A Houston Mom tired of her son not responding to her calls or texts, invented an app that he couldn’t ignore! It locked his phone.


Sharon Standifird invented, Ignore No More, an app that lets parents control their kids’ smartphones when they are ignored.

Although the kid can always call 911, it takes away texting, gaming and the ability to call friends.

She spent months working with developers to create an app that parents could just open up, click their kid’s name, enter an unlock code twice and then click to lock the phone.


The kid’s screen goes blank. When they tap the phone, they get a list of pre-approved contacts and they must call one to receive the password to unlock their cell.

Ignore No More costs $1.99 and currenly available for Androids on Google Play but an iPhone version is on the horizon.
