Once the allotted time has passed the app will automatically shut down YouTube.com Only entering the code again will allow YouTube.com to be re-launched. – Great for classroom management, or home programs – Allows teachers or parents to easily control time spent on YouTube – Easy to use and customize
  2. Hans Rosling will be proud. A fantastic visualizer of global data.
