I think this app deserves a chance! Truthfully, I downloaded the app before reading the reviews. When I did come around to reading the reviews, I was surprised that most of them are negative. I know it has had its issues. I also experienced the false alarms sent to my emergency contacts but they seemed to have resolved themselves after awhile. I have faith that this app can be improved. I've given my feedback to the developers and they are more than happy to make the suggested improvements.
It's a good app so far. My only issue is that I have alerts set for 3 minutes, and it's sending every minute draining my battery faster and making it difficult for my contacts to make phone calls, like calling the police. Also I can't find a way to change the frequency. The reason for the pin is so someone else can't shut it off
Confusing. Not free If I have no credit and I need help it doesn't seem to work. I tried sending help alerts but it keeps saying "sorry, that was a false alarm. I'm not in any type of trouble" .... that's craziness!
I don't undetstand why it needs to tell my emergency contact my whereabouts when I am not triggering it myself?! How irritating for my partner. I'm not a child being tracked?!
Good app overall. Needs a little work in terms of modifying your messages and maybe adding camera shots of front and back camera and voice recording. All in all good app
Waste of time After entering contact details I could not transfer to the step 2, keep pressing button Next and nothing happens. When I tried without entering contacts, I've been transfered to step 2. This is nonsense.
- We bring to you a brand new version of the app, with a completely revamped look and an optimized user experience!
- You complained about too many false alarms getting triggered, which was primarily a result of sensitive hardware in some devices versus others. We heard you! From this version, we have removed the ability to trigger an emergency alert by shaking your phone. You can now trigger an alert either from within the app or by pressing the power button on your device three times.
