couple hours the parent has the option to incorporate 30 min breaks where we can make the kids get up and move. Thank you!
  • Entertainment Time is too limited

    By Pinwheel21
    I had high hopes for this app. It is very straightforward, simple, and easy to install. But after the first day of using it I have discovered that it has a serious flaw. Basically, there are two ways you can control your child’s screen time: you can set a screen time schedule (i.e., the hours during which he/she is allowed to use the device). For example you could say they can use the device between 10 am and 5 pm on weekends. The other component is Entertainment Time. This allows you to specify how many total hours per day your child can use internet-based apps. For example you could set the limit to 2 hours per day (so for example, your child could use the apps for 2 hours anytime between 10 and 5). The problem is that there is a prescribed list of only about 200 apps that are included. So if your child is playing any one of the other thousands of apps out there, it is not included in Entertainment Time and the child could theoretically play those apps continuously from 10-5. Why can’t the developers shut down ALL internet-based apps after Entertainment Time has been maxed out?? Alternatively, if keeping a specific list of apps is needed, can the developers please add them to their list in a timely manner when parents request them? I’m still waiting for the apps I requested to be added to the list.
  • Download trouble

    I can’t get my phone and the kids app to sync. I’d really like to try this app if I can get it to work!
