MDC-KIDTRACKER™ CHILD SAFTEY APPLICATION FOR BLACKBERRY® SMARTPHONES APPROVED AND NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH BLACKBERRY® APP WORLD

SAN JOSE, CA, May 13 /CNW/ - MDC (Mobile Data Corp) announces, further to its Press Release dated March 18, 2011, that its recently released MDC-KidTracker™ software application has been approved by BlackBerry AppWorld   and can be downloaded directly from BlackBerry AppWorld through the following link: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/34452?lang=en

The MDC-KidTracker™ Is a software application that tracks the whereabouts of BlackBerry smartphones and provides up to the minute reporting of current location and recent location data points. Some unique reporting features are available including the following:

Distance Alert Notification

The Distance Alert Notification is sent to the subscriber's preferred email address as soon as the MDC-KidTracker™ detects that the device has gone beyond the parameters set from an originating tracking point. For example, a parent may select a two mile radius from a home address within which it is acceptable for a child to be located. Should the device that is being tracked - and presumably the child along with it - exceed the two mile  radius, a parent will receive a Distance Alert Notification indicating that the device has traveled beyond the pre-defined distance from the originating point. A parent can then immediately sign in to their account on the MDC website, either on their own computer or remotely, and see the most recent data points transmitted through the MDC-KidTracker™ GPS tracking application and determine where their child is currently and how he/she got there . This function allows for a user to generate reports based on any desired time frame; from the last five minutes to the last five hours, or even five days and beyond. As this information is available on demand, a parent can then take whatever steps are appropriate in communicating with, or locating, the child.

Speed Alert Notification

A Speed Alert Notification is also available and is triggered if the device exceeds the speed limit programmed for the device through the Member Section of the website. This function is important as it informs a parent that a child is perhaps in a vehicle when they should not be. Such an event could be benign in nature, however, it could also indicate a potentially dangerous situation that requires the parent to take immediate action. Tracking information provided by MDC-KidTracker™ could be instrumental in achieving a safe and desirable outcome.
