New app allows user to remotely lock others' phones

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A mom gets creative to tackle the problem of teenagers not answering their cell phones and becomes a business woman in the process.

Sharon Standifird was livid when she tried to call and text her kids and they ignored her.

So she took matters into her own hands, developing an app forcing them to respond. It shuts down their phones completely.

"As a parent, all I have to do is touch the app, tap his name. To lock Bradley's device, enter at least a 4-digit unlock code. And now I'm going to press 'lock Bradley's phone.' And if you watch Bradley's phone, it's going to go blank. Bradley needs to call me because I'm the person that has the unlock password," Standifird explains. 

The Ignore No More app is only available for Androids at this point, and costs $1.99.
