As earlier reports suggested Samsung has been working on a new parental control app for quite some time for its Galaxy devices. Now, Marshmallow is also the latest Android software that has been in talks for a long time. Interestingly, there has been an app called Samsung Marshmallow that would be stealing all the limelight. The ultimate aim of this app would be to teach the kids when it is the right time to use the phone and when to put it down.

The Samsung Marshmallow would be a parental control app, however, the tech giant refuses to just stick to it. The app is not just made to enforce rules. According to SamMobile, it has been designed to teach the kids about proper smartphone usage. The app would help the parents set bedtimes, set internet usage time, block several apps and more.

Along with these features, the Samsung Marshmallow app also helps the kids learn about using smartphone properly, Android Authority reported. Interestingly, the app comes with a reward system and kids would be able to earn Marshamallow points through good online behavior. However,bad behavior online would mean losing points. After collecting enough good points kids can ask their parents for a card. The kids can then use the card in a gift shop.

But again, not all good things last and there's a sad news. The Samsung Marshmallow app is a Samsung exclusive app. This clearly means that only the Samsung devices would support the app. Some of the devices that would support this app include Galaxy S8/S8 Plus, S7/ S7 Edge, S6, S6, S6 Edge Plus, Note 5, S5 and more. Along with these, the app would also be supported on Samsung Galaxy A series devices, Galaxy J series devices and Galaxy S series devices running Android 5.0 and up.
