Mobile internet accountability app

Postby jdim44 » Wed Feb 20, 2013 12:37 pm

In the churches fight to combat pornography and to help us as church members avoid/overcome the temptation or addiction of pornography why not develop an Internet browser that will help its members be accountable. This would allow a spouse, parent, or even a bishop to get a weekly report emailed to them about the Internet usage of a person who chooses to sign up and use the app. This would greatly help those who are struggling with a pornography addiction to build trust and over come that temptation. It will also help those that don't have a problem to not fall into temptation. Right now for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry there are not any well made apps that do this. The best one I have found is x3 watch but it has lots of problems but they have the right idea. From what I have seen from this site there are a lot of church members that volunteer their time and talents to improving the church apps and I really appreciate this. I don't have the knowledge to do that. But I think that with church support we could make an app to really help those in need of something like this that will extend beyond church members making it an awesome missionary tool as well. Please think about this and let me know of any feedback you have on this idea.

Sounds like something best done by a private developer. The interest is not limited to church members. The efforts needed to develop the app on the leading platforms of the day is not trivial.

As it is, the church seems to be struggling with the apps that have a broader appeal to the members. I seriously doubt they are going to go into the software business for such a specialized need.

Been a few months since this posted...
Try, works great as an accountability option or to check on the kids' activity. The best one I've seen. It is purely an accountability app so no filtering, although there is an attempt to rate sites and send immediate reports for any innapropriate viewing.
$5 per month for unlimited devices and a central account to view reports and devices.
monitors all activity on Windows PC or Mac (not just internet usage) by logging the title of each window that is opened/ made active.
They also have a browser app for Android and iOS that works pretty well.
