DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Dec 20, 2013) - Gizmoquip, a mobile app development company, has launched App Lock, its latest Android application now available at the Google Play Store for free. App Lock gives parents the ability to manage, control and protect apps on any Android smartphone or tablet that they are buying for their child as a present.
App Lock features several locking options that parents can choose from that will help them manage and control their child's new Android device including:
- Setting daily and/or weekly schedules for a child to use specific apps.
- Limiting amount of time apps are accessible with timer settings designed to automatically lock out ensuring a child never goes beyond the permitted time frame.
- Blocking access to Google Play to protect from accidental purchases.
- Protecting device settings to prevent any changes.
- Password-protection for any or all apps installed on the device.
- Create, select and group apps into folders such as games, social networks, etc. so restrictions only have to be entered once and can be changed at any time only with an access code.
- Create multiple profiles with different restrictions for each user making it convenient for parents who purchase a device for sharing.
"Children as young as three years old are now savvy with using mobile devices, and this holiday shopping season, many parents will be buying smartphones and tablets as presents for their kids," said Michael Kupka, CEO at Gizmoquip. "App Lock gives parents a very powerful tool that helps them place limits on which apps they can use, when they can be used and for how long."
App Lock can be downloaded for free at the Google Play Store.
