Annoyed with the kids hooked to ipads or smartphones during meals? Relax; here is an app that automatically locks their gadgets at meal times to get the family back to the dinner table.
The free DinnerTime app shows children how much time they have for dinner and then locks their phone.
Once the parent activates the DinnerTime function on their kids’ devices, everything from apps and the internet to texting and calling friends is temporarily disabled.
Mr Richard Sah, the creator of the device said, he noticed children find technology to be addictive at times and are easily distracted by their devices at dinnertime and bedtime.
The app also shows a countdown clock so that children are aware of exactly how much time remains before they are able to access their device again.
Simply install the app on the parent’s device (Android phone or iPhone) and child’s Android device, and DinnerTime can be activated anytime, anywhere, he added.
