A useful application for the following scenarios:
- Business continuity
- Urgent notifications from friends or family
- Disaster notifications - Earthquakes, flood alerts and security threats
The application listens out to specially formatted SMS messages - when triggered, the app can alert you one of three ways:
Green Alert - This alert simply displays a popup message from the sender.
Yellow Alert - This alert will vibrate until dismissed, allowing you to be quietly notified of an urgent matter.
Red Alert - This alert will alert you with a loud alarm and vibration until dismissed, even if the device is on silent with media volume turned down.
To trigger the rules, the sender or automated alert system needs to be aware of the text to add at the beginning of the SMS message:
**redalert**, **yellowalert**, or **greenalert**. Any text sent after the alert status will be displayed in the popup on the screen. See the screenshots for example.
The app is also intelligent - if you have a headset plugged in, it will use the current volume so you aren't deafened! Without headphones, the alert will play at full volume through the speaker, ensuring you won't miss an alert.
Please Note: Other apps that intercept SMS messages may affect the alert - please test on your device after installation to ensure it is working with your set up.
If you or a loved one ever walk through a dark alley, travel abroad or just need to alert someone of your whereabouts - this button will simplify explaining exactly where you are. Help can come faster and within GPS accuracy.
Emergency Button will only work if you're in a place with reception to at least send the SMS text message or email.
The widget can be added to your homescreen by home->menu button->add->Widgets->Emergency. The widget has 2 buttons and you have to press both within 5 seconds to make the app fire the distress signal. The double button is designed to minimize false positives.
None of your information is stored or saved by Andluck. This project is open source (BSD) and hosted on google code: http://code.google.com/p/emergencybutton/ so you can see exactly what's inside if you wish.
Disclaimer: this app is presented as is with no guarantee whatsoever. It won't work without reception or connectivity. You must make alternative communications arrangements to ensure that you can make emergency calls if needed. Please remember that Emergency Button by itself doesn't do emergency calls to any type of hospitals, law enforcement agencies, medical care unit or any type of emergency services.

We’ve all had them moments of panic, when your phone battery dies midway through an important conversation or a time when you’re only contactable on your mobile device. Are you worried that the recipient will believe that you are ignoring them? We set out to solve this problem as most people don’t even notice when their phone’s battery is running low and it will usually take them by surprise when their phone refuses to turn on.
Introducing Last Message, a customizable and smart solution to this problem.
With everybody now connected to the internet and always in contact, it is important for you to let your friends and family know when you may not be-able to be contacted so they can have peace of mind next time you don’t reply to a tweet, Facebook message, email or SMS.
Last Message runs in the background of your device and monitors your battery - you can set the app to notify someone through Twitter, Email, SMS or Facebook to warn them that you may not be in-contact once your phone battery has been depleted.
With Last Message, you can personalize your away message anyway you’d like and even choose at what percentage you’d like the app to send the message. So next time your battery becomes depleted, you can be confident that your contacts will know exactly why you are not reachable on your mobile. Last Message combines a simple and one-time setup with full customization, so you can have your personal away message sent to your chosen contacts.
As well as being simple, Last Message includes advanced features - use the Statistics page to learn additional information about the battery that your device houses, measure the battery temperature trend and more if needed.
Got your charger around? No problem! You can set a start and stop time, meaning that between your chosen hours, Last Message will not send the alerts. You can also configure the days you’d like the app to function on and configuring your accounts is just as simple.
Last Message is a tool that you’ll never want to live without, giving the peace of mind to you and your recipient.
Last Message requires Android 2.2 or higher, meaning that it will work on most modern devices although some older devices may not be supported.
MMA runs as a background service that watches for messages and alerts you at your desired interval. To save your battery, you can set it to flash the screen with dim light or disable itself when your battery is running low until you plug your charger in.
Note: This app may not work properly if you are using other apps that intercept messages and calls, such as Handcent or Visual Voicemail.
As of May 2012 this project is now free and open source. The project web site is at http://code.google.com/p/missed-message-alerts/. Many thanks to all those who purchased the paid version of the app.
