Help Your Kids Stay Focused

Limitly is a flexible screen time parental control app. It prevents kids from wasting time on smartphones and tablets. With the help of Limitly, careful parents can specify the time, when their children are allowed to use mobile devices and applications on them.

Why Using Limitly? 

Kids spend more and more time on their smartphones and tablets. Statistically, as much as 9 hours a day on average. It results in bad homework performance, troubles at school, and lack of sleep leading to health issues. 

That’s why limiting screen time is what careful parents need to secure children’s health and happiness. Limitly parental control app restricts time spent on mobile gadgets and applications. Limit the following device use: 

• during classes at school
• when doing homework 
• at bedtime or rest hours
• when family rules don’t allow it

Limitly Screen Time Control Features 

• Set a flexible schedule for use of apps via Manage Limits option
• Control the use of the target device via Device Schedule option
• Manage limits for certain categories of apps via Categorize Apps option
• Use Customize Messages option to enter a text your kid will see before a limit takes action
• Review how often your kid uses each app in Reports section
• Apply Quarantine Mode to block recently installed apps until you review them
• Apply limits to apps in bulk using Categories
• Automatically apply limits to newly added to Categories apps

How Much Does it Cost? 

Limitly app is FREE. 


Limitly app is optimized for Android smartphones. It is compatible with most of Android tablets as well. However, optimization for full functionality on tablets is still in process; thus, certain performance issues may occur. 

Please, note this app may request the Device Administrator permission.

Limitly can be uninstalled by the kid. You can activate protection by agreeing to give the Device Administrator permission. As a result the child won’t be able to remove the app. 

Please share your feedback with us to make Limitly even more helpful for you and your children at

    App blocks childs phone daily till I enter the passcode. The idea behind the app is great and probably the majority of the bad reviews are from kids, but I dont want to have to enter the passcode every day to unblock my child's phone.

    Crashes easily by tapping the app icon multiple times. Daily limits do not reset and the app still blocks the phone usage on the next day, unless the app gets closed/re-opened.

    It's very difficult to find an app that's really unbreakable for a kid. This one is easy to bypass: Even if you set the admin permissions for the limitly app and also block the Settings app to avoid the kid to unassign the admin permissions for the limitly app, the block screen appears a few later than the screen to unassign the admin permissions itself (1/2 second), so the kid would be able to unassign the admin permissions by fast click the option to unassign admin permissions, and then uninstall the app, as it'd not be protected. The same or similar things happened with qustodio app, with lots of youtube videos showing how to bypass the protection. It's sad that such a vital issue is so hard to implement and find. We are having real problems to control our daughter's time with her phone.

    My 8 year old managed to uninstall it by going to Settings when the tablet was unblocked. Then force stop on Limitly then uninstalled it. I woke up to it being nowhere on the tablet. Worked well up til that point. A countdown would be useful for block by time usage. It also seems to calculate wrong as the tablet can have things running in background and suddenlynthe time is up or it is already blocked when my kids get up.

  19. A Google user-avatar

    Like everyone else it seems, this app has GREAT potential!! BUT!! I have set limits, specific times, etc. but it could not tell the difference between normal time & military time on my kids phone. Then, like so many others, it will still lock you out of apps after the set time. It has already blocked me 3 TIMES just while I have been writing this review!! I will be uninstalling ASAP! Maybe I will try it another time if they fix (uugghh!! 4 times!!) these MAJOR bugs.

  20. A Google user-avatar

    Good idea love how you can set time limits. However so many bugs and apps are blocked in the morning or they're not blocked at all

  21. SY Wong-avatar

    Good app but clean master or other ram cleaner may clean it and not actually blocking the blocked apps. 5 star if it can run persistently without being cleaned by other app

  22. Agala Endeley-avatar

    Im a 8 year old kid so i hate the limit

  23. Timur Levent-avatar

    Great idea, poor execution

  24. A Google user-avatar

    It stinks

  25. andimthedad-avatar

    [updated] The best part of this app is time limits for a group of apps. I've been waiting for this feature from any app vendor and here it is, finally. All "Games" can be limited while leaving other apps (say, Camera or a music player) unrestricted. However, the actual blocking is VERY buggy. One app group has an hour allocated every day, but all its apps are already blocked first thing in the morning. It counts the time that an app is in the background. It often puts up a screen that says Facebook is being blocked, even though Facebook isn't running (even in the background) -- and it claims that I've opened Facebook 70+ times even though I haven't opened it once. And once you've put an app in a group, it no longer reports time spent in the app. It just says how many times you've opened it. So: promising start, but still rough and buggy.

  26. Mike Brown-avatar

    A very good idea, but too unreliable, blocks apps when it shouldn't and doesn't limit them when it should. If an update could fix those problems I might continue using it.

