Hello CE:
First, I'm very grateful for Covenant Eyes. Just wanted to know how much your hard work is appreciated.

I am aware that the Android beta app does have filtering technology. I haven't been using that app, though, because there are a lot of things CE's Android app does not do.

I use CE for my Windows 10 tablet, however for several years I've been using the Funamo app (www.funamo.com) for my Android devices. If CE's Android app could add these functions, I'd gladly move my Android devices over to CE, too.

-Set access time ranges for user-selected apps: some of my apps, for instance my browser and my podcast apps, I don't want 24 hour access to. This function allows me to set certain times of day, for instance 5am to 9pm only. But this is not for ALL apps, just those the user wants to be limited.

-Safe Mode protection: the Funamo website explains, "Some Android devices support Safe Mode. ... The Protect Safe Mode feature allows you to set a master password which Funamo uses to lock the screen if the device is booted into safe mode or during the normal boot up time before Funamo protection kicks in."  Basically, this feature removes the temptation of using Safe Mode to access the internet without accountability/filtering.

There are other features Funamo offers that are not available on CE's Android app, but these are the features I would be interested in you all adding to the CE Android app.

thanks,
-Matt
