  • Challenging to start, yet it’s the best out there right now Mar 18, 2018

    By 666Toro666
    The concepts are great, but it’s not easy getting started and implementing the app. Once implemented, the premium app is well worth it. It is very expensive, yet the addictive properties of cell phones demand accompanying education in self-control, and this app is the best out there for now. The website has videos pulling your heartstrings about your relationship with your kids. Unfortunately the website is not so friendly when it comes to finding the instructions for using the app. One needs to bumble around until one runs into them at the bottom of the home webpage, because they’re not even labeled. App support responds quickly, but they send you generic instructions about the topic you’re inquiring about. With a little persistence they may write back with an actual answer, but such effort shouldn’t be necessary for something that will cost upward of $500 to cover one child’s teen years with the premium app monthly charges. Alas, until something else comes along, this seems to be the best app for parental control, so I’m recommending it.

    so far the only issue i had was having to put my kids apps bk in the same order they was in before downloading the app, its been a true blessing to find this app and with a very cheap subscription fee for usage of all the extras i need, i love it and so far, by far the best parental app for what i need, i will definitely be keeping the app.

  • Almost Perfect! Oct 15, 2017

    By mrfilmmkr
    I went ahead and gave it 5 stars anyway. I am an iOS developer myself, and I know the incredible amount of thought and work that goes into creating something like this. I have read some of the other reviews and I have to say that most of the negative reviews are just silly. Of course you need an internet connection. How else is the device going to receive commands. Of course the installation is involved. Honestly though, the installation took me less than 5 minutes - and wasn’t difficult at all. I can understand that some people may get confused - but honestly - you must realize what the developers at Our Pact have created is no easy feat. We have tried just about every parental control app available all to our dissatisfaction. Our Pact accomplishes 95% of what we were looking for. Having said that, the reason this review is entitled “Almost Perfect” is because there is one thing this app is missing. That is the monitoring of which web sites the child goes to as well as the monitoring of text messages and whatnot. However, the reason I gave this app 5 stars is due to the fact that this app’s purpose isn’t to monitor, but rather to teach children good device habits and accountability as well as personal responsibility. Well done! Thank you for all of your effort and hard work!

    I use this app to restrict app on my children's devices Sometimes, on one child device, the schedule is disabled by the app (and all apps from the children phone is active when is necessary to be inactive).
  • Works great! Jul 30, 2018

    I absolutely love this app! I have been using it since 2016. Some apps never add new features but the developers keep coming up with more things that make my life easier and give me peace of mind. I love the new geofencing feature. My daughter tends to become a bit obsessed with her electronics and it’s helpful to eliminate the distracting apps during times that she needs to do homework or access to apps that can help her in daily activities. Maybe you can develop an adult version that I can use so I won’t get distracted by my phone too. :) I suppose I could add my own phone to the managed devices. My daughter has some complaints though. You may not be able to do anything about this. She was was wondering if you could make an exception for apps that use time for the time allowance. She loves to listen to music but it uses her allowance. She also gets very upset when she forgets to pause her time for her allowance and she runs out of time. I’m just passing these on. She has other options for music when she’s at home. The rest just involves being willing to communicate her needs and wants in an appropriate way to me to get more time. She’s still figuring this one out. Thanks for developing a great app! I look forward to seeing all of the features you will come up with in the future.

    Works well. Easy to use and blocks my kid from using her phone when I don't want her to. Only 1 stars though because i find the developers greedy in wanting $7 per MONTH to use the premium features. If developers set a fair rate of say a dollar a month or $10 per year they would get lots more upgrading to premium. As it is take up will be minimal. Stop being greedy developers. Is $1 per month from millions of people not enough?

    Started out with the free account but ran out of free uses (they limit how many times you can shut off your child’s applications). So, I upgraded to Ourpact Plus so I could manually shut off my sons account. Everything worked great until I started to notice issues. First, when you click the button to disable applications you trust that the action was completed. I would wake up the next morning and log back in just to find that it was never shut off and my son could have been up all night. Second, there were two instances when I had to reinstall the application on my sons phone (repair) because it would freeze and leave me unable to control my sons application. Finally, I lost all faith in ourpact when our son was grounded for a week (kept his phone but had no apps). Looked over his shoulder and saw him on Snapchat—how? Long story short, if you google how to get around ourpact there is a step by step guide for kids to disable certain features of ourpact (making your parents think it works but it really doesn’t). Support is via email only. They only send generic messages that are very scripted. Though scripted the response does come quickly. Ourpact will definitely work for younger kids but not older kids that know their way around devices. To be honest, all they need to do is go into settings and you can disable the entire ourpact system with one click. I think the application is great if it works but there are a ton of back doors to fix.

