Do you have sometimes the impression that you or somebody else wastes to much times with playing games on the tablet / smartphone and thus putting off important tasks to a later time?

With Play-Time-limit, you can limit the daily device usage (number of play minutes and time periods), and if the limit is exceeded the screen is automatically locked. Also the exception to the rule was intended, and thus, the lockscreen contains the option of unlocking a few extra minutes. A widget which shows the remaining play time minutes is also included.

    I installed because of the 1 star rating below from those who had to install because their parents made them to. Which means that this app has to work well! The only thing That is missing from this app is the ability to pause the timer, since my kids are
