Gallery Guardian is designed and developed by our developers that help you to protect your child against receiving and sending inappropriate images. In addition, parents can track sexually explicit images in real-time through push notifications. Have an app idea that solves real-life problems?
Client approached us because he wanted to create a tool to fight back against the most dangerous phenomenon of today’s modern world – ‘Sexting’.
Sexting is the exchange of sexually explicit images between two users (mostly teenagers).
Gallery Guardian is an app for parents to monitor text messages of their kids in order to keep a watchful eye on their smartphone activities.
The app is installed on parent’s device as well as on child’s device. To pair child with parent’s device, Parent needs to generate a login code, which is used in child’s app to pair them.
Once Parent and Child’s app is paired, The Gallery Guardian allows parents to track the inappropriate images in their child’s smartphone, monitors those received, and notifies parents in real-time by push notification every time they send or receive such images.
The sole purpose of developing Gallery Guardian is to protect teenagers from sharing and receiving inappropriate images, which is a serious problem in the modern world.
Today, Sexting is the most dangerous modern craze in teenagers that terrifies every parents in the world. Therefore, Client decided to build Gallery Guardian, a text monitoring app, as a simple and transparent solution.
The Gallery Guardian uses Visual Recognition Technology to detect sexually explicit images sent or received on a smartphone and notifies parents in real-time.
Most of the time, parents are last to know, and often thinks that their child would never engage in such Sexting activities until their child is exposed online. So, the main intention behind this text monitoring app was to lower the risk of sexting or being exposed online while securing a child’s privacy

How it works
After installation, Parents are asked to fill their details in the sign up form
After registration, Parents can add child’s details to track in real-time by adding new child option.
Once the parent fills child details, a login code is given. Parents have to enter this login code in their child’s smartphone by selecting user as a child after installation.
Once the parent successfully adds add in child’s device, the Parent is notified each time the app tracks any inappropriate image in child’s gallery, and also notifies if a child goes offline.
App Development Process
We’ve always enjoyed working with successful Entrepreneurs having innovative ideas for mobile app development. And when the client for Gallery Guardian approached us with his text monitoring app idea, we were really excited.
The application development process started from the basics. We designed several mock ups for Gallery Guardian and sent them over to client to get his approval. We made the changes required in the design part as per client’s recommendation, and passed it over to our design team to create wireframes.
Parallelly, we started frontend development on both, Android and iOS, platforms, and our backend development team studied client’s code carefully and enhanced it to deploy in the iOS and Android version.
Since we already had experience in creating complex dynamic logics for several features in our past projects, we did not really face any difficulty, except making this app run 24×7 in the background in users devices.
Now, most of the times, an app is removed from background process after 15 minutes of kept idle. So, in order to make this app run in background 24×7 in users devices, we conducted couple of brainstorming sessions, came up with an ideal solution, and published the app in just 6 months on both, Apple App Store and Google Play Store, including 24×7 background support.
Gallery Guardian is a one of a kind text monitoring app developed solely for parents to track their child’s smartphone activities and reducing the risk of Sexting in this digital age. Within just 3 months of its launch, Gallery Guardian has received quite a success.
App Development Challenges
24×7 Background Support
As mentioned earlier that most apps are removed from device’s background process after 15 minutes of kept idea. So, the biggest challenge we faced in this project was ensuring that the app runs 24×7 in the background process.
The challenge was to make sure that app does not get suspended, even after 15 minutes of kept ideal, and automatically gets activated, in case the app is being killed. Though, this wasn’t the hardest part…
The hardest part was to get this app approved in the Apple App Store with 24×7 background support. But, our iOS app developers made the necessary changes to meet the requirements of Apple App Store Approval Process and got this app published in the App Store.
Detecting Same Image Multiple Times
While this wasn’t the most challenging part of this article, but the logic was quite complex. However, our iPhone app development team created and applied number of logics, tested out every single scenario, and resolved the issue successfully by writing the right logic for the issue.
Supports iOS 9 and above.
Android Studio 2.3.3
Supports ICE CREAM SANDWICH (4.0.3) – Nougat (7.0.1)
Appreciation from Clients
I would like to thank the entire Space-O team for helping us with our photo editing app. We have been working with other developing teams before, and we were able to find Space-O. And all the other developers failed to deliver all great working apps for us. Space-O helped to design the app in a very user-friendly way. They helped us to navigate solutions for the app. And overall went above and beyond with our request.
This was the first app I’ve ever developed and they been extremely helpful every step of the way, answering questions, writing recommendations, and tips. If you’re looking for a high-quality app, definitely go with Space-O technologies.
When we started 2 years ago, the main struggle was to find the right developing team, because the problem was we were all quite demanding in terms of quality. And, this showed that we were able to develop some successful apps. But, this would not have been possible without Space-O.

I hired them for a BA assignment for a project. They did a fantastic job. Quite professional and also good at making the customer understand non technical aspects. Put their mind to think like the customer. A guy named Jaimin was assigned as the work lead and really appreciate his knowledge, understanding customer perspective on the assignment and come up with very valid suggestions. Recommended for mobile app development.
We searched online for app developers that had an extensive experience in mobile app development as well as a strong presence in the market. We chose Space-O specifically because of the up-close experience we had with another app they had developed and we wanted to achieve the same high level of standards, quality, and satisfaction. We were looking for brilliant experts and we found them.
Space-O Technologies showed genuine interest in the project. The efficient team delivered quality results at a cost-effective price. We wanted to develop a minimum viable product that would be ready for scalability. It was a great experience working with them. We are so happy that we had the chance to meet Space-O. We love their work. Their project management and structure were amazing. The team loved what they were doing. There was passion behind every single piece of work.
The app was successfully launched and fulfilled original expectations. The Space-O Technologies team was communicative and effective in completing the project. The app is available in the Google Play store, and we’re thrilled with the final product. They were a highly efficient team to work with. They were strong communicators—whenever I had an issue they were available. Additionally, they were timely in getting deliverables to us.
Eugene, Vlad, Jigar and their respective teams have been fantastic on all the various apps they have worked on and developed for us over the past 18 months. They are always proactive, responsive to questions and consistently provide top quality development and design work. The use of Skype, email and their own project management tool also makes it easy to keep track on how a project is progressing. I would highly recommend Space-O Technologies for any iOS development or design.
I can't say enough about how great of a partner Space-O has been to work with over the past year. They were always pushing the project forward and ensuring quality checks at every turn, even pieces of my app that I should have caught before sending to development. Will definitely be referring any clients of mine to Space-O and will have them first on my list of partners to work with.
