    "I wouldn't recommend this app if you are trying to keep your kids from playing for longer than you would like on their device or yours because compared to others this one seemed to have a lot of different flaws and I like the others better."

    "We were concerned our children might be watching things we wouldn't approve of, so we installed this. It functions OK for monitoring, but is very handy for assigning tasks. We're still using the whiteboard on the fridge, but this is good to augment."
