Need to check in with your kid and want him to return your text in a flash?

Pique their interest by typing something attention-getting followed by an exclamation mark, for example, you’re not going to believe this! Or I have a question to ask you! Seeing an exclamation mark in a text message makes people sit up, take notice and respond in minutes.

This dad went to the next level and developed an APP to ensure that his son will text him back. Nick Herbert created the app ReplyASAP.  The app takes over the phone's screen and sounds an alarm; this forces your kid to respond to the important text. A reply is absolutely needed if they want to be able to use their phone again. The app also has a feature that notifies parents when their child has seen the message.
