Life-Saving Smartphone App Released Early to Public by Legacy Technology Group
ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--
In the wake of recent school shootings, Legacy Technology has moved its
initial public release date forward to offer SmartSheperd, its newest
smartphone APP, to parents who wish to arm their children with a quick
and convenient method to seek help in an emergency situation by simply
pressing a panic button on their smartphone.
"Mobile Technology helps us move at light-speed, get more done and stay
connected to our friends and family anywhere at anytime. But these
phones are no longer for just making calls - they are Smart - and
present a gateway of risk to our children," said company CEO Damon
Davis. "We don't know who they are texting, talking to, websites they
visit or worse - where they are when not at home."
Parents who subscribe to SmartShepherd can rest assured that if their
child is in immediate danger, simply utilize the APP's feature that
emits an audible deterrent to ward off attackers and at the same time
sends designated emergency contacts a TXT, GPS coordinates, and photos
about the incident.
This security feature isjust one of many included in this innovative
service. SmartShepherd also provides subscribers the ability to protect
their children against more subtle, everyday threats such as bullying,
drug use, pornography, sexting, pedophiles and suicide by providing
access and monitoring to text and internet information going into and
out of the smartphone through an online portal. Parents can choose to
capture clues and take action.
"It isn't about trust. It's about knowing," said Davis. "SmartShepherd
helps turn the technology into a tool for protection and peace of mind
for less than the price of a couple Starbucks lattes a month."
For years, Legacy Technology's SmartShepherd services has been helping
customers around the world leverage this technology for a variety of
purposes but now the company is determined to make it available and
affordable to every parent and runs on AT&T (News - Alert), Sprint, Verizon, TMobile,
Straight Talk and virtually every carrier in the world. Visit www.smartshepherd.com
