SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- unGlue (http://www.unGlue.com), a new digital time-management and empowerment platform for parents, kids, and adults, announced today the launch of its Android support and new premium services, adding to its iOS offering launched four months ago. With this release, unGlue puts effective screen time management technology, guidance and resources in the hands of all parents, while empowering their kids to learn digital time management, and to develop better screen time habits.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) revised its core guidelines to focus less on screen time limits, and more on building healthy habits. However, until now there was no easy way to implement this recommendation at home, and across all our devices. Existing parental control applications rely on a simple (and failed) "magic bullet" approach with a rudimentary ON/OFF switch for the Internet. unGlue understands, in both technology and life, there is no quick fix to parenting. unGlue provides a solution to the true problem kids and adults are having - dealing with our digital distractions and screen "addiction."
"We know that good parenting is about empowering our kids, guiding them to think and act on their own, and teaching them good habits," says Alon Shwartz, unGlue's co-founder and CEO. "We built unGlue to equip parents with digital tools that enable them to teach, monitor, and communicate with their children about screen time, while empowering kids to learn how to manage their own screen time, and not the other way around. unGlue is one-on-one parenting - modernized."
"unGlue was exactly what we've been searching for as everything else we had tried just seemed to fall short; too rigid and only ended in frustration for everyone," said unGlue user and mother of two teenagers, Shanda Louis. "The thing we love best is that it gives my kids a voice in how to use their time thus reinforcing those good self-management habits and communication. Given a voice, my teenagers immediately 'bought in' and quickly learned about the impact and consequence of screen time with built-in features like the time-bank, scheduler and others."
unGlue is free for a 14 day trial with premium subscription services costing $6.99 per month. Premium services include valuable in-app resources for parents and kids with features like Entertainment Time limits, Time-Bank, Chores-for-Time, Internet Wake-Up, Bed-Times, Advanced Monitoring, Alerts as well as in-product parenting guides, tips, and videos.
unGlue is free time management tool and resource empowering people to manage their digital distraction and screen "addiction." unGlue was co-founded by two fathers, Alon Shwartz and Alex Zherdev with a mission to transform how adults, kids and society balances, and manages their digital lives. unGlue (http://www.unGlue.com) is headquartered in Santa Monica, California.
