The Kitestring app is for anyone trying to pacify worried parents, as well as those going on trips to slightly unsafe countries. Users can set the app up by setting up a time to receive a certain text. If they then do not respond within a time limit, a message is sent out to emergency contacts making them aware of a potential missing person.
For anyone planning on taking a trip in the near future, this app could be a good backup plan just in case something goes wrong. Certain countries are known to have less security than others, so it doesn't hurt to take a few precautions.
The Kitestring app may seem a tad overprotective, but in some situations this piece of tech is completely necessary.
