  • Not enough options, didn't turn off Minecraft

    By Shellistar2579553
    We will be canceling after this month. Minecraft did not turn off. you cannot schedule the Internet at different intervals during the day so I can't say one hour before school and two hours after school. I did like the chores piece.
  • Not a free app as advertised and slows down devices

    By looking for a timer!
    This app is advertised is free but it requires a subscription and doesn't work anyways because it uses a VPN and slows down our devices to the point where I can't use them
  • Love it!

    By Jtlondo
    l absolutely love unglue. I use it with my 11 year old, and believe it or not she likes it.
  • Very Disappointing

    By BillinSF
    This app simply does not work. I don't know why. VPN seems to be installed correctly, but no usage time registers at all. Useless. And no phone support. Just message boards. Very disappointing. I'll be cancelling and asking for a refund for my one month of payment. The comments about this app being more of a beta release seem correct. And yet they're charging full boat for the product. I may try again when they get it right.

    I've just downloaded unGlue and have gone through the set-up; it looks like a great app and will really help out with time management, but beware - this isn't a free app! You get two weeks (I think) free, and then after that it's a $10 mo/$84 year service fee to continue to use all the basic features. I'm giving it only three stars because of the misdirection and that I haven't used it yet; once we get going we'll see how well it works.
  • Don't do it

    By Gfsdfhh fedffghh wow
    Parents don't do this your children will hate you
  • Great start with my 8 year old

    By Hotspur122345
    We've had the app going for about a week on my son's iPad and Mac computer, and it is working beautifully. Clean interface, accurate tracking (so far). My son finds it very interesting to track his usage and is already using it as a tool to manage himself. "I see I have played Minecraft for 40 minutes today, so I am going to play Lego a bit more..." after a bit of anxiety at the start about being shut down too often. I hope the app's function as a catalyst to have conversations with him about managing his time spent on apps, games, continues. A few small tweaks needed to identify the name of a few games not the firms that make them on the tracking, but a quick email on this led to a conversation with within a day about how to address. I am bullish on this app. My rec to the firm, come up with a version for adults...
  • Best Tracking app I've found with super support

    By Clembury
    The app support for unglue is second to none. Email support is prompt followed by phone support as warranted. I use the puck which was fast and easy to set up. There were some recent inconsistencies with tracking which app support handled thoroughly. The support team is responsive and patient. I loved the 2 week trial period so much that we prepaid for a whole year! Update email of thanks sent to Unglue Support: Good news and a step in the right direction... I left (son) at home last night playing away on his PS4. Per the app he was already out of screen time, but I figured I was fine with letting him play since parents were having a date night. I got home and he was lamenting to me that his PlayStation turned off at some point while we were gone! Thank you! I think some of what you did on the phone yesterday with me (deleting the duplicates) helped!
  • I really hope they can get this working

    By Magnum278
    Great idea but no where near being ready for commercial production. Works decently for iOS apps. For non iOS devices (Xbox, PS4) it doesn't work at all (it will record a few entries - but the times it records are wrong by orders of magnitude). The kids can't watch Netflix when outside of home wifi as the service uses a VPN (which Netflix blocks). It took my 13 year old about half a day to figure out he could bypass the entire thing by simply turning off the VPN. I've spent a few hours this week trying to implement this in our house. The only way this will ever work is if they partner at the operating system level with Apple, Microsoft, Nintendo etc and get buy in/cooperation from Netflix and others. Until then, it's just a huge hassle that doesn't accomplish what's promised.
  • Probably should be in Beta

    By Patrick1963
    We've been running it for a couple of days. It keeps telling me that it hasn't heard from my kids' devices, but when I check them they seem to be connected. The "home" dongle works intermittently, which might be a big part of the problem. At any rate, whether its my kids' computers or iPhones, the app is tellling me they aren't using social media even though I seem them using it.
