Features at a glance:
✔ Set up a list of contacts (phone numbers or emails) and every time you are in need of assistance (being attacked, robbed, lost or having health problems) you can issue an emergency call by a combination of presses on the power/sleep button (fast presses within 2 seconds to avoid false alarms!) OR with a Home Screen or Lock Screen Widget (same number of fast presses for safety reasons).
✔ Current location (either GPS, Coarse or both) and predefined message will be sent to your selected contacts as SMS and or Email.
✔ A contact person set up by you will also be called
✔ Home Screen and Lock Screen Widget
✔ Use the sms contact feature to post on Twitter and Facebook when you are in trouble via their post from sms features.
✔ Set up a trusted list numbers and everybody in that list (or everybody knowing the SMS command if you choose to do so) can send SMS commands to the phone if they suspect that something wrong is happening to you, even if no emergency has been triggered.
✔ Receive one time location updates or start automatic locations predefined by the device holder in the App's settings
✔ Password protection, both for the app itself or for the SMS commands.
✔ Auto enabling GPS. The app will try to auto enable the GPS chip even if disabled in Android settings to get the best current position (works on almost any Android device, but might not work on some!)
✔ Stealth mode - Choose to have a notification icon in a case of emergency or disable it and run the emergency in stealth mode, so that potential abusers would not suspect anything.


Use case scenarios:
✔ Install the app on your device on the device of a family member (parents, spouse, kids, relatives etc.), boy/girlfriend, friend you care about and let them add you as a contact in a case of Emergency.
If they are in trouble, all they have to do is press the power button a few times and you will be notified of their emergency. They can use the app as a panic button.
✔ If you are being attacked, robbed, or just lost, having health problems and no way to call or text, just press the power button a few times and all of your contacts will know that you are in trouble.
✔ Your kids are running late from school and you are worried? No Problem, just send a location request to their phones and you will be notified of their position.
✔ You could also use the app to track your lost android or stolen android or find my phone.

Just what the doctor ordered As someone with a potential life threatening medical condition, and not wanting to be continually chained to my home and landline, the concept behind this app offered just what I was looking for. The help / FAQ's could use some work as initially they were quite confusing, not surprising as this is my first smartphone (Google Nexus 5 with LG QuickCover). New option to put the red button widget on the lock screen is a definite improvement.

Does not work on the Galaxy s4. One must power on and power off a number of times to trigger this application. This kind of function is not working on the newer galaxy s4

Unreliable Not reliable on my galaxy s3. Unbelievable! And I paid for this!? Sure they can make it work. But the number of presses in a short span of time is difficult for users especially in an emergency situation. If I can't make it work right now, how will this thing help me in an emergency crisis? I also think the instructions are flawed. On the plus side the developers are helpful but they refuse to improve the software for ease of use. The emergency button is not so discreet. Depending on your emergency situation, especially when your safety is at stake, you sometimes want to be discrete when pressing the emergency button. With the size of the screen of the galaxy s3 and the huge button in the home screen, you can't press the emergency buttons without anyone suspecting.
