Lockitz! App Is Child Lock for Your Phone

If you’ve ever been around kids, you know they’re obsessed with two things: touching things and playing on smartphones. You want to entertain kids, but it’s dangerous when they get their chubby, little fingers on your most important device. Mompreneur (mom plus entrepreneur) Melanie Lefkowitz became a mom for the first time three years ago. Her son kept picking up her phone and locking her out. She wondered if all moms experienced this, so she asked all her friends. They all agreed, and her first thought was ‘Wouldn’t it be great if there was an app that could fix this?’ Enter Lockitz!.

Child lock for your phone

How does Lockitz! keep little hands out? When you know you’ll be leaving your phone, turn on the app, lock your phone and set it down. As soon as a child picks it up, they will see one of three “fun screens.” Lockitz! offers as many buttons as their little heart desires, so they will stay entertained. You don’t have to worry because the app won’t allow access to your passcode screen or anything else inside your phone. So, how do adults get out of the child lock? Hidden on the screen is a tiny, secret escape button. When Lefkowitz first saw the app design, she didn’t even know the button was there!

A mom’s advice for entrepreneurs

We know that moms are already superheroes. How can they juggle entrepreneurship, too? Lefkowitz had no previous experience in app development. None of her friends or family members knew about the business either. Where do we go with our questions? The internet! She found Integral App Studios online, and their expertise helped her build her dream app. Her main piece of advice to mompreneurs is to work with people you trust. “If you don’t trust the people you’re working with, you have nothing,” she said. Check out this mom’s app anywhere you buy your smartphone apps!

Never lose hope. The strength of any idea or construct depends on belief. If hope is lost, belief follows. Then a construct is nothing more than words recorded. #MondayMorning #MondayMotivation
