  • The best monitoring app out there

    By zahraa18
    The app allows you to block everything out on a child’s iPad or phone during bed time or for time out.
  • Buen App, pero generó muchos errores

    By Mariana Guedez
    La aplicación es bien amigable, sencilla de manejar, y súper útil para controlar el tiempo de uso de los dispositivos electrónicos de los niños, pero lamentablemente me genero muchos errores, nunca mostró lo dispositivos controlados, las solicitudes de tiempo que mis hijas hacían no se mostraban en la pantalla a la primera tenía que cerrar la App o hacer logout, y en muchas ocaciones al hacer Sing in me decía: “we are unable to Sing you in” ... por tal razón no compraré la aplicación, no fue muy satisfactorio el período de prueba.
  • Love the idea, doesn’t actually work

    By ochickrj
    I couldn’t wait to try this one. I love the idea and it would work really well for my son. The problem is it doesn’t work. He has an iPad and at least half of his games still run no problem when the time is over. It’s a known issue but makes it useless for me. I hope this is fixed soon and I try it again
  • Great App

    By pbmomofboys
    We did the free trial and then purchased Premium for a year. For parents that are not technologically gifted, this is very user friendly. I really appreciate the way the developer suggests discussing this app with children to help it feel like a benefit as opposed to a consequence. Screen time management is so difficult, and this definitely eliminates arguments. I feel that this company cares about helping children in this technology driven society.
  • Tried it and Nope👎

    By Jax and team
    Easy to turn off, my 10 year old deleted it because it messed up WiFi/VPN settings.
  • Awful

    By ABinKY
    I have used this app for a year. At first, I was pretty happy with it. However, I discovered that many games my daughter was playing were not counted toward her daily time limit. I contacted customer service, and they were unhelpful. Finally, the app quit working altogether. Again, customer service was unhelpful. The final blow was when the service was automatically renewed (over $80), without warning, and when I contacted UnGlue support within one hour of renewal, they would not refund my money.
  • Doesn’t work

    By Julietjuju
    I have tried this a couple times first off it would not hook up my phone to my child’s phone and when it did it only worked at our house once she left the house the VPN would not connect It recorded wrong times and would randomly speed forward when my child had not even been on the phone My Daughter is 14 and was willing to make this work but the app is glitchy and doesn’t work I thought maybe because I was in the free trial that this was the reason but read numerous reviews that said the same thing and that once you went to paid they would not let you stop even if not working so I don’t think so
  • Needs work

    By El Capitan 78
    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.
  • Pedometer Lock

    By Jarik25
    I've been interested in a pedometer lock for myself. I spend too much time on my computer and found nothing. I am the only one who would be using the app on my computer as only I live here. It would be nice to have a parent pedometer lock too not just for children. Android users have a pedstep lock app. iphone users do not yet have one. I'd like to be able to earn my time thru steps directly on my phone. Sounds silly for an adult, but I still study. So I want way to regulate my use as well. Except everything comes with an override especially one that deletes the lock if you delete the app. It would be cool if unglue had a parents phone dashboard to not just regulate the kids time.
  • Terrible Customer Support!

    By Krandy2
    The app sounded great and just what I needed. However, it would not work. It recognized some of the devices on my network but would let me turn on/off their WiFi access or limit based on minutes. I sent 4-5 customer support requests and got no response and no help. Even copied the founder on the email. Horrible customer support equals lost customer. What a shame. Being a successful business can be so easy if you just please your customer base and offer a product that works. I do not recommend this product in the least bit.
