  • This Dad Created an App That Locks Your Teenager’s Phone Until They Answer Your Texts

Leave it to Dad of the Year Nick Herbert to come up with a brilliant fix in the form of an app. He bought his son a smartphone so he could reach him at all times. The App takes over the phone screen of the user if any call or message is ignored and then it starts an alarm which doesn't stop until the user answers his/her phone.

Other messaging apps will let you know when a message was delivered and seen, but sometimes a reply is needed.

The message will appear on their phone over what ever they are doing, and make a noise until they interact with it, even if the phone is on silent.

A notification will be sent to the person who sent the message so that person will know the message has been read. GoodHousekeeping reports that there are apps that allow a parent to remotely lock a phone as well such as Ignore No More.

Whether you're on board with these apps' concepts or not, every parents can recognize that raising kids in the digital age we live in can get tricky. There are also work situations where you need to get hold of work colleagues quickly.

ReplyASAP is now available for Android in the United States and Herbert has plans to release the app on iOS shortly.

There are also external apps that you can download for both iPhone and Android that will override silent mode. The first message is free, but future messages do require a one-time payment.
