Hey parents! Back to school apps aren’t just for the kids. The Ignore No More! app is designed to block children from using their phones for anything except calling their parents. Never get another ignored phone call from your kids again!
Parents who are fed up with their kids ignoring phone call after phone call now have a new ally. The Ignore No More! app is designed to block children from using their phones for anything except calling their parents or an emergency responder. Developed by Mountaineer Technology Ventures, a Texas-based technology firm, Ignore No More! claims to force kids to return Mom or Dad’s calls by letting the parent activate a lock on their phone. The function also prevents the child from texting or accessing the Internet until the parent deactivates the lock.
Only one master device is needed to control an entire household of phones but more can be added if desired. Once the parent sets up the app, he or she can register as many kid accounts as deemed necessary. The parent is then able to manipulate the child’s device remotely, listing certain phone numbers on the emergency contact list, such as a mother’s cell phone or 911.
Should the child attempt to disable the block on his or her phone, a notification is sent to the parents’ phones.
The app is available for download on Google Play and is only compatible with Samsung, Nexus, HTC and LG phones. The company hasn’t said whether the app will come to iOS in the future.
