Which apps can my child use?
Carrots&Cake works with all apps on the Apple App Store as well as any app you already have downloaded on your device.
Activating Schedule & Account Creation?
The first time you activate the schedule, you will be asked to create an account. Your account email and password can be used on any device. It allows you to access the Parent Zone, edit your child’s schedule, and add additional child profiles.
I can't see the timer for my Carrots&Cake time?
Due to Apple Screen Time limitations, we can't display a timer. Push notifications are sent to children as they reach the end of their Carrot&Cake time to prepare them to come offline.
Why do you require Screen Time Access?
Carrots&Cake works with Apple’s Screen Time API. We rely on Screen Time Access to determine how far along a child is in their Carrots&Cake time, recommend new apps, and update you and your child with progress reports. Apple protects all of your data.
What if I get an error when I allow Screen Time Access?
If you can't set up Screen Time Access, you may have an extra profile installed or have enabled Apple Screen Time Access on another app.

Go to Settings > General > VPN & Device Management. Uninstall the extra profile.

Go to Settings > Screen Time > Apps with Screen Time Access > Toggle off the other apps that have access to Apple Screen Time

After that, you can come back to Carrots&Cake app to allow access again.

Return Carrots&Cake and allow Screen Time Access again.
