Download This: DinnerTime Plus gives you parental control for your kids’ devices


Have you ever sat around the dinner table as a family, but no one was talking or paying any attention to what they were eating because they simply wouldn’t put down their phone? DinnerTime Plus is here to help, giving parents an easy way to manage when their kids can use their devices. With the application installed on a parent and child device, the parent device can set up specific schedules for study and sleep times which lock out the child device. The application even allows the parent device to select which apps can or cannot be used. This feature is very convenient if your kid has been banned from surfing the web or watching YouTube videos.

If it’s time for a family meal, simply tap the Dinner Time button on the parent device and the child devices will be shown the Dinner Time notification, which will lock the device down for an hour. The parent device can also pause the child device, rendering it unusable for 24 hours or until the unpause button it hit again on the parent device.


DinnerTIme Plus will also track how long each app is used on a child device. If the basic DinnerTIme Plus features are not enough, you can pay $3.99 to get access to advanced usage reporting, the ability to set up additional schedules or add up to 5 child devices to a single account.

There’s no guarantee that your kids will actually engage in a meaningful conversation with you around the dinner table, but your odds are better with DInnerTime Plus installed on their devices.
