We hear it all the time; families don’t sit down together for dinner anymore. Statistics show more and more families are eating on the go and when at home just grab a bite whenever they can. There is a new app that may help families gather around the table together more often.

The app is called the Dinner Time app and will show children how long they have until dinner is served before their phone or iPad will lock and it will even show them how long they have at the table before the phone will unlock.

It was made to give kids a break from technology, disabling everything temporarily so they can spend some family time and even get their school work done. They can see the clock so they can tell how much time is remaining until their electronic devices will be unlocked.
