    The “free” app works for about two weeks then does NOTHING unless you subscribe to the premium for $100/year or $12/month.
  • Doesn’t work

    By TomMcL71
    Not sure what is limiting but if limiting nothing is what your looking for this app is it
  • Did correctly record usage

    By NotaWriter1234
    I installed the app on both of my daughters’ iPads. I was receiving notifications when they reached their entertainment usage limit, and I thought it was all good. Then I began noticing that, even when my oldest daughter was not using her iPad, I was receiving notifications about her usage. I looked at the list of what she had been doing online (keep in mind that during the entire time I was reviewing she had not used her iPad, and for more than half the time it the battery had been dead). It was recording her visiting internet sites and using apps that she doesn’t even have on her iPad, such as Snapchat and Instagram. I contacted the support team via email, sending them detailed explanations of what was happening and screen shots of both my device and hers. Initially the support team seemed like they were looking into the matter, but they continued to tell me that my daughter was obviously doing what UnGlue reported she was doing, regardless of the fact the iPad was out of battery during some of the reported usage. I continued to press the issue because I had paid for a year subscription, and I either wanted the matter resolved or my money refunded. Eventually they stopped responding to my email. I have cancelled my subscription, but it never worked correctly. Be aware if you install the app that you may get incorrect reports of your children’s usage. You will also not receive support if you need it for that sort of issue. It was a very unpleasant experience and a huge waste of money.
  • Great app idea disappointed in it

    By bjlightening
    I love the concept of the app. But it doesn’t work when the time is up it still lets him continue on his entertainment. I have tried many different settings and still can’t get it to work. I am really hoping that we can get this app working.
  • Flawed

    By Dhjsjsjsjjsjsjsnxkxjxndj
    Didn’t do it job, when I emailed unglue multiple times I never got a response. Unglue wasn’t picking up any of my daughters time I usage and would stay on 30 mins past bedtime.
  • I love this app.I couldn’t disagree more with the last review

    By nocritisizing
    I assume that children are different so different circumstances and different interest could lead you to believe that unglue only has authority over about 200 apps stated in the review. Well my child seems to be using those exact apps because I can control her entire phone 24/7 365. I can see basically any app she uses and how long she spends on that app. She can request more time or do things to earn time. I found that the best time is when she runs out of time and the phone is useless to her she has to ask for more time. I can’t say I’ve been waiting for this app because the choice to get my child a phone is new and worrisome, but this app makes me believe that screen time can be somewhat safer with a parent monitoring every little detail.
  • Not a Parental Monitoring App

    By None68467
    Maybe this app is just for iPhone addiction. I was trying to find a parental control app I could trust to block porn on my child’s phone, turn off at bedtime, and set a time limit on technology time. I don’t know how well it’s blocking porn. It does seem to disable the internet at bedtime, but not other capabilities and apps. I set a 90 min per day limit. I know she has been on her phone all day Sat, Sun, and Mon, and it always says she has time remaining because it doesn’t count time used texting and whatever else she does on it. The usage report on her ipad has been blank for a week. The usage report for the phone says she uses about 10 min today on various websites, but it’s obviously not an accurate reflection of her technology time. This app doesn’t do what I need.
  • great product . . . needs new features

    By akasammd
    unGlue has a great user interface for adults and doesn't patronize your kids. It works very well at creating a market where you can trade kid tech time for chores and it's easy to use. The Home Monitor function can work for you if you are pc-based and your kids use their devices in one main place. I'm looking forward to subsequent versions that will address the large group of parents for whom this is not true. Much better than the aps that your provider gives you -- and the best ap that I've tried so far.
  • Makes my child’s iPad useless

    By HarryMatthews
    I deleted the VPN off of my son’s iPad and then deleted the actual app (per the directions), but his apps continue to be blocked according to the schedule I set up initially. I then deleted off of my phone, but the apps continued to be blocked. I reinstalled the app on my phone and went to settings and selected “turn off”...STILL his apps were blocked. I am beyond frustrated and wish I would have never installed this nonsense on his iPad. I literally have to grant him permission to watch anything after 7 PM or before 7 AM and the software is not currently on his actual iPad. A little scary this company can control when they are no longer installed on a device. Don’t waste your time or patience on this app.
  • Split screen

    By kirakay86
    So I loved this app till my smarty pants daughter figured out how to do a split screen on her phone. So she has the unglued app saying she’s out of time, then usually YouTube also split on the same screen. Is there anyway to fix this? I feel like I waisted my money on an app that isn’t doing what I paid for.
