Customize App Categories

We try to make ZenScreen as simple to use as possible. So we automatically categorize every app into 3 categories:

Entertainment: We count time spent on these apps and block them based on your settings

Productive: These apps are blocked only during Calm Nights and Quiet time

Ignore: These apps are never counted or blocked 

While we try to assign each app to the best category possible but we know that we will not get it right for each app. So now, we provide you with the ability to change the category of any app with one tap.

iOS App – Standard vs Advance Mode

We are constantly working hard to make ZenScreen easier to install and use. As part of that ongoing effort, we have introduced 2 modes of how you can use the iOS app.

Standard Mode: This mode is super simple to install and get started. In a matter of 2-3 taps, you are all set. You can use all smart controls like Smart Mornings, Zen Breaks, Daily time limit, etc.

What’s great about this mode is that if you already have an MDM Profile (Mobile Device Management) installed on your iOS device via your school or work, you can still use ZenScreen with Standard Mode.

Advance Mode: Once you have installed the standard mode, you will get the option to install Advance Mode for FREE. In Advance mode, we install an MDM profile that allows us to provide some more features to you. For instance:

  1. You can see time spent on individual apps (as opposed to the category of apps)
  2. You have the choice to make all apps disappear at night (if kids play offline games)
  3. You can change the category of each app installed on the device (as opposed to a list of ~100 in standard mode)

Hopefully, one of these modes will work great for you and your family and you continue your journey to better digital health 🙏🏼
