Hidden camera phone app

As we continue to advance down the technology highway, more and more apps are being created—more than we parents can keep up with.  Unfortunately, many of  the inappropriate ones are being downloaded by our children without us knowing about it.

Yik Yak   – This app is fairly new and already being blocked by schools. It allows posters up to submit up to 200 characters which can be view by their closest 500 “Yakkers,” determined by GPS tracking. It’s gaining the reputation of an app that allows you to anonymously post sexually explicit and abusive language.

Down – This app has a slogan that goes something like, “The anonymous, simple, fun way to find friends who are down for the night.” Connected with Facebook, friends are categorized in either someone they would like to hang around or someone to hook up with.  Originally, this app was known as “Bang with Friends.”
