About this app

AirFlare turns your phone into a rescue beacon, allowing you or your loved ones to be located 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 cellular coverage.

Be protected with the most effective rescue technology possible: the one you have on you when you need it! Our patented technology turns your phone into a mountain rescue beacon. 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, AirFlare provides a higher level of protection for anyone who ventures into 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.

i think this is in Beta? i tried the product walk thru and i got a page that says "contextual advice" and a button that says close tour. i uave no idea what this does or why i should buy it with such a poor onboarding experience. hopefully it gets better with some work.

Hi Jenn, thanks for the feedback! We're sorry your first experience with AirFlare wasn't great. The app is out of Beta, but we're always working to improve it and would like to help. If you hit the Menu button in the upper left (three lines), then FAQ, does that answer your questions? If not, please send us with Feedback button on that same menu.
