New App Locks Teen’s Phone Until They Reply To Parents Text

This is awesome, unless you’re a teenager who likes to ignore your parent’s messages.

A new app has been invented that will lock a teen’s phone until they have replied to their parent’s message!

SimpleMost says the app, which “is called ReplyASAP, and it gives parents some serious messaging power.

Here’s how it works: When you send a message to someone using ReplyASAP, it sounds an alarm on their phone even if the phone is on silent. The message appears over whatever else they’re doing on the phone, and the alarm continues until the message is acknowledged. This allows parents to confirm that their child has seen the message, and prompts teens to reply to stop the noise and get back to whatever else they wanted to do on their phone.”

How cool/scary is THAT kids? Eek.
