  • Upgrade Fixes NOTHING!

    We had the problem of this app scrambling my daughter's apps on her iPhone. I sprung for the upgrade to premium and spent ALL evening installing and uninstalling and talking to ourpact support. It did not work at all! The first time I blocked and unblocked her phone - totally scrambled! The upgrade would not install the "App Organizer" that they say is needed to prevent this from happening even though I went through the whole process 2x! In addition, we figured out that this app does not allow acces to "settings" on an android phone. My son has an android phone and often turns off wifi to save battery life (so the phone doesn't search constantly) but now he couldn't access settings AT ALL. If you turn off the settings block, the app does not work on the android phone! THis is total crap. What a waste. Luckily I was still within the free trial period.

    I like the concept but it won't work. Very frustrating to pay and then have it not work. Now my child's device is all messed up after following their instructions. This review is for the "premium" ap. Don't bother.
  • Turning off wifi disables the functionality

    I'm in the same boat as some of the other reviewers. My kids quickly figured out that if they disable the internet connection after being granted access or when their schedule permits, they can keep playing indefinitely until and internet connection is re-established. This defeats the entire purpose of the app for me. This is with the premium membership. You would think that since there is an app on the child's device it could just get the schedule when it's connected to the internet and then enforce that schedule regardless of future connectivity. Unfortunately this is not the case and was confirmed by support. Now I need to cancel my subscription since basically all value has been lost. Such a shame since the features are quite good.
  • Very poor support!

    The free version of this App loaded ok. Unfortunately, I upgrade and found the Premium version to be a disaster. You have to connect your phone to a computer and jump through numerous menus in iTunes. If you have problems there is no phone support and the email support is little or no help!
  • Ok but

    Messes up folders on devices and only premium plan will fix? Not worth it
  • Very useful app but subscription based

    I tried this app years ago and it was okay. Now it's much better and has more functionality. With that being said I shouldn't complain for having privileges as a "loyal customer" (for having downloaded it when it was new) and being able to do basic things for free but like most apps these days, now there is a premium subscription option to do something important like being able to pick which apps are locked. Right now it's set where all apps are removed except for things like calling, clock, settings, and stuff like that, yet it removes FaceTime. I would like FaceTime to stay because it's easier to communicate in my opinion yet I don't have that option unless I regrant access for everything. I get so frustrated with subscription apps, it's too expensive long term.
  • One glitch keeps the rating from great

    So, we have had OurPact premium for several months and overall I have been very happy with it. I had no problem installing it on my son's iPhone 5s but have not yet been able to install it correctly on the other son's iPod. I haven't spent a lot of time trying so I won't count off for that. I have one major issue that has arisen that really means I will probably cancel. Gamecenter. When apple deleted the gamecenter app that means it is no longer able to be controlled by OurPact and has become restricted completely. So, my son lost all his game progress on multiple games when I blocked them. While my husband says "who cares" I feel like that's a little harsh that I don't mind in his allotted screen time if he plays them and I know I would be really aggravated if I lost things like that. I feel like this may end up being a deal-breaker because if I can't limit games there is little point in having the app. If it wasn't for this issue I would absolutely love the app because I have such great control over his phone even when he's not with me.

    By Best keyboard app ever!
    I gave the app 3 stars because yes, it does work, however, it doesn't really help get kids off their phones. No, they can't use them anymore, but it just frustrates them and they just get annoyed with you. It can drive your kid farther away from you, so instead why don't you do something interesting enough that they want to join in and get off their phone, which is a good habit to help them learn self control, and allow the both of you to actually BOND, not just hang out because there is nothing else to do..
  • Illegal to charge fee to un-scramble apps

    8/12/17 update: App organization is part of IOS feature. OurPact has a software bug that scrambles app all over the places. The fix - pay $5 a month. That sounds terribly wrong. They can't just break things that's already working and charge people to fix it. This is just illegal. ________________ Original review: Over all it gets the work done - set a schedule and all non Apple app will be temporary hidden during this period of time. I hope in the future release it will allow us to customize what can stay and what can be hidden. Also maybe find a way to hide iMessage during schedule time will be big PLUS.
