"Just does not work for limiting Application run time"

October 12, 2009  |  By clinton--2008

 |  Version: KidsGoGoGo X 12.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been trying to use the Application timer functionality that KGGG has in it but without success
I have uninstalled and reinstalled, repaired permissions all according to the KGGG support site but nothing works. And when I say nothing I'm also including KGGG tech support.
Despite numerous post to the support department I have never received any response.
If anyone knows of another Application that can limit the run time for specific applications I'd love to know.
Peace,
c

"Kids Go Go Go! is great!"

March 05, 2005  |  By justbob_dotmac

 |  Version: KidsGoGoGo X 8.9

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Kids Go Go Go! blocks kids sites for their accounts; open internet for mine.

I see a lot of comments about the documentation. This program is made in Japan. They have apparently used a translator program to create the english User Guides. They are making a nice program available to us; I hope we do not fault them too much for doing so.

Here's how to make it work: Install and Launch Kids Go Go Go! Choose a Filtering option and your're done. Just Hide the App. Next Log In Kids Go Go Go! will work in the background. If you have a kids log in in addition to yours, turn Off Filtering in your account. Deselect Disallow user's changes to settings. Now, Fast User Switch to your kid's account. Launch Kids Go Go Go! Choose the filtering option. Kids Sites Only searches a database. Harmful Sites searches the site to determine if it should be blocked. Hide Kids Go Go Go! Switch back to your account and select Disallow user's changes to settings. Hide Kids Go Go Go! (You may have to click OK...I forget which is correct right now.) When you log out and back in Kids Go Go Go! will be functioning in the background.

"Won't uninstall; no help at all from developer"

September 07, 2004  |  By tgilson_dotmac

 |  Version: KidsGoGoGo X 8.6.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I tried KidsGoGoGo a year or more ago, and it didn't meet my needs. Recently I thought I'd try it again, so I downloaded it. I got a message immediately that said my trial period had expired. Apparently the prior uninstall had not worked completely. So I decided to uninstall it again using the supplied uninstaller, and it just crashes every time. It's running in the background; it puts an unremovable message on my desktop. I contacted the developer about this, and got no response. On his website it says I need to be a registered user for him to pay attention to my message. I'm not paying for that!

"It works"

June 01, 2004  |  By scrags

 |  Version: KidsGoGoGo X 8.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I too have been using this product for years. It works. Like most programs you MUST follow the installation instructions. No doubt about it, the documentation is challenging (and sometimes comical) due to translation problems. But I have found that once you install it you pretty much forget about it until the next update. I have always read the reviews here and wondered why so many people have so many problems with it. Over the years I have installed it on several different machines with many different OS versions (including OS 9) and never had a problem. Here's what it REALLY needs: A publishing house to buy the program, change the name, rewrite the documentation and promote it as the best software out there for protecting your kid(s) on the internet.

"Give them a break"

April 28, 2004  |  By twh

 |  Version: KidsGoGoGo X 8.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
All I hear is whining from different posters about how much they don't like this product. YOU ARE WRONG! I have used this product for my two sons, ages 9 and 11 and it works. It defintely is not fancy and if you don't read the install instructions you can screw yourself up.

Can the developer improve the product by writing better instructions - defintely. But give him the benefit of the doubt. Whenever I had a problem and emailed him, he responded usually within 12-24 hours.

Give the product a try. For what it does and its cost it is worth it.

"A no go"

I agree this thing screws my system up too much. Not recommended, and very hard to get rid of. Uninstaller doesn't even work.

"Away you run from this fastly! No! No! No!"

March 23, 2004  |  By riffraf

 |  Version: KidsGoGoGo X 8.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Installed the demo Macintosh of the System Panther. I no understand of the documentt not fully or with much of well. Frighten me of what is to happen. Maybe program of software is good but I am not reading of instruction with clear. Maybe instruction looks of English language but is of other type. Put on program to stop child of looking boobies. See boobies no problem. See much part of Internet no like for the baby.

I don't know why I ever tried this crap, and only hope that I got it all off my machine! It doesn't seem to work, and I have never seen such hideous pidgeon English anywhere.

I would even recommend FaxSTF before I would look at this steaming pile of mung a second time. (I think that KidsGoGoGo is not a fax program. I don't really know what the heck it is. I do know that I hate it more than I hate SmithMicro, and that's a whole lot of hate. I would also be willing to bet that FaxSTF does a better job filtering Internet content than this piece of [expletive][scatalogical term].!!

"It Works"

November 07, 2003  |  By ShepTX

 |  Version: KidsGoGoGo X 7.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've used this since about 7.5. Works pretty much as advertised. The only real drawback is the documentation and menus. Localization more than just running your verbiage through a translater. Some of the panels leave you guessing just exactly how the feature is supposed to work. Having said that, once you figure your way around it, it seems to work just fine.

I would use the network version, but the ability to control the time usage is as important (young kids).

"Good Value!"

Summary

One can change the page it turns browsers to on the application. Its pretty simple. Unfortunately English is not their storng point and the upgrade install always makes me re-register, but when it works, it blocks well and allows LONG passowrds which I love.
