Be alerted if your teen is texting while driving

(WFLX) - If you want to know if your teenage driver is following the rules of the road, there are a number of apps that can help you.

An app, called "Canary", can be installed on your teen's iPhone or Android cellphone. It will send an alert if the teen sends a text, Tweet or uses Facebook while driving.

The "mSpy software app" provides across-the-board logging features that can remotely track all activity on the monitored phone.

Some apps even allow parents to block features or shut down a cell phone remotely.
