One Android App Every Parent Should Have

07 March 2011

The one Android app every parent should have, is the official RECALLS.GOV app. It features updates on all the recalls from Consumer Product Safety Commission, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Food and Drug Administration, and Department of Agriculture.

This app is very easy to use. You can scroll down the "Recent Recalls" tab for chronological update on all recalls. There is a search tab for finding the specific product, a barcode tab that allows you to scan the barcode of any product and verify its recall status and lastly, a Tips tab with safety tips. The RECALLS.GOV app also has a "Report Incident" button.

How awesome is this? Well, remember the oball with links that I wrote about glowingly 3 days ago? While writing the post, I was quite disappointed that I couldn't get a picture of the toy off of and now I know why. A recall for it was issued on Thursday the 3rd of March. There goes our favorite toy!

If you don't take anything else away from this blog, please take the message of this post and download the app if you're using an Android phone. Thanks
