• Retina-X Studios, LLC, announced today the immediate availability of Mobile Nanny for Android, BlackBerry, iPhone and Windows smartphones.

    This parental control service allows parents to monitor, filter and restrict their child’s smartphone with ease. The software records and blocks the activities the parent specifies, and can restrict usage of the device to a
    schedule the parent configures.

    According to 2010 data from a Pew Research survey, one in three teens send more than one hundred text messages per day. Many parents are not fully aware of what their child is texting about. With sexting on the rise, many parents have a responsibility to know whether or not their child is using a device safely and wisely.

    Mobile Nanny, a stealth application, allows parents to see every action their child performs, including every text message sent or received, every call dialed or received and every photo captured. Parents can view actions inside the hidden interface on the phone itself, or they can login to a secure Web panel from any Web browser to view logs and GPS locations.

    One Retina-X Studios customer, Mike Robertson, had the following to say about the company’s mobile monitoring software. “I am trying to prevent pornography from getting to my child’s phone. I love this program. Its working great and helping me monitor all the text messages from the monitored phone.”

    Simply knowing what they’re doing isn’t enough. Certain actions performed by a child may need to be corrected. The program can block any phone number from SMS and calls. Websites and applications can also be blocked. The parent can even setup a specific time schedule that the phone can be used, thus restricting the time their child can use the device.

    “A teenager with an instant communication tool in the palm of their hands is a necessity in today’s world. However they are not adults, and many times they’re not yet mature enough to handle this type of technology. Mobile Nanny helps parents to bridge the gap between technology and safety,” states James Johns, CEO of Retina-X Studios.

    Mobile Nanny also includes instant SMS commands the parent can send to the child’s phone. This allows the parent to track where their child is at any given time using the Instant GPS Locate command. It also provides an anti-theft feature for tracking the number of any SIM inserted to the phone in case the phone is lost or stolen.

    A one-year subscription to Mobile Nanny is priced at $49.97 in the USA. This hybrid software and service supports Android, BlackBerry, iPhone and Windows Mobile smartphones. The product is coming soon for Symbian OS and Windows Phone 7. For purchase and download information, visit http://www.mobile-nanny.com.
