    "You and I'll be safe and sound"

    HERO is a useful geo-location application for Android that is especially made for those times when you need help, simply by streaming video, audio and gps to all your friends, family and people around you up to 5 miles away. The data can be seen even if your phone is broken.

    From the main menu, you can access to the Alert screen by pressing on the Hero button located on top. Click the center of the screen to send instant video and location to the crowd and Custom Alert to add a message.

    You can add your list of contacts -heroes- and see their notifications as well as their alert status (resolved, in distress). You can view the map to get the direction of the alert and help your friend and that also helps you see if there are any alerts going on nearby.

    Basically, this is a helpful tool for being protected and making sure everyone you know is safe. The usability makes it easy to use and the tutorial in the beginning successfully explains what this is really about and its main uses. Apptooth is the developer of HERO, its only app so far in the market and a good tool if you want to keep your family safe and sound.

    You have to pay to stream video, but apparently can see other people stream. Also, kept crashing.

    UP seems like it would be pretty decent, but it's difficult to assess if the app is crashing all the time.
