New tool to limit game time on iPhone
Game Time Limit apps for Parents iPhone/iPod/Android App
Several apps exit to help limit game time play using block ups which appear when the designated time has been exceeded. The efficacy of these apps is unknown, but may prove a useful distraction for users spending too much time online.
Android users may find the Game Time Manager app useful. Xvision created an app titled, "Game Time Limit for Parents." This app uses SmartBlock technology which prevents a child from using the device once the timer runs out. Game Time Limit enables a parent to set a timer that limits the amount of game playing (or screen) time the child gets. When the timer ends, an alarm appears on the screen, stopping your child from playing anymore. The only way to stop the alarm is for him to handover the iDevice to you. Otherwise, the alarm keeps appearing. Game Time Limit works with all games and applications to help control iDevice usage.
Pricing and Availability: Game Time Limit for Parents is available in the App Store and iTunes.
