Keeping in mind the womens'/citizens' security while travelling, DIMTS (Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System Ltd.) has come up with the TellTail mobile app.
TellTail is a security application with following features.
1) User chooses to intimate his near and dear ones about her/his location on basis of
a. GPS installed in Auto, Cluster bus or other public service vehicle running in Delhi. (‘Track by Vehicle’ button)
b. GPS on user’s phone, and send the coordinates for reference. (‘Track Me’ button) anywhere in the world.
2) User can send SOS message to her/his near and dear ones in 3 ways
a. Open the app and click on green panic button.
b. Click the power button 3 times to trigger the panic alarm (with setting ON)
c. Shake the phone with a bit of jerk 3 times to trigger the panic alarm.(with setting ON)
3) If your near and dear ones have TellTail installed, this will
a. Ring an alarm (even if phone is on silent mode) when the panic SMS from telltail is received.
b. In case the GPS of the phone is not ON of the person in panic, still it will send the cellular code to give the tentative location of the person.
c. In case data service is not ON, but GPS is ON, it will send the SMS with Lat/longs of the person and when other person receives it, it will be reverse geocoded (if data service is ON on receiver’s phone).
Your friends do not need to run telltail in background still the alarm will be triggered easily as well as you can be intimated on receiving any such SMS. Trouble (medical emergency/accident/panic situation) does not inform before coming.
Tell your friends also to download this app, as it may help each other in time of need. Let it prove that “Friend in need is friend indeed.”
Citizens can now feel safe while travelling alone or at odd times by using TellTail security app and get instant help from their family and friends in situations of emergency.
Now you can use worldwide phone numbers and use this app in any country.
