I bought this recently and I like this over qustodio. I am trying to work out how best to configure given the below requirements for my daughter -
- ability to collaborate using messaging apps (e.g. iMessage) more frequently / dynamically
- ability to cap time of other apps on the same device.
I have done this by allowing a 5 minutes internet time every hour on the profile with that device, and then as required or requested by my daughter, we ‘Extend Time’ for the duration she want to be using.
This way, I think at hourly interval during the 5 minutes schedule, the IPAD will check for new messages, if there were messages and she notices it, so she could then request time to actively chat with her friends by requesting a block of internet time through either myself or her mum.
Maybe there is a better way to do this?
While I am at this, perhaps I would also make a feature request with the above setup:
As you know adding a 5 minutes schedule per hour had been a laborious process, as I had to turn off the Home Work time so that the time picker will display. Then add the 5 minutes allocation per hour for every day of the week. It would’ve been better if there is a way to specify this? Such as using a cron expression to specify the kick in time, and another box for the duration?
