    Useful for Restriction to Certain Apps

    This app appears to be effective in restricting Nook use to particular apps (as stated in overview). Please note, however, that this also prevents the child from accessing the library or any other part of the Nook. This app will be most helpful if it ever allows the user to add books to the "Kids' Place" as well. At this point, the app will be most useful to parents of preschoolers who are not yet reading books.

    Love it!

    We got the nook for our kids, but quickly realized we may have jumped the gun on maturity. Our oldest is 5 an he just wants to play with everything and has some how managed to delete a few apps. With this app he can't!!!!! I am so excited they can play without me worrying about what he may delete! And only have access to what I want them too!

    5 stars if...

    My review would be 5 stars if, as stated in other reviews, there was a way to add books. I often allow my older children to play on my device and would love to be able to use this app at all times with them. I want to foster their love of reading but don't want them to access my books...this app would be perfect if that feature was added.

    I work nights and this app has been wonderful when I need just 3

    I work nights and this app has been wonderful when I need just 30 more minutes of sleep. Super easy to activate, even in my half-awake state. Then I hand it off to my little darling with no worries.

    Books!!!

    I have to echo the compliants about not being able to access books. Using eBooks is why we book the nook, but we do need some control of the content for the children to use it. We were hoping this app was the answer.

    Almost!

    Love It!

    My three year old LOVES to play with my Nook and she is all the time deleting things. I love this app because not only can she not delete anything, I know she will only be playing games that I want her too!

    Works Great!

    This is easy to use. I love the timer. No more fighting that so and so got more time than me. I can block the apps i dont want them to use. And they cant get out and order things. If your kids are using your nook this is the app to have!

    Works most of the time

    My 4 year old was able to get around it and access other apps. I don't know how he did it though. I am still using the app until I find a better one. For most part, it is effective.

    What!

    This did not prevent my children 2 and 3 from buying apps. Unfortunately I can not get my money back what a ripoff. Even though this was free I paid about 8 dollars because of this app. Even turning off the WiFi did not help cause when pressing the button the Wifi screen popped up and all my 3 year old had to do was turn it on.

    I love that my son cant get on the internet or onto my apps or books. I would really like to see this allow us to put books on it as well not just apps.

    A great tool to protect the young ones.

    My kids are 8 and 10, but often fall into the temptation of getting online and cruising on YouTube while playing on my Nook. This app keeps them from getting to anything on my Nook that I don't want them to mess with. It installed itself and was very easy to set up. However, why can I not add their books to the available list? Only apps. And it would be nice if the background for the kids' menu was customizable to make it more kid attractive.
