CLEVELAND - What parent doesn't want to know where their child is at all times? Now there are apps for that.
According to Time magazine, 20 million smartphone users have already downloaded the child tracking app "Life 360." This application allows family members to alert each other once they've made it safely to their destination. "Life 360" is available on iPhone, Android or Blackberry.
"Securafone" is another popular tracking application amongst parents because it can put virtual barriers around their child. If the child goes beyond the barrier, like school grounds, you get an alert.
The kid tracking apps are available in your phone's app store. Some are free, others you have to pay for.
If your child doesn't have a smartphone, AT&T, Verizon and Sprint provide a family locator feature for an extra fee.
