Basically that sums it up. How much time a day do you allow your child the following (or combination of)....tv, computer, ipad, ipod, video games, etc??? I would say 1/2 to 1 hr tv and a small bit of time to an other device.

 It depends on the day and if it is raining/snowstorm, etc. But in general about an hour of tv time and an hour or so of electronics.

I don't really limit it. I've found when I'm not picky with dd she doesn't play with it as much. And some days not at all.

I do not have a limit but he is usually far too busy playing trains or cars or in school and daycare so he maybe gets an hour or so. More on the weekend.

1-2 hrs typically.  We have apps on it for school as well as "for fun" apps which still teach her things she can use in school.  She needs to do actual reading a book and one school app before she can play the for fun ones.

I don't have a strict limit but they don't watch TV or touch electronics at least 4 days a week.

 Well since we homeschool they are on their computers about 4-6 hours a day. They have free reign on their other electronics but they rarely play on them. My kids prefer to play outside.

My daughter likes to play with modeling clay and color more than anything. But she will play on the computer (Sprout or PBS) for about 15-20 minutes a day. 
On weekends we do watch cartoons before church and a movie before bed as a family.
