iPad locking/control

I've read on threads before about apps that allow the parent to control iPad access from their phone. Setting limits on what the child can and cannot access and when the
Internet is accessible from the device.

I've always said that my DD can have the iPad as she can self moderate. Except now, at 5, she's struggling. Total removal works but actually I want her to know how to use the technology and feel like she is allowed. But equally I don't want it to become the only thing she wants to do.

Can anyone recommend an app you use to work this that is inexpensive (happy to pay something). Im reasonably tech capable but i would prefer first hand parent review to trial and error at my end!

Our Pact is pretty good. You can also set parental restrictions and bedtime on the iPad (bedtime is a feature on the latest operating system).

Thanks Maitland

That sounds familiar. I'm sure I've read about that one before. I'll go and have a look.
