Want your kids to start picking up your calls? Well, there’s an app for that.
Texas mom Sharon Standifird developed an app called “Ignore No More,” which allows parents to control their teens’ smartphones when they don’t pick up their parents’ calls.
Using the app, parents can lock their kids’ smartphones remotely until the kids call back. Emergency calls can still be placed when the phone is locked.
Standifird, a hero to parents and perhaps now public enemy #1 of many teens out there, joined Elisabeth Hasselbeck this morning with her son.
Standifird was a teacher before educating herself on how to develop apps. The app allows the parent to enter a password to lock their child's phone remotely.
Then, the child cannot do anything on the phone until he/she calls the number back and then gets the password to unlock their phone again.
Standifird said it's available on Google Play for $1.99 and works on Android 3.0 and higher.
