Bully Block provides many useful features to prevent cyberbullying out of the box:

  1. Bully Capture
    Bully Capture utilizes a stealth recorder to captures bullies within the act. When a bully approaches, the user pushes a button on the app and the cell phone will go into stealth mode and secretly record the bully. After the recording, the user can forward the audio as an email attachment or text message to the appropriate authorities. Additionally, Audio can be downloaded to the bully file to authenticate the bully’s voice for legal evidence.
  2. Bully Blacklist
    Bully Block has a unique blacklist feature that allows users to block all sms or mms messages from bullies. When the bully calls after being blacklisted, her or she will either hear a busy signal or pre-recorded message. All phone calls and text message from blocked list are automatically routed to the bully file thereby preventing any communication with the bully and storing numbers as evidence.
  3. Bully File
    Bully File captures all texts, pictures, and videos that the user copies to the file. The cyberbully incidents are logged on the user’s SD card to be used as evidence for parents, school administrators, HR departments, and law enforcement. The evidence collected in the bully file will provide enough info for law enforcement to charge bullies with crimes.
  4. Instant Reporting
    Bully Block allows the user to forward inappropriate texts, pics, or videos via text messaging or email. Teens can forward information to their parents or school officials in real time. Employees can forward information to their HR department.

Bully Block will be very useful in preventing cyberbullying and will also be quite cheap ($0.99 on the Android Market).
