    The Kid’s App was designed with the idea that parents and children should agree on the right amount of screen time.    Kids love having the freedom to make choices. unGlue lets them track their own screen time, check their schedules, earn more time by doing chores, and even roll over unused minutes for another day. You set the limits on content and time. Encourage better habits by allowing your kids to save unused screen time for later — up to your maximum limit.   Get your kids active again. Motivating your kids to get moving isn’t hard when you have the right bargaining chips: screen time minutes. With Steps4Time, kids can trade daily steps for screen time. It’s an easy way for parents to get their kids up and out of the house — not just glued to their gadgets.

    The app gives children a fun little nudge to help them get into the habit of drinking water regularly throughout the day by combining it with the process of growing a plant. You can pick from a selection of virtual plants and enter basic information like your child’s weight and how much water they should be consuming. When you’ve set this up your child will be prompted to water the plant throughout the day in order to keep it alive and they’ll have to drink water at the same time.   Once the plant has fully grown it can be planted in a digital garden and you can generate new seeds to start the whole process over again.
