[prMac.com] Houston, Texas - Distal Industries, LLC today is please to announce the release of its latest iPhone application, CurfewAlert. The app is a smart alarm that lets teenagers know when to leave to make it home on time for curfew. Users enter their home address and curfew time. The app automatically determines how long it will take to drive home from wherever they are fires an alarm notifying them when its time to leave.
"I can't tell you how many times I got in trouble for coming home late when I was young simply because I was too busy having fun. An app like this would've made my life a lot easier," said David Colvin, founder of Distal Industries.
One of the most powerful features of CurfewAlert is its integration with the iPhone's location services. The app continually calculates the driving distance from the user's current location to their home address. And when the user travels to a new location, the app automatically recalculates the drive time and adjusts the alarm.
To extend iPhone battery life, CurfewAlert runs in the background allowing users to use other applications simultaneously. "The idea was to create a curfew app that you could set and forget when you went out. That way you can be free to have fun with your friends without having to worry about when its time to leave," explained Colvin.
In addition to setting a curfew alert, the app also lets users set a reminder up to 60 minutes before its time to go. "This gives users a little extra time to say goodbye to friends, walk to their car, etc.," explained Colvin. The app also lets users save an unlimited number of favorite home locations and view driving directions.
