Sometimes we find ourselves in places where we don’t feel completely safe such as an unlit park or a locality with a bad reputation. Most of the time nothing bad happens but wouldn’t it be nice to know that your iPhone/iPod touch provides you with that extra bit of protection.
Before going into a potentially unsafe area, switch on ShakeAlert. Should you feel threatened by anyone, simply shake your iPhone and a screeching siren will sound. The screen will flash and an SMS/TEXT (if enabled) with a help request and your GPS location will be sent to a person of your choice.
Visit the ShakeAlert website.
ShakeAlert is available for download from the App Store now!
