New Android Monitoring and Filtering Software Hits the Market

Jacksonville, FL November 2nd 2010 – Retina-X Studios, LLC, announced today

the immediate availability of Mobile Nanny for smartphones running the

Android operating system. The hybrid software and service is available now in

the Android Market.

This parental control system allows parents to effectively monitor, filter

and restrict their child’s Android phone. The software records and blocks

the activities the parent specifies, and can restrict usage of the device to

a schedule the parent configures.

According to 2010 data from a Pew Research survey, one in three teens send

more than one hundred text messages per day. Many parents are not fully aware

of how often or exactly what their child is texting about. With sexting on

the rise, many parents forget the responsibility to know whether or not their

child is using a device safely and wisely.

Mobile Nanny, a stealth application, allows parents to see every action their

child performs in an easy online account. Items recorded are every text

message sent or received, every call dialed or received and every photo

captured. Parents can view actions inside the hidden interface on the phone

itself, or they can login to a secure web panel from any web browser to view

logs and GPS locations.

"A teenager with an instant communication tool in the palm of their hands is

a necessity in today’s world. However they are not adults, and many times

they’re not yet mature enough to handle this type of technology. Mobile

Nanny helps parents to bridge the gap between technology and safety." states

James Johns, CEO of Retina-X Studios.

The software also acts as a safeguard in case the worst happens. One Retina-X

Studios customer, Adam Dobbins, had the following to say about the

company’s software. "Our daughter stole our truck, bank cards, credit cards

and the phone. The only way to find her was by tracking with your software.

The police were able to catch her. We would not have caught her as fast as we

did without your software."

For parents simply worried about what their child is doing, simply knowing

isn’t enough. Certain actions performed by a child may need to be

corrected.  The program can block any phone number from SMS and calls.

Websites and applications can also be blocked. The parent can even setup a

specific time schedule that the phone can be used, thus restricting the time

their child can use the device.

Mobile Nanny also includes instant SMS commands the parent can send to the

child’s phone. This allows the parent to track where their child is at any

given time using the Instant GPS Locate command. It also provides an

anti-theft feature for tracking the number of any SIM inserted to the phone

in case the phone is lost or stolen.

A one-year subscription to Mobile Nanny is priced at $49.97. The system

supports Android, BlackBerry, iPhone and Windows Mobile smartphones. The

product is coming soon for Symbian OS and Windows Phone 7. For purchase and
