Web monitoring mobile apps for parents


Mobile app ‘Nischint’, developed by Dubai-based Raghav Mimani comes with the option of monitoring phone calls outgoing, incoming and missed calls while also keeping a tab on logs of SMS.

‘Nischint’ also provides a feature where parents can be put on alert in case of the usage of a ‘Child emergency Shout Out with GPS location’ to rush immediate help in a crisis.

“Our ultimate goal is to create the most advanced open platform that adds new and interesting applications to keep up with the constantly changing threat landscape.

“While making the experience deep but safe. Our vision is to ensure the next 1 billion children are digitally secure,” says Mimani.

In India, it is not just metro city parents who are concerned about their child’s safety on the world wide web, but a large chunk of app users hail from Tier?II cities, says Raghav.

“60 per cent of our families are coming from tier II cities like Gwalior, Mysore, Pune. We have been able to get 15000 families on board with us in six months,” he says.

These mobile applications start ups have also gained recognition from technology platforms. ‘Mama Bear’ has been awarded one of the “World’s Most Promising New Companies” by CNBC, and ‘Nischint’ bagged the Best App in the Lifestyle category at The Global App Summit 2014 in Dubai.
