DinnerTime Plus is a app by ZeroDesktop that aims to foster healthy device usage habits in kids. Considering that many adults are extremely dependent on apps, social media and the Internet, the purpose of this app is to prevent addiction from taking hold in later life.

DinnerTime Plus allows parents to monitor device usage in real-time, block apps, pause use of the device and set time limits before activities like bedtime, dinner time or homework need to be carried out.

With an in-app purchase, parents are given the ability to remotely monitor up to five devices at once. Beyond encouraging children to take a break once in a while from tablets and smartphones, it likely causes parents to be more mindful of their own device usage as well.
