Send SOS to your family and friends in case of an emergency and find the nearest hospitals
iSOS is an Android application that allows you to send a SOS to a relative, friend or emergency contact just by tapping on the screen and some other features.
The app can call a contact, send a sms or mail, indicating the position and even start a sound alert in case of danger of some type. In Emergency numbers there's a list of useful numbers such as emergency, fire fighters, law enforcement, rape hotline, child missing and many others. There's also a Gestures section which contains information about what you should do in case of an emergency and the possibility of saving a health file. In addition, you can find a hospital, a dentist and a pharmacy. All this can be change in settings, where you can write the text messages and select the contacts you would send it to and call.
This is an extremely useful application for those with a delicate health and for all kind of emergency situations. Some of the features don't work depending on the location but in general it's a really helpful and complete application that everyone should download just in case. Its usability is excellent and the app works well and quickly, given its nature. Xavier BELLENGER is the developer of iSOS, his first application and one that's worth it.

Useless for France: the emergency numbers cannot be changed. Also, some of the instructions of what to do in an emergency are in English, some in French. There seems to be no way of changing this.
Changes necessary; doesn't seem to allow editing of emergency numbers... indicates 999 by default, plus UK freephones for other services...aids hotline, suicide hotline etc... should allow editing for other countries of residence. Otherwise a good app...
