Beta Test This: Nearparent
Nearparent Ltd. is looking for beta testers for their Nearparent application for Android handsets. The free application works on devices running 2.1 or higher and can be downloaded from the Android Market immediately. The aim of Nearparent is to help parents and children live a more care-free lifestyle, loosening the apron strings in the process.
In a nutshell, the child user(s) will occasionally check in on the app to let their parents and loved ones know they are okay. Should the child forget their bus ticket or lose their house key somewhere, they can tap the yellow indicator light to notify their parents that they need assistance. If the situation were a little more pressing, they can tap the red button for an urgent notification and let mom or dad know they need to immediate help.
Parents can also help create a trusted group of helpers, adding friends and other relatives to the party. This way the child and parent has peace of mind knowing that others are able to help in the event of an emergency. It takes a village, ya know? Be sure to read up on the Nearparent website for more details and FAQs.
