FBI launches child ID card app for iPhone

Federal Buereu of Investigation has recently launched an application for iPhone which may help finding a missing child. It’s a fairly simple app that stores child photo and basic data such height, weight and any relevant details which can be quickly transmitted to the authorities in case a child goes missing. According to the FBI statistics a person under age of 18 goes missing every 40 seconds. In case of missing people time is of the essence. The electronic children ID card can also be used in places that have their own security like shopping malls or amusement parks.
App publisher claims no data is collected until the owner decides to trasmit it. Support for other mobile phone platforms are expected soon. App can be downloaded for free from iTunes store.
