The Emergency Panic Button is an app that must be pre-installed on all Android devices!
Improve your own safety by installing our emergency alert button and let everybody know you are in trouble by letting the app send a short alert notification to your friends or family via email or SMS/text message and calling a number with a simple push of the power or soft widget button.

If you care for the safety of your family members, loved ones, let them know about this App. Are you a lone worker or working somewhere outdoors? You also need this App!

Make sure to watch the embedded youtube video for proper way of invoking the emergency.
Here is a short user review explaining some of the main features:

Features at a glance:
✔ Android wear support (one button click required) - the only Emergency app with Wear support!
✔ 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, network 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.
If you have questions, suggestions please email us from within the app or to the email below.

    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

    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

    Tried it out for my kid and it would send alerts for no reason. I thought my kid wasn't being honest and tried it on my phone and it had the same issue sent out emergency alerts with out it being activated

    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

    Had application on HTC and it worked great; however, power button on my S3 will not start an emergency, which is most likely user error. The developer has contacted me and is helping me to make sure I know what I am doing. This is a great and I hope I don't have to use it in an emergency.
