    My kids like to use my iPad to surf the Internet or play games, I downloaded a free trial iKeyMonitor and installed it on my iPad. It's very easy to install by following the step 1 instructions. It works invisibly, and is very powerful and amazing, beyond my imagination. I'm going to have a look on its websites.

    I just downloaded a trial to my iPhone. It looks different now, more professional.
    Another tip, it's not necessary to finish all the 3 steps. Any one of them will get it installed. Step 1 is recommended. Good luck and have fun!
