ReplyASAP makes it impossible to ignore texts

Posted by

Parents all over the word have sought better ways to communicate with their teenage children, who have simultaneously always found a way to ignore them. Nowadays, a typical teenager would be with his/her phone all day, browsing all he social media sites. But when their parent tries to contact them, their phone is mysteriously unavailable. Now, however, there’s an app that can help parents get through to their teenagers without being ignored. The app is known as ReplyASAP.

This app lets parents contact their children, even if the kids’ phones are always on silent mode. The creator of ReplyASAP, Nick Herbert, realized that the alarm on his phone would go off even when the phone was on silent. Therefore, there had to be a way for text messages to do the same thing. Right now, ReplyASAP is only currently available for Android. All it does is override the silent function of your smartphone, and it can be used as the default SMS or messaging app for your phone. However, it works best as an emergency text app. ReplyASAP

Reports state that this app has a particularly effective way to get you to reply to its texts. When you receive a message through ReplyASAP, you cannot close the screen or turn off the loud ringing noise it makes. The only way to do that is to press a button on the message takeover page. This then displays a read receipt. Now, when you go to the takeover page, you have two options. You can either Cancel or Snooze for 3 Minutes. Both of these actions will be relayed to the sender of the message. If you delete the app, the user will also receive a notification, alerting them to the fact that you no longer have the app on your phone.

The point of this app is to stop people from ignoring text messages, or just replying sooner. It appears that ReplyASAP can actually make this happen. So, if you have someone who needs to curb the habit of ignoring texts, this is the app for you.



  1. Really? This ReplyASAP app will be the first of its kind, I’ve never heard of such SMS app before. it’s a great app but I’m not sure most people will want to have it on their phones, so that anytime they ignore your SMS, it won’t be known to you.

  2. I like the fact that this app lets parents contact their children, even if the kids’ phones are always on silent mode. I will inform my neighbour about it

  3. Well, this is an easy way to override the Silent Mode. Getting disparate apps for solitary functionalities.

    But there is a far better way..

    Any automation app like Macrodroid, Tasker, AutomaGic and the likes would do this (and more) without breaking a sweat.

    In connection with this, you may have your phone on silent mode, and you don’t know where it is. Under the settee, in the bathroom, where? With any of these automation apps, you create something that makes your phone ring out maximally (despite being in silent mode) once the phone receives a specific keyword in an SMS, or a specific number calls it up.

    Also, I have that functionality in my phone that allows my phone to RING OUT once my significant other (or any other numbers I specify) sends an SMS, calls, or sends a WhatsApp message .

    There is another functionality I have that makes the phone ring out even when I have a headset plugged in. That way, I can leave the headset permanently in, leave the phone on the table, and still be sure the phone rings out when there is a call or sms.

    For those who are comfortable with a little tinkering (or have some programming background), get any of these automation apps instead, and make your device really sing!

  4. the App is nice I will try downloading mine later because when you don’t have the app you won’t know the important of it.

  5. Parents need this more, in fact they should be the one to install it on their children’s phone.

  6. Nice App

    “So, if you have someone who needs to curb the habit of ignoring texts, this is the app for you.

    @the above statement I guess you have to compel the person to install the app too.

  7. @Eye_Bee_Kay, its been a while I have seen your comments. I have been mulling over asking Mister Mo, where the veterans of this site like you and Harry are?
