There are hundreds of parental control apps out there and what you are seeing in your app store is just a scratch of the surface. You see there are also apps that you can install on your phone that isn’t found in the app store for a number of reasons.
Each of these apps that you see (in the app store or not), they all offer to be unique, the best, the top one there is and so on. You can’t get them all and even try them all, that’s tasking. How can you identify the best, the unique and the Top parental control apps? Just like you, these are the things that parents would ask themselves too.
Popularity and number of downloads: This might necessarily equate to being the best out there because it’s easy to download an app because you were enticed by the colorful ads and promises it delivered but in the end, it was all for show and you uninstalled it.
Good Ratings: Before you download, if you see a lot of ratings for that app see it first. This will give you an idea of how this app performs based on the users that tried it. Not just the ratings but also include the comment section. This will also give you information on how the app performs well with the people that downloaded it.
Great Features and effectiveness: Yes they offer a lot of features that are just too good to be true, but when you download the app the features don’t work. There are features that have a lot of conditions in order to be used (you need to be more techy) which most of us aren’t and if it does its job well.
Availability: The ones that are easily downloaded are the ones that are easily seen and available. It’sthe “not too hard to find ones” that are of top quality and great to use. Most likely these products were already filtered and checked by your device’s OS provider.
Compatibility: Sometimes we download apps only to find out that they aren’t compatible with our device for a number of reasons: not supported OS, phone model and brand, hardware compatibility issues and other bugs that hinder you from downloading that app. The best needs to cater to a lot of things including the ones mentioned.
Safety is their priority: You should be aware that apps like these get information from you when you download it. Remember if it downloads and it asks for your permission to access a lot of features from your device? You need to read the fine print of these apps before you tap immediately and confirm. Because personal information is a very sensitive discussion and you want to make sure that this information won’t cause any harm in the future.
