Freezes your kid’s phone immediately with new app until they answer your messages

A father fed up with his kid ignoring his texts turned his frustration into creativity.

Nick Herbert created a new app called ReplyASAP, which takes over the recipient’s phone screen and sounds an alarm. The ringing won’t stop until the text or call is answered – even if the phone is on silent.

You will then get a notification that the message has been read.

Herbert explains on his website that the idea for the app came from his own personal experiences. His son Ben started secondary school and so Nick bought him a smart phone.

He noticed his son began ignoring his texts and calls, either because he doesn’t hear the phone or it.

But Nick says it’s a mutual thing.

“He will also have the ability to send me these messages – so there is a mutual understanding that using ReplyASAP is only for important things and not because he needs new batteries for his Xbox controller,” Nick wrote.

Nick also talked to his friends about “grown up” uses for the app, like finding a lost phone, changing your drink order if a friend is ordering drinks at the bar, and work situations when you need to contact coworkers quickly.

The ReplyASAP app is available on Android devices, with a lot of Features:

  • Message will be audible even if phone is on silent
  • Noise will continue until it is acknowledged
  • Send message straight away or select a future time
  • Confirmation shown to sender when message read
  • Message will appear over what ever is on the screen
