    With the latest update I can no longer edit a phone number from the contacts? When you hit the edit button all the the information is below the on screen keyboard with no way to scroll down to access it? Don't the developers test this stuff before the deploy it? Just awful.

    Ugh. Not what I imagined at all. So I set the time restrictions but then a custom restriction pops up and I can’t remove it no matter how many times I pressed remove. It would be nice for there to be a “pause” button in addition to the restrictions.
  • Not accurate at all!!

    This app has potential. Mine keeps crashing every time I try to use it. Also, I blocked some social media but allowed Instagram yet Instagram wouldn’t work—my daughter could see text but no pictures.
  • Almost not worth it!

    I WAS very excited about this app, and being able to see what my child is doing on her phone; however, the activity report never accurate. Not even close. The only reason I keep the app at all is because it’s the only way to modify restrictions for content with family base. This app needs a lot of work. Verizon normally impressed me, but this is one area where they are failing miserably.
  • Verizon could have done better

  • Heads up on kids being able to delete app (IPhone Only)

    For anyone with an iPhone that is complaining about their child being able to delete the app go and set the restrictions on their phones *Settings, *General, *Restrictions ,set up a password only you know and not the child. Then set it to where you cannot delete apps. You can also block any adult rated websites, or make sure they can’t change any account settings & much more. I have mine where they can add apps just not delete them & also in our our iCloud I set up family sharing so that they have to send a notification to my phone for me to approve any app purchases. Hope this helps!!
  • App Timing Out

    By APP TIMING OUT
    I am very disappointed with this out. As I am viewing and looking at the different calls etc the app just shuts down as if I closed the app and it returns back to my home screen. I then have to reopen the App Again to look at the content inside the App. It never stay open no more then 1 or 2 minutes before the App Times Out. I have to reopen EVERYTIME. This is very frustrating. I want to be able to close the app myself when I am finished, not the App closing on me before I am finished. I have deleted App and reloaded and the same thing still happens there need to be a software update to fix this bug!!
  • Update GLITCHES!!

    When I am on the app it just closes after about 30 seconds!!!! VERY FRUSTRATING!!! Your update was not helpful...at all. If you can’t stay on the app then it doesn’t matter what improvements you make since I can’t see them because it instantly closes and back to home screen!! Ugh!!!! Please fix this ASAP!!!!
  • Not bad, but definitely not great

    For some reason every month the app decides to apply the data limit for my daughter to MY number as well. I've turned it off. I've deleted it. I've cancelled it. It keeps reapplying itself. This is a major issue for me because I use my phone for work and it has blocked me in the middle of working on something via my web browser. I am looking for a better app, but will continue to use this one until then.
