The idea is great but it doesn't work. I don't care about sweatcoin or tracking. I want someone to get a message if I crash. Issues: 1.Tracking usually doesn't work. The map shows movement but no record of km. Worked about 1 in 5 starts. 2.Battery use: 5-10% per hour! 3.False alert when I was home, no sound, just vibration so I didn't notice in time to cancel the countdown (30s: can't be changed), the app crashed at 0 + didn't send the alert. No point if no alert! 4.Needs mobile data to work?

This app is amazing and it is very efficent. I have tested it if the fall the detection would work and most times it did. It is also very good at detecting false alerts. But my major problem is when the screen is off. The notification doesnt help and the only way to contact someone is to open the phone which might not be possible. So i wish when a fall is detected even if the phone if off it will show a full screen pop up to help. Great app though!

The concept behind Busby is genius: Use your phone's built in hardware to act as an incident detection device. The closest thing I can think of is a marine MOB device, the Apple watch, or a fall detection tag. Except Busby is free! Even the premium option is cheaper by miles. The app gets regular updates and new features, which is great. Plus it works at slower speeds like walking or cycling. Busby is the sort of thing more developers should focus on.