  27. Alan V-avatar

    App does not count active minutes (all permissions granted) and therefore does not block app when time limit reached.

  35. Simon Dunne-avatar

    This is a great idea, not just for children but also for adults who want to limit their own smartphone usage. Unfortunately, I'm experiencing a major problem that limits its usefulness. I have created a group of apps, which I would like to limit by time usage (30mins per day). However, when I wake up in the morning, the apps in the group are already blocked, even though I haven't used the phone yet that day. This might be a problem with the time the usage count resets each day. A couple of smaller issues. Firstly, if you use the PIN to unblock an app, the app is blocked again after 10-15 seconds, which is annoying. Also it would be nice to have a countdown timer showing you how much longer you have before the apps will be blocked. Last thing, the screen that appears when an app is blocked shows two messages with slightly different wording telling you that the app has been blocked. Only one message is necessary. If these problems were resolved, this is an app I would be willing to pay for.

    How to setup limit less than 1 hour? for example 30 minutes Selector does not allow select 0 hours

    Loses one star because there is no option to copy your settings from day to day. You have to individually set each app or app group for each day of the week. There is no "copy" option. Edit-removed another star because when you try to limit by period, and you add another period, it changes the end time on previous period. *edit- removed remaining stars and would give 0 if I could. Locks up phone. Drains battery. Will not uninstall. Reporting to Google play.

  39. Kaity-avatar

    Well it's a cool idea for an app but sadly it didn't work for me. All the apps I scheduled to be blocked can still be open....soooo yeah.

  40. Tommy Pickles-avatar

    Amazing App. This is exactly what I've been looking for. You can block apps by total time usage, for example 10 mins on Monday, 30 mins on Tuesday etc. You can also allow usage by time windows ex. 3pm-5pm on Mondays etc. I absolutely love the feature that you can turn on to block newly downloaded apps until you unblock them. This is a very important feature that I haven't been able to find on any other app. For me, this app is almost perfect but I do have one suggestion. It would be nice to be able to combine time usage and time window filtering. For example, I want to allow 30 minutes usage for an app on Monday, but I also want it to be available to use only at a certain time of the day. So it would be cool to give a time window like 12pm to 4pm for example, and in that 4 hour time window, the app can only be used for 30 minutes and is blocked at any time out of the time window even if 30 minutes wasn't used in that 12pm to 4pm window.

  41. Dipesh Walte-avatar

    Provides u with all advance options which give u a lot of control over which app to block when or after how much time... I am recommending this app to everyone in my circle since it is very useful and free! Thank you limitly...

  42. Jovan Andreas-avatar


  43. willie mask-avatar

    Love that it allows grouping by category. Works OK but quarantine mode for new apps doesn't seem to work which makes it kind of useless unless you disable play store. What would make this app perfect would be if they just got rid of quarantine mode and instead allowed you to choose a default category for all new apps to automatically be assigned to. Also wish I could set weekly instead of daily limits.

  44. Paige Ruppe-avatar

    It has a mind of its own and now i cant even set up limits it asks if i want to monotor even more and wont clear off. (Mom)

    This worked well for about 2 days then stopped working altogether, doesn't block apps anymore. Now I can't uninstall. Tried deactivating through playstore. But won't work.

  46. alvin lim-avatar

    At first, the interface may be a bit confusing, but 15 minutes later you’re a pro. Most of all I like to customize time limit or block messages – already changed them 4 times in 3 weeks, from funny to serious and back. Remarkably, kids like those messages too.

  47. Md Risvi Kizer-avatar

    Probably, anyway to limit smartphone or tablet usage by kids you might think about can be executed by combining Limitly's wide range of features. At the same time, it is really simple to set up. Quarantine mode that blocks all new apps automatically is an absolute must use. It's a pity that the app doesn't support iOS :(. Overall these drawbacks can't beat all positive features that this free app has.

  48. Sunny Singh-avatar

    I installed it to concentrate better, but now it was just annoying and I tried to uninstall it, and it isn't working at ALL

    This is great for setting schedules for when children are allowed to use their devices. It also has app locks. I love the multiple schedules. I set a before school time and after school time. Different times for weekends.

  50. Kelvin Ang-avatar

    After instal and setting up the limits on mi4, it doesnt work even after I reboot the phone. Pls advise

  51. Aykut Teker-avatar

    Please add an option to select the week as a whole, adjusting the amount of time for seven times is kinda hell.

  52. Anna Burnham-avatar

    My daughter used to spend hours playing on her new Samsung instead of studying, so I started to look for a solution to regulate her time. Limitly has a clean interface and neat useful features (limiting apps and categorizing them for bulk daily schedule was most helpful for me). It took about 20 min to set the app on daughter’s phone. She wasn’t happy (to put it mildly) but I believe that’s what she needs now to stay focused on her exams. Will definitely recommend Limitly to my older son for his preschooler

  53. Armenda Becker-avatar

    I've tried to uninstall because I no longer need & it won't let me delete it from my phone.

