Melville, New York – OptimizedApps.com, an innovative developer of mobile software solutions that tackle social problems and work to shape the future of child safety, has announced the launch of Bully Button Mobile Bullying Assistance and Alert for iPhone. The app, available at iTunes for $1.99 and one of the first of its kind, features an exclusive system of recording and reporting a bullying event which allows users to report a bullying event directly to school authorities or parents with the touch of a button.
Bully Button is one of many applications that OptimizedApps.com is in the process of developing, in its mission to improve the quality of life for children through mobile computing. Currently, Bully Button is based on an audio recording and reporting system, but the app will soon be equipped with video and GPS, and several other elements, that capture, record and comprehensively document an event to ensure that there is no ambiguity surrounding the chronology and truthfulness of a bullying event. In responding directly to the pain and suffering children go through, so often, because of bullying, Bully Button is also equipped with a Suicide Hotline Button so that no situation evolves into one that ends in a preventable tragedy.
“Young people are not alone, anymore – they have a way to fight back using mobile technology for the good,” said OptimizedApps CEO, Thomas Murphy. “Bully Button will become the new method of reporting and documenting this horrible act that affects so many children. This is our first version of a long line of anti-bullying applications and features we will be launching, and we are confident that this technology is going to help minimize the effects on children of the rampant bullying that takes place in our society.”
Bully Button also allows its users to quickly call parents and school officers; and uses one-touch recording so it is quick and easy to use. In a world in which new technology can help people in all realms, Bully Button offers a practical and useful method of limiting the suffering of children at the hands of bullies and abusers.
