I agree with this, but I also see David's point below. I think in this case, keeping the service available to kids with very basic phones is no question, but I think adding services for for those who have video capabilities can go a long way in reprimanding bullies, providing visual insight to educators about how to prevent such incidents, and allows a bullied student to feel empowered.

Good point, although I know they wanted to make it something that would be available even to kids with access to only very basic phones -- including those that don't support apps or have cameras.

Texting? Too hands on. How about an app that records sound/picture/video when the bullied kid activates it. Evidence is stored and sent to school administrators for instant response, possibly, or evidence later.
