    I like the one push button a lot, but the message and the location information gets broken up in two messages. I would love to see you implement a button on the lock screen as well. It would really cut down on button pushes.

    Worked fine on this phone. Didn't try the record function as I prefer to call. Useful.

    Ideal for taxi drivers

    Excellent
    Tested in a DroidX: works perfectly. Simple to setup and intuitive. Developer responds to questions immediately. This application is effective and better than others tried by me.

    Don't like the settings button on the widget--make the panic button larger instead. Also should require a double-tap or confirmation before sending.
