I discovered these parental control applications until recently and I really wanted to give it a try. I installed Qustodio and FamilyTime simultaneously (since familyTime was free, it wasn't a problem). I had my bet on qustodio given the fact that it offered device usage time restrictions. It didn't even come close to what they promised. the biggest problem is that it just hogs the battery on the child phone. The support remedies never helped either. FamilyTime is working almost fine for me. At least it's pretty easy on the battery. The best part is they give me a web-based CP so i don't have to use the app on the phone (i don't even have to install it on my phone even!) and the analystics are it's major hit!!Read moreLess
"Good product for monitoring your child's PC/internet/gadget activity…"
I have been looking for an app that helps me monitor my child's activity (12 yo daughter) when it comes to PC/gadget time, mostly because of her tendency to spend hours on end browsing through social media.
While I've only been using the free version of the app, I've managed to get a good picture of what she's doing (chatting on facebook, hours in which she's active on her PC) I've also found that I can actively block sites that may have harmful content.
My advice for you would be that if you use this app, you might want to discuss with your child beforehand so that he or she doesn't feel like you're intruding.
Overall, it's a great product and I would consider paying for the full package.Read moreLess