  • Premium permanently ruined ability to connect to iTunes on my computer Dec 26, 2018

    By BamatamRN
    I used the basic version for a short time then upgraded to premium. I STILL have not even been able to try the features to see IF they work, because the Premium version will not install on my phone nor my daughters. It requires you to download the software on your computer via iTunes. Once I did this, neither my phone or my daughters phone will connect to iTunes on my computer at all. After MANY generic email responses from OurPact (because there is no phone interaction at all- email is the only customer service choice you have), they tried to claim it was a problem on Apple’s end; this is ridiculous to even suggest, since I had just completed an update on the phones via the same iTunes an hour before the problem. The ONLY difference is this installation. So I called Apple Support and spent close to two HOURS troubleshooting with an upper level tech, who ultimately determined that OurPact had caused the issue and there was nothing they could do on their end. Even after uninstalling the software and apps completely from my computer and phones, the problem is still there. I would highly encourage you to look elsewhere. If this had worked as it was supposed to, it seems to be a great app system. But not only did it NOT work, it has caused damage to my iTunes connection that even Apple can’t fix. Download at your own risk.

  • Was pretty complex to set up - but it works beautifully Jan 5, 2018

    By MooseJaw66
    I have two kids and two iPhones to set up, and the process was a good bit more involved than I expected. For the “premium” level with all the controls (which frankly is the service level any responsible parent will want), you have to back each kid’s phone up to iTunes on your (parent) laptop, then erase and reinstall each one with a new OurPact-controlled OS. As luck would have it, both phones decided during the process that they also had to download and install a new OS update, so the process of setting up two kid phones, two parent laptops and two parent iPhones took almost 2 hours. But the step-by-step directions in the installation utility and on the website were extremely thorough and I got through it without any problems - just took a while. (I do have to wonder though about how a less tech-savvy parent might fare..?) With the installation now behind us, we really like the design and function of the app. It gives us a new level of peace of mind by allowing us to limit our kids’ screen time, and to have pinpoint control over their Instagram/Snapchat/texting/Facebook/social media/Safari use.

    I really loved this app for the possibility to set up the limits for specific apps and for creating multiple schedules. But the Screen Time Allowance is blocking all the apps that are set to only be limited in time on my device - instead they are not accessible at all when this function is on. Please fix it as this feature is really wanted! Currently I am just disabling it in the app settings and controlling the time allowance in person. Also would be nice to have a demo version of what the subscription will look like before or buying it, since your free version is totally unfunctional, hence doesn't provide any idea on the functionality and the quality.

  • One glitch keeps the rating from great Aug 14, 2017

    By Brenfitz
    So, we have had OurPact premium for several months and overall I have been very happy with it. I had no problem installing it on my son's iPhone 5s but have not yet been able to install it correctly on the other son's iPod. I haven't spent a lot of time trying so I won't count off for that. I have one major issue that has arisen that really means I will probably cancel. Gamecenter. When apple deleted the gamecenter app that means it is no longer able to be controlled by OurPact and has become restricted completely. So, my son lost all his game progress on multiple games when I blocked them. While my husband says "who cares" I feel like that's a little harsh that I don't mind in his allotted screen time if he plays them and I know I would be really aggravated if I lost things like that. I feel like this may end up being a deal-breaker because if I can't limit games there is little point in having the app. If it wasn't for this issue I would absolutely love the app because I have such great control over his phone even when he's not with me.

    WARNING! When applied to a child's device, this completely ruins and shuffles any folders and homescreen layout they may have arranged. It's quite a negative experience. Apart from that, it can be made to block apps, after a lot of effort spent configuring it.

  • Not for everyone (especially older children) May 23, 2018

    By Aliwise
    My son (freshman) is able to remove management thru his iOS device and although programmers are working on a fix to prevent such an easy removal, it is taking a long time. Unpairing has also occurred when I had the phone with no explanation or reason for it...not sure what would explain this. I’m going to try our carrier’s version and hope for the best. I might try again when my daughter gets a phone, but not sure I recommend for older kids who understand limits are important but like the ability to overide technology. Also - I paid for the plus subscription for $1.99 the last few months. A few days after this months payment, I decided to upgrade to the premium version for $6.99 hoping for better results. The upgrade was made thru the app, which said I would get a free trial period (win, win - right?!)...no, a couple of days later I was charged $6.99. So I paid for plus AND premium in a weeks time. I wouldn’t mind so much, if the pairing issues were fixed....and support response time was more reasonable (still waiting on response from the last request for help).

