STOPit, which was made available in January 2014, comes preloaded with tools to anonymously report harassment to school officials, help friends in need, access 24/7 helplines or alert local law enforcement of potentially dangerous situations. The app concept originated three years ago, after Todd Schobel, the company's founder and CEO, heard about the high-profile suicide of Amanda Todd, a 15-year-old Canadian who killed herself after years of being bullied.

More than 50,000 kids in 83 school districts in 13 states across the country use STOPit. Over the last year, it's been named as one of "5 Apps to Help Change the World" by CNN and made Scholastic's list of "6 Awesome Apps for Classroom Management."
