Kytephone is a mobile app that allows smartphones to become kid-safe devices. Built for Android, the app helps parents make sure their children are using their cell phones for all the right reasons. In fact, after it is installed the mobile app is unable to be shutdown by kids. Key features for parents are the location-tracker, call control and application control. With the application only being available on Android, parents are able to pay a more reasonable amount for their child’s smartphone than an iPhone. Kytephone raised just under half a million in seed funding.