  • Upset May 2, 2018

    By JoshieMom
    I would like to preface this by saying I do like the block and schedule features. Initial installation was simple, and easy to do. That’s what the three stars are for. However, I am quite unhappy that there is no warning about the app scrambling unless you dig through the App Store reviews. When you see an app has a high rating you just don’t expect such a huge flaw. My son has Aspergers, and changes in stuff can really bother him. We discussed this app as a deterrent for making bad choices when it came to games after bed. We were both happy with the way this app said it worked. So flipping his phone back on and discovering his carefully organized folders were gone was terrible. Obviously I should have dug through the reviews more thoroughly before installing and when it comes down to it it’s my fault, but I am disappointed. We will decide tomorrow, after some sleep and time to think, if we will continue to use this app. Frankly the process to upgrade to premium looks intimidating, and we don’t have a pc so I guess, by now reading reviews, actually impossible for us.

  • New user need help Feb 26, 2018

    By Erinmcinnis
    I love the idea of this app and set it up and paid for premium version. It took me awhile to set it up on my first child’s phone. I’m testing a different one in each of my kids phones (this is only one connected to mine). Tonight almost all my apps disappeared. I knew from reviews, you responded saying it must be the parents getting setup as the child. I don’t even know how that’s possible. My restrictions in my settings were like I was a child with a long list of things blocked. I took other reviewers advice and deleted the app from my settings but now I’m afraid I will have to start all over and don’t want it to apply to my phone. My sons phone is one I connected to iTunes and went through entire process. It shows his iPhone 5s as the one monitored. I don’t have a 5s. I even logged on on a separate phone and tried “grant access” and took away all restrictions and still nothing changed. I can’t risk that. But this was the one I wanted to use the most. Can someone email me? I’ll change my review if I can figure this out snd give it a fair shot. Erin Mcinnis signed up on 2/24 Thank you.

  • Review from the victim Sep 27, 2018

    By ally the teenage victim
    Hello my name is ally I am 1 of two teenagers in my family and honestly this app is trash. I know some people might read this review and think “oh well 1 less thing to complain about” but in my case it’s the exact opposite. My family is a military family so obviously I move around a lot. It may see, like a common thing because there are a lot of military families in the US. Usually the orders for my family are set to two year but no longer than three. For me it feels like I’m on a time limit at every second of my life and this app only makes it worse. My family uses this app as a punishment which I don’t respect but it does allow ,y phone to turn off at night which I do respect because we all know what a teen is like without their beauty sleep. All I’m saying is that before you decide to use this app confront your child and make a plan like for example a bedtime schedule or self monitoring system and trust them for a while. If that doesn’t work then please by all means get this app but I encourage you to use the system of trust first.

  • Premium install was a nightmare May 11, 2018

    By B.Corujo
    A friend of mine suggested this app and after a quick search I found the reviews over were good so I thought I’d try it out. The free version scrambled my kids phone and caused a huge argument. The premium version said it would eliminate that and gave all the benefits I was looking for so I decided to upgrade. The price seems steep at 6.99 a month but I figured this would still be money well spent. I tried for two days to install the premium version and ran across multiple issues. I could not find basic answers in the FAQ section which is odd because so many of these reviews state having issues and questions installing the Premium version you would think there would be some “canned” troubleshooting tips. I reached out to support via email (I couldn’t find a phone number) and got a generic response saying please provide ya more information. I provided additional information of my problem but I haven’t heard back from them yet so I deleted the app. It’s unfortunate. Reading through the reviews here it looks like overwhelmingly people struggle to install the premium app but once it’s done the results seem good. For an app that I’m paying for, especially that much, the install should be easier OR support/directions or trouble shooting should be easier to access especially since the problems seem to be common and known. Too bad

