Just what I needed. Wanted something for when I am out with my dogs alone, and feel nervous of someone near or following me. Love that u activate it by the power button aswell. So can do it discreetly. Haven't needed it yet thankfully but will test it out later to be sure it all works. But it looks great and seems to do what it should do.
Still needs improvement Great concept. I tested to see how it would work and so those on my notifications would know what they were receiving, it crashed several times trying to turn it off. I'm also noticing a significant battery drain since install, it's no use if it's bleeding my battery and the phone is near dead when I really need it
Xperia Z The on/off button has other 3 purposes, so adding a 4th panic button function is no good.. I may suggest under the air a proposition, may be it will solve the crucial problem.
Hope this works I got attacked the other day and I am scared to leave the house so I am hoping this will help and make me feel better about leaving the house. Will keep my phone close by until I have to confidence to not have to use it
Well done Works great for me. It's well thought out and comprehensive. My guess is that some of the bad ratings came from an earlier version. I tried a number of similar apps and this one was best.
Works well for me! What would be great, is to add an option to uninstall (or clean data of) certain apps upon panic! A panic button user, would really prefer not to get caught with anti-gov related apps/data on their device. Thanks!
Public Beta Release 1.4.0 (build 137).
With this release we have tried to address one of the major pain points of Panic Button so far which was unwanted triggers.
IMPORTANT: Note that <b>the trigger mechanism has changed!</b> You now need to <b>confirm with one extra power button press</b> after the first repeated presses.
