    Is this a beta version? This app apparently hadn't been tested. It simply doesn't work. Verizon needs to fix it before charging for this service.

    I have never wrote a review before, but I had to seek out to write this one. This app is the most deplorable thing I have ever tried to use. One star is more than it deserves. How can you sell your customers this garbage?
  • Something that should be built in

    I am just amazed that the features included in this app should be built in to the services that it features. I added the family base features so that I could control the spam phone calls I received on the Verizon home phone connect on my account. I've reached the limit to the numbers that can be blocked. And I still get numerous spam calls to the phone without any way to control how they can be blocked. I do not need any other features of the family base, other than blocking calls during the day when I am away.

    Don't waste your $4.99 a month. Get a free app that actually works instead. Verizon...you're pathetic. All that money they screw us out of and they hire morons to make apps.
  • No app should be this %$&! difficult to use!

    First of all, the interface is horrible. It looks and works something like out of an iPhone from many years past. The user menus don't make any sense what so ever and none of the virtual buttons to do anything are where they logically should be. Also, having to login every single time to make any changes to anything gets to be very burdensome. If this is going to be a requirement there should be support for 1Password or some other password app or Touch ID, especially in the day and age that we are living the where passwords need to be complicated and more secure. It is very sad that Verizon is supposed to be a technological leader in the mobile space and yet see fit to put out an app as horrible as this, especially for a paid add on service. But then again, their website is just as bad so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Very frustrating, poorly designed app. For an extra monthly charge would expect reasonably intuitive menus, not this convoluted mess.
  • Horrendous app, probably the worst one on my iPhone

    To say that this app is very "user unfriend" would be the understatement of the year. Navigating around in an attempt to try and change the data limits on my kids phones proved to be so frustrating that I gave up. The app logs you out REPEATEDLY while trying to activate/change features. Some screens won't even let you scroll all the way down, thus preventing you from even making any changes. I finally gave up, logged in through the computer and made the change. Why are we charged for this feature anyway??? If I could give this app less than one star, I would.
  • App is worthless

    Family base works only if you want to use the full website to set limits/restrictions. This app does not work. It is not intuitive at all, and most of the time the options I need are either not there or don't work and I have to use a computer to do what I need - making this app pointless. Most recently on the limits page, it will not allow me to scroll down to the "save" button. I can make the changes, BUT I CANT SAVE THEM. When I try to scroll, it just bounces back up to the top. For $5 a month for this service you would think Verizon could release an app that works. Beyond frustrating.

    The application does not accurately reflect the activity on my child's phone. It does not show location at all. Also for notification I should choose whether I want email or text notifications. I would rate this application negative stars if the review allowed me the ability to do so. This is very disappointing considering Verizon charges extra money for Family Base.
  • I'd give it less than one if I could

    Terrible app. No useful functionality. There is also no free trial. You are billed immediately regardless of being promised a 30 day trial.