  54. Jesse Birss-avatar

    app keeps crashing, had such hopes, didn't ask for all access like many other apps, it renders itself an administrator but then would not deactivate to uninstall. Had to put the app on to uninstall through the settings in the app, can't uninstall from play or app manager

  55. Kostas Kouimtzis-avatar

    Kostas Kouimtzis


    Thays a great app, but its missing bulk time limits. For example I want 5 apps to have a limit of 15 minutes a day every single day. Will you have this feature soon?

  56. Master's Degree-avatar

    Master's Degree


    Where's the instructions? Is 9am to 3pm the time the device is available or blocked? I tried to set a time limit of 120 minutes, but no sooner than the display times out he's running to me to unblock it.

  57. Joanna Winn-avatar

    I only wish my daughter could use for example tablet for 2hrs a day and she could choose the apps she wants to use . After 2 hrs of using it the tablet is blocking itself and that's it. That would be great. Is it possible???

  58. Jason Nicol-avatar

    Made password for limiter and forgot password

  59. Amina Imran-avatar

    Great app only one major bug by default on the Huawei p8lite it clears the app in memory so even if the time limit is up after a while the app gets cleared from memory and the app gets bypassed

  60. Art Stu-avatar

    Not set it up yet as it needs to wipe data from phone, not sure why it would need to do this. Change this please devs

  61. Ying Jiun Low-avatar

    Although it's possible to protect from removal, but the Device Administration is easily disabled, and removing the app is very easy. The ideas to use Limitly. 1.Parental control to control the time children play games. 2.Examination is around the corner and you can't put down your phone, ask your friend to assign a pin and voila PRODUCTIVITY BOOST!! Love the app, will recommended to friends! Good luck, and hope that you develope an ios version too! Support!

  62. Derek Berger-avatar

    Really like this app so far. Easy to install, easy to use. My son hates it. One feature I would love to see would be limiting time access by group. For example, I want to limit my kid to 30 minutes of games per day, but I don't really care which games he plays. I can limit three individual games to 30 minutes, but then he can play for 90 minutes total. Or I can limit each game to 10 minutes for a total of 30, but that limits his flexibility if he only wants to play one game. So putting them in one group and limiting total time of the group to 30 minutes is the kind of flexibility I'm looking for.

  63. Andy yellow-avatar

    Even though I set daily limit for 2 hrs my daughter keeps coming to me because tablet is blocked after 1min of use. So I need to unblock it couple times before it work right way. Also next day you need to unblock it again even there are no limits. ONLY TIME BY LIMITS is used.

  64. Kenzie Davis-avatar

    I put it on but when I tried to use it in the morning, it would make me do the password like every 5 minutes. Do not get! The reminders get annoying too

  65. Donald Capwell-avatar

    It works, but I have to reset it every day. It seems when a limit is reached for a particular day, it stays locked "forever," until I go in and remove that limit then reset it. The app doesn't seem to know when one day ends and another day starts. A bit frustrating, but it does work for the day... And yes, I've checked all of my settings to make sure nothing contradicts...

  66. A Google user-avatar

    I like the idea but maybe I'm missing something: when an app is limited, it continues to function... I was trying to use this app to stop my son listening to music all night but if Spotify is playing something, it continues to play even though it's limited! I was really hoping that Spotify would stop when the Limitly schedule kicks in...

  67. Linzey Lucas-avatar

    This would be a great app if it worked. It was exactly what I was looking for but after it repeatedly blocked apps before the time limit was reached and never generated usage reports accurately I have finally uninstalled it. I tried everything I could think of for a couple weeks, even emailed the support team,but now I give up!

  68. Danessa Rivera-avatar

    Great idea and features and would love it if it actually worked! I'm so bummed. The time limit is reached when it hasn't even been used, and one app shows a last usage of 47hrs, yet has never been opened. :(

  69. Cherry Family-avatar

    I set up device time limits and it instantly blocked my child. next I tried the app limits and it blocked my child before she used the app. The interface is nice but it doesn't work correctly on my device.

  70. Trillian M-avatar

    Useless. Only few apps listed. Cannot limit browser and half the apps. Takes hours to configure because of sloppy interface

  71. viridian clan-avatar

    My sister put this as an app. I got a virus and I had to go to the phone company and have them back my phone up. I'm literally screaming at her.

  72. Ülari V-avatar

    There is a easy way to uninstall this app for a teen. Hold the button for uninstalling. Then when it says you can not, you actually can disable the uninstall protection and try again, and this time it is uninstallable withput pin. Other than that, the app is really good.
