These days almost every parent is opting for parental control apps, it’s the new big thing! The reason is the easy connectivity and smart parental control these apps offer. As all parents want great things at affordable prices, so money factor is always there in the selection of a suitable parental monitoring app. I have been reading many reviews on different apps and all of them are lacking in one way or the other. Some offer less features, some are over-priced, some offer great features but are way too costly.
On the other hand, what I found reading the reviews on FamilyTime was that the user responses were great! A lot of people are using this app as it offers so many features at an affordable price. So I personally downloaded it and here’s my review on FamilyTime:
FamilyTime from a bird eye view
FamilyTime is a parental control app with a lot of diversity. It offers many features like; location tracking, Geo-fencing, web-history, call-history, contacts etc. It is a very well-balanced app with great features and affordable price. And more importantly, your teen is fully aware of the access this app gives you and the data it logs from the child device. So in order for this app to work effectively, child consent is very important.
This app is great for working parents who need to supervise their children, but cannot always be there in person. This app allows you to monitor all your child’s activities from single dashboard! Also, this app has separate dashboards for parents and children.
