Monitor and Control you Child’s Phone. Good on ya Mum!!

Ignore no more AppAre you tired of calling or texting your child and not getting a response? For some reason they seem to go into some sort of paralysis when Mum or Dad calls.  You get the following excuses: my battery went flat, I left it in my car/bag/friend’s bag….you know what I mean!

An American Mum has created a new mobile app called Ignore No More, which forces kids to call their parents back.

After parents download and setup the app, they just have to tap their child’s name and enter a four-digit code.  Your child’s phone locks up until they call you, or another selected contact back.  When they do call back, you are able to tell them what the password is during the call so that the phone can be used again!  Magic!  Good on ya Mum!
