  • Piece of garbage!!!

    By Azer55555
    This app has more bugs and flaws then any app I have ever seen!!! Every time they have an update, well hell you can assume so many things are going to start to go wrong!!!! The idea of the app is good but, but I don't think any of them know how to properly design an app. If you get this..... All I have to say is GOOD LUCK, and hope you didn't need to do anything better with your money!! If I could give then negative stars, believe me I would 😫😫😫😫😫
  • Too glitchy!

    By concered_dad
    This app is a great concepts if it work effectively. I have had my daughters phone on lock mode and she is still about to have full access to her phone. And with her being at a very influential and curious age she was found on YouTube and google searching items that the app should be blocking with the context blocker! Fix the problems and work effectively and I would happily give this 5 stars!
  • Really great app

    By Jason Willson
    This is a wonderful tool for parents. It stops so many conflicts. It’s easy to use and makes sure our household rhythm doesn’t get disrupted by iPads. I really like their email reports too.
  • Really helpful app

    By Sing4YourSupper
    Great that they can block individual apps now. Been waiting for this for a long time! Generally I still really enjoy using the app. It makes it very simple to keep a lot of different devices under control at the same time.
  • Worked great till update

    By Imelissa1
    Worked just great then they updated it and now my kids can’t even get on some games I have to turn the vpn off for it to work right.
  • Horrible app

    By Loading......21
    My sons found a way to stay on by turning off the WiFi. So they can still use offline apps and games. EDIT thank you for responding to the instant response. For that I will put it at 3 star
  • No connection

    It doesn't let me have wifi cause of the kidslox VPN and it keeps putting me in lockdown mode for no reason (lockdown mode doesn't let me play games) but otherwise it's good.
  • I had high hopes

    By Magilla_Smash
    I paid for a 6 month subscription the idea of the app is amazing and when it works it’s nice but I’ve caught my son playing on his phone several times while it was supposed to be on lockdown mode. If they can fix this problem and possibly add a grounded button that would be nice
  • Great concept

    By Dawdy531
    After putting the iPad in lockdown mode from my phone, I was on the iPad testing this app. Some things wouldn’t work but a lot of the apps did :/. When I manually locked the iPad, all of my apps disappeared from my iPhone. Super great concept, hope the bugs are fixed. Like having the ability to lockdown remotely just wish it would actually work.
  • Shuts down my daughters phone!

    By Nikalove80
    I want to love this app but it always locks her phone permanently. I have to reset her phone to get it open.
