Protect Your Kids with an SOS App for Smartphones

Once again, as a protective dad, I felt compelled to post an article that showcased a couple of decent “SOS” apps that can help protect our children. These are fairly self-explanatory, but here’s a quick 30,000 foot view:

You simply install one of these apps on your kid’s phone, configure it once and all they have to do is click a single button if they are ever in trouble and need help. Clicking the SOS button will immediately send an SOS message with an exact GPS location (map) to pre-configured contacts.

That’s it.

I’ve tested the app for Droid and it works great. I must say, having this installed gives a protective parent greater peace of mind.
