A 12-year-old Nigerian girl have developed a location app for children.

The app, called My Location, was developed by Tomisin Ogunnubi, a student of Vivian Fowler Memorial College for Girls, after she discovered the problem in her community.

Tomisin finished up the development of her Android mobile tracking app just a few weeks ago.

She developed her app under the guidence of an Information and Communications Technology partnership, between her school and New Horizons Computer Learning Center.

How it works

The “current location”setting on the app enables the child to see exactly where they are, as well as highlighting the neighboring streets around them.

The other main functionality of the app will allow the child to save a location such as their house or school and it will direct them to their desired location.

The My Locator App also features a button, which when pressed will alert the Lagos State Emergency Services. The app will call the services as well as show the child’s location so that they can be helped.

The app is available for free download in Lagos, Nigeria.