  • ⚠️⚠️iOS 14⚠️⚠️ Jan 5, 2021

    By musical_flamingo
    I will say the app does it’s job to keep kids from looking at certain things or using certain apps after a certain time. Something that I don’t like is how it doesn’t really work with new features in the iOS update. I’ve seen a lot of complaints about this so I decided to check it out myself. Lots of people want to have an aesthetic look on their phone. In order to do so, they customize it with widgets and they put new icons on their apps. However, it doesn’t allow you to put on app icons. The only way you were able to have these icons on your phone with ourpact is when your phone is unblocked. Some parents put controls on that allow their kids to have more time rather than having less. But then it’s also vice versa. This app does it’s job but I personally feel like you should at least add a new update to ourpact and ourpact Junior that allows kids to do the features of iOS 14. If you think about it kids, still want their phone to feel and look normal. A good majority of them are already embarrassed to say that their mom or dad puts restrictions on their phone. If you could at least add an update that works with any new update from this point on I would be very grateful for that. If not, I really don’t think people are getting their moneys worth.

  • Disappointed Jul 19, 2020

    By RebaAM
    I had high hopes for this app but after so many issues and seeing the app fail to deliver on its most basic of premises, I have decided to cancel my premium membership and delete the app altogether. I had so many issues trying to download the premium version onto my sons iPhone, it would never let me install it on his phone. It never gave me a reason why it failed or gave me any clue as to what was the issue, it just gave me an error message and would never work, no matter what I tried. On my other sons phone, it somehow allowed him to download and create an Instagram account, although I had every block specific to Instagram in place on my controls. I should also add that my son didn’t look up how to get around ourpact controls, he didn’t really care either way about Instagram and was just fine deleting it after I found it, the phone just didn’t give him any sort of block when he went to download it. I have basically been paying for nothing - since the most basic control (bedtime limits) is the only thing that worked and I could do that on my own from our family Apple account. I would love to have everything this app promises, it would be a game changer for our family. I hope they figure out all the kinks.

  • Kids figured out how to disable and help desk is difficult. Oct 11, 2019

    By Tysa1755apple
    I have found this app to be very difficult. We’ve had it for 8 mo. and We just cancelled premium. Before going into other issues the main reason we cancelled is bc my 10 yo has figured out how to unpair her device making this app useless. She set out on a mission (unannounced to me) and pretty sure it only took her a day to successfully unpair. OurPact did send a notification so I knew immediately, but I can’t constantly re-pair devices, especially as long as that process takes. If your kid doesn’t figure out how to unpair, Other problems are... Mainly the lack of ability to speak with someone at help desk. I initially had a good bit of trouble pairing my kids devices and help desk is only though email so the canned responses took weeks to get a resolution for issues they admitted they had been having. After finally getting devices paired they somehow disconnected again after a month or so. After the devices disconnected I had basic access, but I had to go through the process to set up all over again through the same pairing issues that they admitted again were kinks on their end. All could likely be fixed with a more efficient help desk process.

  • From the POV of a teen Jan 29, 2018

    By ,P13RR3,
    Of course, the developers take time and answer every adult’s reviews (read: everyone with a “valid opinion”), and they won’t answer mine or the other teen POV review I’ve seen. Why do you block camera? Why do you block Siri? Also, I saw a review that said it was less about control and more of an agreement between the parent and the child. My parents do not operate like that. They took my phone for a month and when I got it back they had installed OurPact. They leave it blocked all day, every day (except for school, so I can use google classroom and such, but the second I get back home, blocked again). I do not understand why you have to make us pay to select certain apps to block, because I know that if my parents could, they’d let me keep camera, Siri, google classroom, WhatsApp, and apps like that all the time. But since they don’t pay for apps, I’m stuck with “all or nothing” and it’s gets very frustrating than my phone can’t function like a normal phone for 90% of a day. This app has good intentions but you have to pay for all the good features, which makes it seem like that’s how you planned it.

After MANY generic email responses from OurPact (because there is no phone interaction at all- email is the only customer service choice you have), they tried to claim it was a problem on Apple’s end; this is ridiculous to even suggest, since I had just completed an update on the phones via the same iTunes an hour before the problem. The ONLY difference is this installation. So I called Apple Support and spent close to two HOURS troubleshooting with an upper level tech, who ultimately determined that OurPact had caused the issue and there was nothing they could do on their end. Even after uninstalling the software and apps completely from my computer and phones, the problem is still there. I would highly encourage you to look elsewhere. If this had worked as it was supposed to, it seems to be a great app system. But not only did it NOT work, it has caused damage to my iTunes connection that even Apple can’t fix. Download at your own risk.
