Getting kids Unglued from screens

Techstination feature for Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   How glued are your kids to the screens of smartphones and tablets?   A company called unGlue has a solution for households designed to help kids manage their time…and spend less of it online.   It allows parents to set limits but at the same time give kids a way to earn credits to go online with their various devices…even game machines. Founder and CEO Alon Schwarz…

“That’s really the beauty of unglue.  We provide a simple way for parents to define the boundaries.  Now kids can decide how they want to spend it, when they want to spend it and on what device.”

Initially unGlue is available for iOS and PCs….an Android version should arrive shortly.   It is available for free and you can find more info at unGlue.com.
