If you're a parent who has tried and failed (repeatedly) to get a hold of your kid but gets no response, you're not alone.

Luckily, there's a dad out there that was smart enough to make an app for just those circumstances.

If a call or text from a parent trying to get in touch isn't answered an alarm will ring until a response is sent.

The app is called ReplyASAP and it's a must have for any frustrated parent with their child's lack of communication.

A Dad Created An App That Every Kid With A Phone Will Dread

There are plenty of other good uses for the ReplyASAP app outside of dealing with kids who ignore their parents.

Fox 32 says other uses include "like finding a lost phone, changing your drink order if a friend is ordering drinks at the bar, and work situations when you need to contact coworkers quickly."

One small issue, the app is currently only available for Android devices. That means parents with kids who are iPhone users are going to be ignored just a bit longer.
