Cyber bullying is an extension of bullying in the real world today. When I was a kid, the bullying stopped when you got home unless said bully lived up the street. Today with kids of all ages having mobile phones the bullying can go in any time of day or night. A new app for Android has surfaced called Bully Block that will let you block unwanted callers and texters.
The app will block private or unknown numbers as well. It also has reporting features that allow the bullying text or emails to be saved to show the police or school authorities. It can be used by employers to be sure that their employees aren’t making inappropriate calls and tests too.
It also has a Bully Capture feature that allows the person being bullied to hit a record button and then record what is going on secretly. You might record your own beat down, but at least you can feel better knowing you have the evidence to prove what happened. The app will give blocked numbers a recorded message or a busy signal when they call. The Bully File portion of the app will file all pics, texts and videos as well. The app is on the Android Market right now for $1.29.
