Child Lock Launcher

Keep­ing the kids out of your stuff. FREE | TINYURL.COM/APC445-CHILD

APC Australia - - Software -

Main­tain your pri­vacy and keep the calls of “Mum/Dad I’m bor­rreeedd! Can I watch YouTube?” to a min­i­mum with this app that lim­its the ac­cess your off­spring have to your phone. Set up a pass­code, choose the apps and games that you’re happy for your child (or even to­tal stranger) to use and play, and you’re set.

Smart op­tions also re­strict sys­tem-level func­tions, like lock­ing the cam­era key (if your phone has one), and ig­nor­ing long presses on the home but­ton to pre­vent Google searches. Wi-Fi can be tog­gled on/off, and the vol­ume lim­ited. Younger kids might also like the sim­ple paint­ing apps that are built in, though the pal­ette is re­stricted to less than a dozen colours, and there’s no way to save these cre­ations. It’s rudi­men­tary to look at, and while you can tech­ni­cally still ac­cess the home screen, Child Lock Launcher restarts five sec­onds af­ter hit­ting the home key, or if any­one tries to ac­cess any apps. For the price of pre­cisely zero dol­lars, it’s an in­cred­i­ble re­turn on in­vest­ment.
