Project Description

Problem : App To limit or control use-age of Apps on iPad/iPhone/Android phones.
Solution : APPTROLL : This app once installed, will present the user following option :
* App Restriction : ON/OFF.
* If App Restriction is turned ON the first time, enter a restriction password that would be used to access APPRTOLL the next time around or to switch it OFF (Disable it)
* To turn OFF App restriction, user will need to enter the above password. On incorrect password, it will not turn OFF. On correct password, it will un-hide all Apps (if hidden) and turn itself OFF.
* If App restriction is turned ON and right password is entered, following should be displayed :

ON/OFF button and if ON, an option to indicate time-window to keep it ON for (Start-time : Duration). See the attached screen-shot of how it should look like at high-level

Duration can be : All-Day or in increments of 00:15mins like 00:15hr, 00:30hr, 01:00hr, 01:15hr and so on..

* If a particular App is marked "OFF", then that first stop that App if it is running and then Hide it. Users should not be able to access it anywhere unless it is switch back to ON in APPTROLL
* Default option is all apps are "ON" for "All-Day".
* If a particular App is marked "ON" and if Duration is "All-Day", the app is never hidden from the user
* If a particular App is marked "ON" and if Duration is a window (Start-time : Duration), the app will remain hidden from user until "Start-time" when it is un-hidden for the time-length of "Duration" and user should be able to access it like usual. One minute before the "Duration" expires, present "Warning to the user that this app is going to be blocked and that he should save his work to avoid data loss" At expiry of the "Duration", the app is stopped and hidden so that user cannot access it.
* There should be easy way to apply same time-window (Start-time : Duration) for All or Selected app to avoid need to repeat same actions.
* If APPTROLL is asked to be uninstalled ask for password. If correct password is entered, all apps should be un-hidden like before with no restrictions and uninstall APPTROLL
