After one Texas mom was fed up with her kids ignoring her texts and phone calls, she decided to put a stop to it... By inventing an app!
It's called "Ignore No More" and if they kids won't reply to mom's text messages or phone calls, she can lock their phone down completely. To get access to the phone again, they'll have to get in touch with their parents to get a passcode.
When the phone is in this "lock down mode" it can only be used to call a list of parent-selected contacts, including 911. It can't be used to texting or anything else.
