Halloween is meant to be a fun & scary holiday, but, as parents would undoubtedly agree, not a dangerous one. Costumes, creepy decorations and, for better or worse, eating tons of candy are the hardcore traditions of the ghoulish day, and in today's high-tech world, Iconosys unveils a new Smartphone app that enables responsible parents to know the exact whereabouts of their trick-or-treating kids without requiring them to follow alongside in the family car (risking the lives of others that may stray into their paths, as they are distracted by the task of diligently watching their children from the car window).
Trick or Tracker® can locate a trick-or-treater with the touch of a single button on the user's Smartphone for ultimate convenience.
The app installs easily on both the parent's phone and the child's own phone (note-- if the child is too young to use a Smartphone, Iconosys believes that they are probably too young to trick-or-treat without being accompanied by a parent or guardian in any event).
Messages can be sent to the child's phone using a special code that is picked up and responded to via pre-set coordinates.
The child's phone will have a special "Where Am I?" button, and the parent's phone will have a corresponding "Where's My Kid?" button.
Parents can program their phone to receive messages at regular intervals --or more often if necessary -- revealing exactly where their child is on an hourly basis.
Only the child's phone must be an Android OS phone. For the parent, any Google maps-loaded phone (including iPhone, Blackberry, or Windows Phone 7) will work using a simple manual process.
The app also has a very handy flashlight feature that illuminates the phone screen, casting a ray of light on a child's path and allowing them to travel more safely in the dark or into their treat bag to sneak a treat along their journey.
*Latchkey and Guardsup only available on Android version.
