Teacher Review

Setting up the application is a relatively straightforward procedure for one that is quite complex. The app asks the user to pair a device, this is achieved by logging onto the OurPact web site from the device used by the child. Once the user has entered the name of the child a simple and intuitive set of instructions sets up the device through the settings menu installing the configuration settings, installing the profile, asking for permission for remote access and location access. This completed and the device is now at the mercy of the parent device, be it a tablet or desktop computer through a web based dashboard.
 
Once downloaded the application displays a clutter free dashboard. Along the left edge are the icons representing the children you are managing and an icon to add a device/child.
 
With a configured child chosen the main dashboard presents a screen with an enlarged picture of the child with three options: ‘Schedule’, ‘Grant’ and ‘Block’. Discretely positioned beside the picture of the child are two further icons one leading to a settings menu where the adult can upload a picture of the child to the icon, enter their age, gender, location and time zone. The second icon leads the parent to a web filter that can block adult content on the web.
 
The ‘Schedule’ option provides the parent with the opportunity to set a bedtime routine across a week. The user also has the opportunity to set further schedules and name them, for example home work. The ‘Grant’ and ‘Block’ options are fairly self explanatory and offer the parent opportunities to grant or block access to the device either forever, ‘Until I say so’ and gradations upwards in time up to eight hours and finally until midnight.
 
When the child logs onto their device and opens up the ‘OurPact.jnr’ app they are presented with a menu that will list their schedule for the day and tell them when the device will not be fully functioning i.e. bedtime.
 
Some of the main features of the app include the following:
  • App Blocker - Block internet and block apps at-a-touch
  • Geofencing with Places - parents can create GPS geofences around specific locations and receive real-time alerts when their children leave and arrive at home, school or any set zone
  • Schedules - Schedule screen time throughout the day or week
  • App Rules - Block specific apps
  • Kid Tracker - Track your child’s location using Family Locator and Places
  • Screen Time Allowance - Set daily screen time limits for your children
  • App List - Discover what apps are on your child's device
  • Block Texting - Use OurPact parental control to block access to texting apps
  • Find My Family - OurPact's Family Locator allows parents to locate any family member using geolocation
  • Find My iPhone & iPad - OurPact's Family Locator also lets parents locate all of their individual devices paired to their parent account in case of lost or stolen items.
  • Porn Blocker - Block all adult content on your child's iOS device
In summary, once the child’s device is in the clutches of OurPact, the parent is most definitely in control! Some parents may find this slightly ‘Big Brotherish’ and would wish to negotiate with their children to use the device sensibly without the need for these constraints. However, with the onset of device addiction this application will most certainly have its place in the busy parent toolkit.
