  • So far, so good

    Update: I've been unable to get into my daughter's iPad and get the apps and Safari to even show up for over 24 hours. I even deleted her profile and it's still not working. She is on vacation so this is very upsetting. There is no answer when I call. I wish I could use the upgraded feature, but installation was too hard. I spent about 8 hours on different days trying to install and never could.
  • Latest update broke it

    The latest update completely broke the app control tab. It now briefly shows the app list and then switches to the schedules, which means we can't control what apps our kids have access to any more. What's the point?! I tried submitting a support ticket, but the stupid app claimed I don't have an email address on this device which is ludicrous!
  • Stop creating more issues!! 😡

    Pre4.6 hasn’t been working. Why? How should I know, but you need better QA and developers that know what they’re doing. What issues? 1. Moving out to blocked will put status on parent device as “blocked pending” then on child device “OurPact Jr.” will advise “blocked”...but all the apps are still accessible! 2. Tapping on the ‘app rules’ tab will display the allow/disallowed apps for ~1 second then goes right back to schedule. WTH?🤔 3. Moving to blocked or granted will only stay in a pending state. Lately I haven’t been able to successfully use this app. And I would highly recommend that some of us who are premium members get some kind of compensation as we can’t even use the features we pay for. 😡
  • Update messed up the app.

    Can’t scroll through apps. Press apps and it jumps to schedule. It’s broken.
  • FaceTime and camera not separate

    App is good. Easy to lock down. Premium setup took a while but directions were very easy to follow. My only gripe which brings my 5 star to a 3 star is that camera and FaceTime are one in the same. FaceTime is what I needed to block. Now it's on a schedule and I have to constantly flip the switch to allow camera access. Please separate that in the next update.
  • don’t use this

    parents, if you are using this app you’re way to strict on your kids. give them a break. let them have their apps. no kid should have to be the only kid in their grade with this crap on their phones. just take their phone away for the love of god. worst app.
  • The Premium service is a nightmare to set up.

    Signing up for the FREE plan, and the $1.99 PLUS PLAN was pretty straight forward. In no time at all, I had my kid’s iPads and iPhones all logged in and paired to my iPhone so I could control their screen time. Wow, piece of cake I thought! So hey, why not go for the $4.99 a month PREMIUM Plan, I figured, so that I could get the extra features. But it turns out that if you upgrade to the $4.99 a month PREMIUM PLAN you have to actually download a special utility onto your MacBook or PC, and then navigate through a very cumbersome process, in which you are directed by screen prompts on your computer to go into the settings on your kid’s devices and jump through hoop after hoop, which included, turning their find my phone feature off, and even backing up the entire contents of your child’s devices onto your MacBook or PC. I got the spinning wheel of death on the first two tries, and on the third try (two hours of my day wasted) it finally made it through the backup. But then more prompts popped up, asking me to go back into my child’s iPad to turn off the encryption settings etc., etc., etc. At that point I said enough is enough, and decided that with three more devices to go, I was not going to spend the rest of my busy day navigating though this convoluted process just for a few more features that the premium service offered. So yeah, the premium subscription is probably not a good option for us folks who aren’t techies, or for that matter for us folks who don’t have a whole lot of time to spend—and I’m talking a whole lot of time.
  • Poor execution - lacks basic controls

    This is my second attempt at using this app in the week trial phase. The horrible reviews on the Jr. side are funny and clearly an indicator that the kids hate this app, so that’s a positive for me. What we have struggled with is confusing and convoluted installation instructions for the Premier version. Product support only available by email. The latest incident? After 1 day(!) our 12-year old just deleted the Jr. app from her phone despite Restrictions turned on in iOS, despite the OurPact app being blocked on her phone. It’s that simple apparently. No, this app needs a lot more UX and functionality improvements before it ever becomes a useful tool for parents.
  • App and Customer Service Fall Short

    By Suzmom
    This app has potential but fall short. I paid for the upgrade which I NEVER got! That does not include the fact I can’t access the website properly because there are errors in there system. I have tried contacting customer support and even messaged them on FaceBook, they told me that someone would be in contact with me and I never heard back.
  • Somewhat effective, but with many holes

    The first iteration (now the free tier) left the News up enabled when in blocked mode. It took my 8 year old less than a day to discover that all he needed to do was find an article with a YouTube video, watch it to the end and be free to browse the rest of YouTube, all while the browser is supposed to be turned off. I was initially hopeful about the premium subscription version as it lets you remove the News app as well. It didn’t take long for my kid to discover that he can type the YouTube url in a document in the google docs app and open said url. What this service really needs is a customizable url blocker that allows parents to control what urls are blocked, with one set that’s always on and one set that’s linked to block/grant state. We were hoping that the premium version would let us have a disabled mode that only allows homework activities, but the current implementation is inadequate for the purpose, at least for kids somewhat motivated to get past restrictions. Certainly not worth $5 per month as currently implemented.
