You Don’t Reply To Texts – Your Phone Gets Locked – There’s An App For That


We can see benefits of this app for not only children, but also husbands, wives, even employees as we are sure the technology could be tweaked!


A London father, Nick Herbert, tried of not getting responses to texts that were sent has developed an app that locks phones when they ignore their text messages. The “ReplyASAP” app also sets off an alarm to get children’s attention if their phone is silent.


Herbert created the app because his 13-year-old son was constantly ignoring his texts. ReplyASAP has received more than 100,000 downloads since launching last summer.  The app is only available for Android user right now as Apple has so far rejected the application due to its location and sound features. Nick Herbert said he will continue to make changes to the iPhone version until it is approved.
