Re: [Apps] Parental control apps to limit app access with web ad

I use App Lock »play.google.com/store/apps/detai···xvY2siXQ.. (there's a free version, as well as a paid one) to keep my son out of apps that he's not supposed to be using, including the Play store, but you can also set the play store up with a PIN to buy apps, and I think includes free apps, but I don't remember for certain.

The pin in app store is only for purchases as is evidenced by my 6 yr old downloading and installing [u]every[/u] app with the word lightsaber in it.

Thanks! That actually looks like exactly what I want. Doesn't force a new app launcher on you? Will it do a whitelist mode where I can just allow the phone, messaging, and gmail apps and everything else auto-blocks even if something new is added?

I'll have to try it out next time I get access to his phone.

I swear, some people should have pace-makers installed to free up the resources. Breathing and heart beat taxes their whole system, all of their brain cells wasted on life support.-two bit brains, and the second bit is wasted on parity! ~head_spaz

It does not force a new launcher on you, but it does not have a whitelist mode. You have to tell it what to lock, and what to leave unlocked.
