  • Great in theory but...

    Sadly not so useful in practice. I really wanted this app to work for me. I appreciate the way they handle the concept of monitoring screen time. Their info on how to present the idea to kids is respectful and well thought out. I like the idea of being able to award time for tasks. I like the look and feel of the app. The navigation and set up is easy. I did write to customer support a few times with questions and I did receive replies after a week or so. I have completed the free trial but will not subscribe because it just doesn’t track screen time comprehensively enough. First I had an issue with the time zone because I do not live in the limited selection of time zones they list and it does seem to affect how the app works. The internet time was blocked during our day even tho I selected 7am-7pm for it to be allowed. I assume this is because I had to use a US time zone and I am not in one. Second the app can only track apps that are linked to the internet. So when my daughter plays Minecraft on the app then it doesn’t count toward her entertainment balance. The same is true of any other entertainment app that doesn’t require use of the internet to play. There were too many times when my daughter was glued to her phone using entertainment apps but the UnGlue app didn’t log any activity. I hope that when unGlue figures out a way to extend their time zones and track all time spent on the phone they will let me know because I will give it another try. There is a lot to like about this app.

    My daughter was still able to access her social media after she was out of time. When I tried to block her internet usage completely, it also didn’t work. Regret purchase.
  • LOVE this app!

    Very easy to use. I have 3 kids who all have androids and I have an iPhone. I can manage their time on their tablets and their android phones straight from the app on my phone. I can also see what their time was spent on. At first, my kids didn’t like the idea. Then I noticed that they have become more motivated to do things around the house to earn extra time. I was worried that my kids could bypass their time allotments using their mobile data since I set it up using my home wifi but luckily the time allotment includes the data and wifi time. Very nice set up I have been using it for about 4 months now.
  • Best Tracking app I've found with super support

    Added: LOVING all the recent updates! Thanks for being so responsive! The app support for unglue is second to none. Email support is prompt followed by phone support as warranted. I use the puck which was fast and easy to set up. There were some recent inconsistencies with tracking which app support handled thoroughly. The support team is responsive and patient. I loved the 2 week trial period so much that we prepaid for a whole year! Update email of thanks sent to Unglue Support: Good news and a step in the right direction... I left (son) at home last night playing away on his PS4. Per the app he was already out of screen time, but I figured I was fine with letting him play since parents were having a date night. I got home and he was lamenting to me that his PlayStation turned off at some point while we were gone! Thank you! I think some of what you did on the phone yesterday with me (deleting the duplicates) helped!
  • I love it.

  • Has potential but not there yet

    This app has a lot of potential but it just didn’t do what I needed it to do. I love the idea of entertainment time but in practice, entertainment time did not include all of the apps I needed it to for my kid. Every kid is different and I think for this app to be effective they have to allow for customization of what is counted in entertainment time. The interface was good and easy to use and set up is very easy. I was disappointed by the customer service/support. They sent me lots of emails saying they wanted my feedback but I never got any responses to any of my emails. By contrast, I am also trying out Our Pact and every email I sent received a response in less than 12 hours, and usually within 1-2 hours.

    Ive tried three different apps that are supposed to help me control my child’s screen time. All have fallen short until unGlue. It allows my child to manage his time wisely, to learn about getting more time for chores and how to bank his minutes. Its been a challenge for him and has turned into a game to maximize his minutes. Thank you unGlue! Love it

    I downloaded the app a while ago before it had all these cool features for my family. I used it to keep myself on track. I updated it today and these features looked really awesome. I am bummed because the price is really steep for my family at this time. 😞 taking it off and disconnecting before we get charged.
