For those helicopter parents who hover about their kid in constant fear, the internet can be a scary place. Vaughn Simon has created a new app, TattleType, that allows parents to monitor what their kids are typing.
Basically a parent can set up a list of restricted words and then if their kids types those words, the parent is notified. The app can also quote a few words leading up to the restricted word and whatever the child typed afterward for the next 30 seconds. Is it a creepy app that violates your kid's privacy, or a powerful tool to help provide a level of safety to your family?
You can decide for yourself (if you're so inclined) by downloading TattleType for $4.99 on the App Store.
