Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2013 -- MamaBear App, the first-ever all-in-one parenting app to monitor location, social media and safe-speed driving, announced today a number of enhancements to help both children and parents.
For parents, a larger map view offers a one tap to all information and more details on a child’s activities such as their current and recent locations and any recent alerts received. School and safe place alerts are now combined into a simpler feature with alerts letting parents know when their child has arrived or left places.
Kids can now check-in using fun emoticons to share how they're feeling, and can choose their own wallpaper for the app background.
“We listened to our loyal users and incorporated their feedback for enhancements to the new MamaBear design,” said Robyn Spoto, President and Co-Founder of MamaBear App. “Adding the arrival alert to safe places provides additional comfort to parents, and the new child logged in view makes MamaBear more entertaining for the kids, and supports the app as a family communication tool.”
Designed for simplicity, MamaBear App works in three steps:
1. Parents or guardians install and register for MamaBear on their smart phones and tablets for family monitoring view.
2. Kids install MamaBear and log in with credentials set by the parent displaying the kid's view of the app.
3. Parents can see their kids on a map and customize their alert settings to get the precise information they want among:
- Safe place arrival and departure alerts
- Restricted place alert
- Facebook and Instagram monitoring for new friends and followers, photo upload, photo or post tags, as well a restricted words. Parents set their preferred list of restricted words to receive notifications.
- Driving speed alerts
