What is Kidtrol?
Control other devices! Kidtrol is a parental lock app that allows parents to set schedules for when particular apps will be accessible by controlled Apple devices. Framed within a friendly, simple to use UI, finally there’s a mobile device manager that parents can actually use with ease.
How did we do it? How
did we make Kidtrol
Kidtrol approached us with an idea for a mobile device management (MDM) application to allow parents to limit the applications on their kids’ iPhones, iPods, and iPads. We worked together to develop a cute UI that minimized work for the parents, set up and maintain an MDM server and admin portal, and established in-app purchases for monetization.
After pairing their kid’s device with the Kidtrol service, parents can schedule when to block access to particular apps on their kid’s phone. For example, parents might want to block all third party apps during weekday school hours, or block the use of the camera every day but Sunday. Schedules can be temporarily overridden and applied to multiple kids and devices.
Kidtrol On Demand
In addition to the scheduling feature, parents can use the On Demand feature to block all smartphone activities for a specified length of time. And if parents don’t have a specified length of time in mind, they may use an “Until I say” option to block or unblock a device indefinitely.
