Mother creates app to stop children ignoring her calls
Ignore No More locks the child's phone until they call their parent back
A mother has developed a new app to stop her children ignoring her calls.
Ignore No More is an android app that gives parents the ability to lock their child’s smartphone so that they cannot use it until they call their parent back.
“When you lock your child’s phone with Ignore No More your child has only two options – he or she can call you back, or call for an emergency responder,” it says on the app’s website.
“Now you have their attention. Ignore No More is an easy to install app that gives you control over your children’s phones.”
The parent sets a password that can unlock the phone, which encourages their child to call back quickly so that they can access their smartphone’s other functions and applications.
User reviews of the app on the Google Play Store show that it is so far quite popular with other like-minded parents: Derek Smith gave it a five star rating and said: “No more late night you tube! Three kids with three Android tablets are now on mandatory lock down at bed time! Two features I would like to see: a timer to auto lock at a certain time, an IOS version so that my wife can use it from her iPhone.”
