Stay safe A great little app for anyone who rides alone. Gives you an audible warning before it alerts your emergency contact. Just don't sit on your horse chatting or forget to turn it off after a ride.
Good app Used this today as a test like the warning however I think it would be better if it could inform more than 1 person at a time
Good concept lousy execution After 4 tries to download from google play store, none successful, and numerous emails and error reports to the developer with no response, I finally got a successful download off the web. The feature that is supposed to disable the sleep feature didn't work on my droid so the alarm kept going off. The map link in the email was cut off so buddy couldn't locate me. Would love it if not for these issues.
Caused an accident! Far too sensitive.. The alarm sounded while i was riding n spooked my horse n then stopped sounding!
Sarah I ride on my own too, this is a great idea. Even if in a group its not always easy to explain where you are, there aren't always signs to tell emergency services.
***Do not use*** I used this app for the first time yesterday. The alarm went off whilst I was walking the Horse on a hack on my own. The noise immediately spooked my Horse dumping me on the floor, luckily she did run off, but proceeded to munch on foliage nearby. The alarm was still going so i shook the phone, to no avail, the only way I could stop it and hopefully prevent a text from being sent and wasting the local air ambulance time, was by taking out the battery. This incident could have been a lot more serious and safeguards need to be implemented, in my case the motion detection obviously didn't work, even though it appeared to do so when I tested it. I suggest that this app is pulled before anyone is injured or killed.
