My experience ended with a big hug, tears and a lesson learned from my son. But there are sadly many not so happy endings. Today Appiness Ltd., ” launched Lost Kidz, a mobile app that provides parents and caregivers with an instant alert system for kids who are lost or missing“. The more people that download the app, the more effective it is at helping send alerts out to make communities safer.
The Lost Kidz app is free to receive alerts and is only $0.99 annually (in-app purchase) to send out unlimited alerts (and create a profile for your kids) during the subscription period. Although the app currently is only available in iOS, the Android version is under development and will be available later this year. I can’t wait to load the Android app to my phone when it comes out, not only for my kids but also to participate in a safer community for all.
