React Mobile Personal Safety App from Robb on Vimeo.
Do you go on hikes or long walks alone? Do you have to walk through dark parking lots alone after work at night? Have you ever been in a situation where you felt fear, and wanted to be able to safely alert someone?
There is a new app that can help you with that! I recently learned about React Mobile, a new app for iPhone and Android to enhance your family’s safety – and it’s totally free!
Let’s say I go for a hike one day, but I want to make sure that my family knows where I’m at (anything can happen in the mountains). I can use the Follow Me feature, which will allow my husband or anyone else I designate to track my location in real-time.
You can also use this feature to track your kids! If you’re at work and your child walks home from school, you can have them enable the feature when they leave school. Then they can click the I’m Safe button when they get home so you can feel confident knowing they made it home safely.
If I’m away from home at night and I sense danger, now I have a way to let people know. I can send out a panic alert along with my GPS location to my emergency contacts via text message and email by just pressing the SOS Shield within the React Mobile app. I can even blast the alert to Facebook and Twitter if necessary! After you press the SOS Shield, your phone will prompt you to dial 911 for help.
I feel much safer knowing that I have this app on my phone. If you are ever in a situation where your safety could be at risk, I recommend downloading React Mobile. It’s free!
