We know it’s not always easy to remember to ask for your child’s device before bedtime (we used to forget too). This is why we created bedtime schedules so apps simply disappear or get blocked at night!
Android devices, allow good apps to always work, block individual apps such as dangerous apps like Kik, After School, or even vault apps.
Apple iOS devices, set age ratings for apps and iTunes content. For example, YouTube is rated 17+ for inappropriate content, select 12+ as the app age rating to hide it.
Control either your child’s iPhone/iPad or Android device from your device. Check up on your child’s current location, time-out their device or grant more time plus communicate with our Family Messenger.

Children will learn to manage their screen time as the time goes down when playing games but stays put when spending time learning with education apps. They can still request more time and if earned, parents can easily extend their children’s screen time with our remote control app!
Safer than Safari or Chrome – SPIN Safe Browser blocks pornography, inappropriate content and achieves a safe internet surfing experience for children. SPIN also enforces safe searches and image results via Bing, Google and Yahoo.
SPIN is available for Android and Apple iOS devices.
Boomerang’s built-in family messenger* provides a safe way to communicate with your family. You can chat in a family group or keep the conversation personal with a one on one chat. All communications are limited to your Boomerang group – no outsiders can be added or invited.

Taken from our app reviews.
This app is a really good answer to the demand for parental controls on the mobile side of things. Parents, this app is the best I've seen so far for this purpose. It's well worth the small yearly fee. The developers are constantly working to improve it, and they value your feedback and suggestions.
Every parent should have this app. It has provided additional piece of mind for us as busy parents and a new way to connect with my boys that has been very positive. It's easy to use and the support provided is second to none. Absolutely love it.
Amazingly AWESOME Best monitoring & controls in the market & for great price! Love it!
...If you're a kid, you'll hate this app. If you're a parent, you'll love it. It gives you all the control you need for your pre-teen / teen and the ability to customize that control...I'm the father of an 8 and a 10 year old who have had tablets or computers since before they could walk. I'm a technophile and an educator and this app just works.
We've enjoyed our trial and are about to purchase. So far so good. Our son was annoyed because he couldn't get to certain things, which was the point. Also, he's a 16 year old homeschooler, so I love that I can program this to where he can't use his phone until a certain time of day (when he should be finished with school.)
I use this in combination with Android restricted use and this is the only thing I've found so far that my 11 year old can't crack and even if he does get out I'll get a notification so that I can address it immediately. The family messaging is terrific as well since we don't want the risk that comes with texting in general. I appreciate that I don't feel like I have to check apps, etc. constantly. Thank you!
Pricing is per device, per year and can be renewed annually. You can purchase via our in-app purchase.
