I use my iPad a lot for reading books, writing and drawing. My problem is, I'm far too easily diverted from these activities. Generally, I'm within wireless range of web access at all times, and I find it an irresistible temptation to check up on things all the time. A stray thought will cross my mind while I'm reading, writing or drawing, and rather than park it away for future reference, I'm into google and following a trail that could lead anywhere and can waste valuable time. This happens repeatedly, despite my best endeavours. I also check the news and the weather a ridiculous number of times a day. I seem to be incapable of restricting this mad impulse. I'm not involved in FaceTime or twitter, but I can see how easily I could be. I still shudder at the memory of a gathering I went to recently where every guest carried their mobile device about like unweaned babies. I even found one couple texting each other while in the same room! I've decided I need a form of parental control on my Internet usage. I toyed with the idea of a straightforward time allowance, installed on my router, allowing me to access the web only during certain hours of the day. The problem with that was I need some functions - email, Skype and FaceTime - to be on permanent alert. So, my question is, is there any way (not involving ongoing self discipline) that would enable me to use my iPad internet capabilities freely during certain hours of the day, and limit it to specific functions (email, Skype, FaceTime, messages) for the rest of the time?
