I got some great feedback via comments and emails regarding my ICE application. If you saw the ICE app video, you would’ve heard me discuss another health and safety application I was working on. Due to the feedback I received from the ICE app, I decided to take a different approach to the development of my other application. The application is called Panic Alert and the video shows a quick prototype of it working. The reason I released an early video is because I feel it would be interesting to get ideas and feedback at an early stage in development so that new suggestions can be incorporated from the beginning.
Unlike ICE, the application is designed to be used by the owner. When they feel unsafe, or are in danger, they can easily perform three key actions.
1) Quickly set up a call to emergency services
2) Quickly set up a call to a chosen contact
3) Quickly set up a text message containing a predefined message and GPS coordinates
These actions could prove vital in an emergency situation. Check out the video below and feel free to send in feedback.
