  • VPN turns itself off!

    1
    By TGDBatman727
    This app is problem prone. VPN randomly turns on and off on kids phones, cause unknown (I don’t think they could do this, and shouldn’t be able to if they can). Monitoring is interrupted periodically for hours or days at a time. Sometimes I am notified, sometimes not. Unable to fix or even troubleshoot problem for various reasons, including sometimes VPN shows as enabled and functioning on kids phone, but on the app on my phone I see ‘turning on (daughter’s) VPN’ message, and it hangs there forever. Couple this with the fact that this app doesn’t enable me to limit screen time, only internet time (kids can still play games not requiring internet) and it’s simply ineffective. Don’t waste your time or money.

    Is there a way to block texting when time is over as well? Or other apps like games ect I just downloaded but was easy to install love the extra minutes for chores ect
  • Nice when it actually works

    We’ve had so many issues with this app. Either the VPN goes down which makes it impossible for my son to get online at all, or it slows down the WiFi, or now, the kids app refuses to connect to the parent app. Hopefully the new parental and screen time controls coming to iOS 12 will make these apps unnecessary soon.

    The app has an amazing and easy to use interface. It works well for controlling internet access. But the app does not work for blocking apps which defeats the purpose on managing screen time. Once my kids have used their allotted screen time, they can continue to use apps and games that don’t require internet access. I’m sure Unglue will figure this out eventually. But for now, the app is not ready for prime time. I guess it’s back to Qustodio for me which has a terrible interface. ***Update*** I noticed that unGlue added a feature that blocks apps after screen time is up. Though this is definitely a step in the right direction, unGlue is still missing the point of managing screen time. Right now if my “screen time” is set for 7am-9pm, my child can technically play games for 14 hours straight. unGlue treats “Entertainment time” and “Screen time” as two different things. What needs to happen is that apps stop functioning after the allotted “Entertainment Time” is used up. And then the child can earn more screen time based on chores. Screen time should just manage the time frame from which entertainment should be allowed and not treated as two different features.

  • Chores galore

    My teenage daughter is extremely motivated to do chores. She wasn’t doing anything before. I made up a ton of little things like putting clean towels in the cabinet and she does it. Thank you for this great app.
  • Would not block cell data usage

    By JohnR Virginia
    The app turned off my daughters WiFi when she hit her usage limit, but it would not stop her from using the same entertainment apps via cell data. Blocking WiFi usage alone is meaningless.
  • Cannot configure

    I have tried several times to configure my daughters phone even on WiFi just keeps getting the message configuring profile. I gave up after 2 days of trying and deleted the app. I will stick to the OurPact app.
  • Parent suggestion! 2 things.

    By Sunny smiles 11
    I just downloaded this app. Easy set up. Loved the features! My suggestion is this though. Make the items (chores) manageable for parents. I would like to enter my own chores and activities to earn screen time. Also I would like to adjust that time. I don’t think 15 minutes of screen time is worth it for just taking out the trash. That means my kids would be only doing that chore. There needs to be an adjuster that can limit how many times easy chores are done maybe too. Or at least the option. Every family is different so having the ability to adjust types of work, work loads and time earned would make this a 5 star app for me. Thanks for all your efforts.
