ICE Alert Application Update for WP7 (Mine!)

ICE ALERT CAN NOW BE DOWNLOADED FOR FREE. CHECK OUT THE NEW VIDEO AND DOWNLOAD HERE AT THE OFFICIAL SITE.

Information Update: ICE App currently in Marketplace is not mine

I was going to record another video for the latest version of my ICE application (updated to ICE Alert since it merges the ICE application with the Panic Alert application). However, it turns out that the the presentation I did at the Windows Phone 7 User Group was recorded and so I’ll show that :).

ICE Alert is an application for Windows Phone 7 which makes it easier for first respondents such as paramedics to get information about you. For example, if you’re involved in an accident, the paramedic can see who they should contact first, what conditions you suffer from, what medications you take, allergies etc… It also allows you to customise the Panic Alert button to  instantly set up a text message to send to a list of predefined friends with a predefined message (including automatic appendage of GPS coordinates), instantly set up a call with a certain contact/emergency services or allows you to record a message quickly that you would like to pass to a first respondent in order to save them crucial time figuring out what happened to you. It will be a free download for Windows Phone 7.

Check out the video of my presentation below, demonstrating the latest version of ICE Alert.

Panic Alert App for WP7 (Mine!)

Hey everyone,

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.

Hey everyone,

I’ve been posting videos I’ve received in the showcase area. I decided to create a video of an application I made called ICE (which stands for In case of Emergency). Should the owner of this app get into an accident, a paramedic could launch the ICE app and see details of the owner (e.g. ICE Contacts/Medications/Allergies/Conditions) very quickly and easily. This information could prove crucial in an emergency situation.  It’s still in development (waiting for an SDK update) and will be made available completely free of charge in Windows Marketplace when WP7 launches. Check out the video below and let me know what you think of it so far (comment on this post/YouTube, email me or message me on Twitter).
