Do you wish you could control when your children can use their mobile phones and which apps they can use at what times, even when you aren’t with them?
Well, thanks to a great app called DinnertTime Plus, you can. Simpy install the app on both your child’s phone and your own phone, then link the two phones via a text message.
Once the apps are installed and the phones are linked, you’ll be able to designate periods of time when your child’s phone will be placed into an inactive state.
Well, inactive isn’t exactly accurate. Sending and receiving text messages, playing games and running apps won’t be allowed, but by default the phone can still make and receive calls in case an emergency arises. That way your child will still have use of the phone if he/she really needs to make an emergency call.
You can change the behavior of your child’s phone remotely, in real time, and you can enable certain apps even when the rest of the apps are disabled. For example, you can allow the use of the camera app during a break or the calculator app during study time.
Dinnertime Plus is free but they also offer a premium “family pack” for a modest fee.
Bottom line: You can now control how and when your child uses his/her smartphone without having wonder about what he/she is doing with it. And yes, you deserve that peace of mind.
