Pukar - A Personal Safety App


Pukar – a personal safety app, that instantly connects you to your loved ones and the local police in case of an emergency. Once installed, a user in an emergency situation like – eve teasing, stalking, unwanted sexual advances, kidnapping, theft, fire, road accidents etc. presses SOS button on this personal safety app, sending out SOS alert messages with his/her GPS location to local police (in select cities) and their pre-chosen emergency contacts at regular intervals. This instantly displays the emergency alert at the police control room on a city map. Currently, Kota, Alwar, Udaipur & Nainital police have partnered with this personal safety app to receive emergency alerts and immediately execute rescue operation via nearest police station and police vans.

Pukar has other brilliant features too, once SOS is pressed:
- Emergency SMS sent to 5 contacts
- Phone becomes silent
- Display brightness is reduced
- Phone becomes a GPS tracking device
- Starts notification on the users phone that the App is live

Does it charge for SMS every time. App is good and simple. But internet messaging should be introduced to avoid low balance situations with the user. Coz u cannot send sms while with a low balance. .. Please Improve.
