About this app

AirFlare turns your phone into a rescue locator, allowing you or your loved ones to be found quickly, whether it’s just meeting up or an emergency!

Stay connected with Location Sharing that’s easy to setup, finds the right device, and works reliably even in spotty internet service.

Be protected with the most effective rescue technology possible: the one you'll actually have with you the day you might need it! Our patented technology turns your phone into a powerful rescue system. It works without cellular service—although even better with it—without requiring user initiation, and actually preserves battery life up to a week. AirFlare also provides a suite of lifesaving tools and advice, like local emergency contacts and Text-to-911 status, and a camera-flash SOS strobe.

For the cost of a cup of coffee--retail price of just $4.99/year--AirFlare provides invaluable protection for anyone who enjoys the outdoors, from the casual hiker to the most serious adventurer.

Awesome app idea. Clear and concise instructions on set-up, very user friendly and simple (which is important in an emergency), and a neat option for anyone spending time in more remote/wilderness areas. Not everyone has the funds for a SPOT/PLB device, and that shouldn't be a gatekeeper to enjoying the outdoors safely. The self-test worked fine for me and allows you to see exactly how and to whom your alert will be sent. I hope more people learn of and choose to use this app.

The location sharing feature is very handy to have on the mountain, and seems accurate to within 10 feet or so. It's more than enough to find my friends on the slopes. Thankfully, I've not had the need to use any emergency features yet, but if they function similar to the friend finder, I'm sure they work like a dream.

Scammy in a way. There is virtually zero adoption. I think only 1 ski resort has the search tecnology to locate the phone with this app. Without that this is just an expensive way to send gps coordinates in a text. The company does not mention the low adoption on their website. They need to be honest about which resorts or agencies use this tech so that users don't get a false sense of security. Until they get more adoption there should not be a fee.

Hi Matt, thanks for your feedback. We had to start somewhere with our unique technology and lots of people found that valuable, but you'll also very soon see more resorts adopting our AirFlare. We'll work on better ways to communicate that, though! Finally, we're currently testing a free version of the app. I hope you'll endorse us again soon!
