You never knew when your child is safe from harm. Yesterday, one of my neighbor's son has been kidnapped and got killed by the person who abducted the child. It's very alarming on my part because I also have a child and he's a a boy and as a parent I can feel the pain of the child's parents. So that's why I always make sure the safety of my child. I found out about this Panic Button Application which works on smart phone like BlackBerry, iPhone and Android. It's about mobile phone safety of your child nor kids. Now you can protect your child nor kids even you're not with them.
