The “Ignore No More” app might be a hit with parents but will surely be the last app any kid wants on their phone.
Houstonian and military veteran Sharon Standifird was tired of feeling frustrated and worried when her son didn’t answer her calls so she did something about it that might help lots of other parents who have the same problem.
“We need to develop an app that just shuts their phone completely down and they can’t even use it,” she told ABC’s Houston-owned station KTRK-TV. “I got on the Internet and I literally just started researching how to develop an app.”
A few months later, the “Ignore No More” app for android phones was born. All she has do now when her son ignores her calls is go to the app on her phone, look for his name, click on “lock phone” and now her son’s phone can only call back home, a list of selected contacts who have the password he needs to unlock his phone or call 911.
