Even though kids are more plugged in than their parents in many cases, some parents may have a hard time getting in touch with their kids by phone. One father in Great Britain created an app to solve that problem.

The app called ReplayASAP gives parents some serious control over the children’s phones.

When you send a message to someone with the app, it sounds an alarm on their phone even if it’s on silent mode.

The message will appear over whatever else the kid is doing on their phone and an alarm will continue sounding until the message is acknowledged.

This feature allows parents to confirm that their child has seen the message and makes the teens reply to stop the noise and to be able to use their phone.

For iPhone users, the app is not yet available.

However, it’s available on the Google Play Store for Android users.
