    I just got Samsung Galaxy tabs for my kids. I was searching through the play store for a good parental control app and I thought there would be a ton of them with lots of different features but I didn't really see that.

    can anyone recommend their favorite parental control app?

    I mainly would like to be able to control the amount of time they use the device, and which apps they can use, .... I've figured out how to prevent downloading paid apps, or apps that have a high maturity level. But I'd almost rather turn off the play store completely, unless we're sitting down together and picking apps that are appropriate. also I'd like to prevent them from stumbling on adult/porn websites.

    Any advice?

    thanks

    The only issue with these is you cannot start them up right away if you turn off the device then turn them back on i believe, or at least they take a minute or so to get going.

    Anyhow though, i always use this list of apps to let people try some out themselves: Top Parental Control Apps for Android - AndroidPIT
