The Changing Functionality of Apps: Parents Be Aware

October 9, 2013

Many parents who refuse to purchase a cellphone for their child will often purchase a digital device such as an iPod or iPad instead, believing that they are safer. What these same parents do not understand is that there are several apps on the market that give these same devices the ability to make phone calls via their built-in Wi-Fi functionality. Some of these apps include:

  • Textme
  • Pinger
  • Skype
  • Fring
  • iCall
  • Google Voice
  • Line2

Don’t fool yourself into believing that your kids don’t know about these apps, because trust me… THEY DO. And they share such information with their peers! The teaching point for parents is that apps can often change the functionality of your child’s digital device. As a parent, you need to know about the different apps that your kids have on their digital devices and what they can do!
