  • Not what I thought it would be

    By Newbie 24
    First of all, setup is a pain. It took several attempts. Now that I’ve been using it for a while, I realize that almost everything this app does can be done in iPhone’s screen time restrictions settings. It can’t track calls, or show me any app activity, it can only show me SOME texts. For some reason only about half of the conversations load, and they’re not being deleted from his phone, they just don’t show up in the app. Worth $135? Not at all.
  • Great idea that doesn’t work

    By ALS143
    I was super excited to use this app to monitor my preteen and her usage. It says it does all sorts of things like send you alerts and monitor websites. Allows you to monitor text messages and allow only kid friendly apps. Actually it only costs a lot of money and doesnt do any of those things. The set up took well over 24 hours with many “there is a problem with set ups” I am not a inept person. I can download and implement apps. Fix the problems, charge way less the $140 a year and you may have more customers! Again....great idea that just doesn’t work.
  • 24 hours ?

  • Does not work as described

    By Joy262
    I just started using this app for my sons phone and after an extensive setup I thought it was ready for use. Turns out, every time I want to see the texts or contact list, I have to do the install all over again. And on the app description it says you will also be able to see phone call history but after everything is setup; it says that feature is not available for iPhone and iPads. This is not acceptable. This is a bait and switch and I’m seriously considering deleting this app for this reason. I’m paying for a service, and I am not getting what I’m paying for.
  • Inaccurate description in App Store

    By NolaM3
    There are two inaccurate misleading facts in the App Store description. 1. We specifically chose this app because the App Store description says it works on IOS 9 or later and we have an older phone that will only upgrade to IOS 10.3.3. After contacting tech support when having trouble installing we learned you must have IOS 12 or later. 2. We tried for a week going back and forth with tech support about why our subscription wasn’t working even after we had been charged $14.99 only to find out they no longer support month to month pricing. However, through the App Store it let me purchase it for a month.. just wouldn’t work. Only positive is tech support would get back to us, not that they were helpful just affirming that the problem was with the app.
  • Didn’t work

    By BurtonRides
    Spent a couple of weeks messing around with it to get it setup, but without much luck. Contacted app developer, on their side it showed that everything was setup and working, but the app didn’t do anything on my end except tell me when a new app was installed on kid’s phone. I should have cancelled prior to end of trial subscription, was a waste of time and money on my part, was not able to get a refund.
  • Stupid

    By kelviana
    No this app is retarded it’s just parents looking at all of your stuff with no privacy .. really stupid
  • Great app, but needs a few add ons.

    By jjilp
    I love the app and it’s very user friendly. I wish I could see pictures he takes. Other than that I love the app so far.
  • Don’t buy it.

    By ................????????
    Paid over $100 for the year subscription. It’s a joke. It doesn’t “live” monitor. You can only get updates every 60 minutes. If you’re buying this app, obviously your kid is up to something & you want to find out what. Well this app will only let you see what texts are on the phone when it offloads the updates every 60 minutes. So if they text and then delete it, you don’t see it. It doesn’t show deleted texts. It has to be on the phone when it sends out the updated info. Also it doesn’t monitor calls or FaceTime on iPhones. Also you can’t block websites.
  • Will not refresh

    By Mama Glp
    Takes a hour, then a day, then might not refresh ever again. Not worth a penny.
