Alert My Friends

Alert My Friends


Have you ever been in a situation where you sense that you are in trouble and you want to make someone else aware of where you are and alert them about any imminent threat?

Walking down a road and someone following you?

Too late in the night and going through a scary neighborhood?

Only one in a public transport with six other drunk people?

This is an application that you and your near and dear ones must have on their phones just like pepper spray. It alerts your friends in an emergency situation by sending them a SMS with your exact google maps location and inferred address at the push of a single giant button or a shake of the phone.

Not only can it help you feel comfortable in the above situations but also save a life in a real emergency situation like a superstorm, burglary, kidnapping, shootout or rape.

Your friends/family can be there to help you or alert the police with your location. They don't even need to install this app or have any special capability on their phones.

Instructions

- When you first launch the app, go to the "Add Friends" screen and select the friends you may want to alert from the phone's address book along with the phone number that you would like the SMS to be sent on
- In an emergency situation, press the big blue button or shake your phone(enable in settings)
The SMS gets sent immediately to your selected contacts
- You can enable "Siren on alert" to play a siren sound when you push the button to potentially intimidate your attacker and make him/her aware that you have called for help

Features

- Built to be extremely simple and reliable
- Realtime location detection
- Reverse geocoded address lookup
- Supports all phones/tablets and all screen sizes
