DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - Gizmoquip, an Android app development company, released AppLock Cloud, the first remote Android device management app for parents now available on Google Play. AppLock Cloud is designed for parents who want the ability to remotely manage how much time their children can spend on their Android device.
Parents can place time limits and restrictions on their children's Android phone or tablet by installing AppLock Cloud on all their devices. Once AppLock Cloud is installed, parents must register for an AppLock Cloud account using a valid email address and password. Once registered, parents can now manage and control how much time their children can spend on their apps from any Android device connected to the Internet. To make it more convenient for parents, Gizmoquip designed and developed the AppLock Cloud web portal (currently in beta testing) so registered users can access all AppLock Cloud features from a secure, user-friendly, website at www.applockcloud.com.
Either from an Android device or the website, parents can set daily and weekly time limits on their children's apps. They can also create as many user profiles as they want and customize rules for each of the profiles. To keep it simple for parents, AppLock Cloud lets them clone profiles so they don't have to create and update rules repeatedly for each profile. In addition, parents can create groups and categorize apps so time limit rules for all apps in a group are the same.
Additional features include temporarily unlocking an app from the parent's Android device and viewing how much time is spent by their children on each app through the reports function on the web portal. Profile and rules updates made on the device are synced automatically with the website.
"Based on recent research, children and teens spend close to 11 hours a day on their mobile devices," said Michael Kupka, CEO of Gizmoquip. "As a parent, I know how difficult it is to place time limits on children when they're on their device. We developed AppLock Cloud to make it easy for parents to take back their children's time and lead more balanced lives."
AppLock Cloud web portal is currently in beta testing and the AppLock Cloud app is available for free on Google Play for a limited time.
