An innovative cross platform app -- Ignore No More! -- has been launched to help parents remotely control their teenage children's smartphones.
"Ignore No More! is an easy to install app that gives parents control back over their children's phones. If children ignore repeated calls and text messages to reach them, you simply lock their phones until they call you back," said the lead app developer Sharon Standifird.
Salient features of Ignore More App:
- One account controls multiple "child" devices from multiple "parent" devices
- If your children ignore your calls and text messages repeatedly, you can simply lock their phones.
- One other key feature is that disabled phone still can contact emergency services if children are in danger.
- Virtually impossible to be removed by your child. [However, it has been reported that few tech-savvy children are capable of disabling it]
