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 - god forbid!) you can issue an emergency call by a combination of presses on the power/sleep button (within 2 seconds to avoid false alarms!) OR with a Home Screen Widget (same number of presses for safety reasons).
✔ Current location (either GPS, Coarse or both) and predefined message will be sent to your predefined contacts as SMS and or Email.
✔ A number defined by you will also be dialed
✔ Home Screen Widget
✔ Use the SMS to post on Twitter and Facebook.
✔ 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. Add a password so that only you can change the settings of the App
✔ 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 - you can 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.
SOS trigger when you are in need of help.
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.
