I *really* like this app! Before installing it and testing, I was concerned that it might not be able to notify my primary contact, who uses an iphone, but upon testing, I saw that the emergency contact person doesn't have to have an Android for the basic SMS and/or emergency voice calling features to work when sent from an Android phone -- probably just the "real time sessions" need both phones to have the app. If you're able to do an iphone app so my contact and me can to the real time sessions, I definitely upgrade to the paid version. ** One feature I would really like to see implemented is the possibility of having the app turn on the Location service if it isn't already on when a user needs to send an emergency message. That would allow the phone battery to last so much longer, rather than having to always have Location on. I don't know if that is something that an app can control without direct user manual input. Is that a possibility at all?? Anyway, great app, very flexible for the user, simple to set up options. Definitely five stars...

This is a good app. In fact one of the few that really work as it says on the tin. Setting up ID's was a bit messy and needs to be installed and open on both phones. Otherwise worth keeping. Not sure about the reviews. Some are identical under different names!

Hi Gerald, Thank you for the feedback and a positive review. In our recent update, we have improved the setup instructions to clarify the contact ID setup process. We are unsure why there are duplicate reviews. Whether some users have intentionally copied the reviews of other users or a Google Play bug. We will investigate the issue.

Installed the app and try to create the account but didn't get any verification email to verify. Tried several times and waited 1 day still didn't get any email to verify the accounts, also checked the spam folder but no verification email then it was useless so uninstalled it.
