An English father became an accidental wizard after an app that he had designed to send emergency messages to his son was downloaded by thousands of parents around the world.
The app, ReplyASAP, allows people to send emergency messages with an alarm, even when the phone of the receiver is in silent mode and has had more than 100,000 downloads.
Nick Herbert, a 46-year-old product manager from London, said he designed the app as part of a course and only intended it to be used between him and his son, 14-year-old Ben.
"His phone was constantly silent or was doing something else so I thought there was a way to be able to get an important message to him if I needed to," Herbert told the press. ..
