iOS iPhone Utilities
This is the MUST HAVE iPhone app that you hope you never use!
“HELP LINK” has a new design, but the same great functions. PLUS, we have added life saving sections on what to do in certain emergency situations.
Special features of this app:
Icon vibrates the phone when you touch it to open the app. This is designed so you can find and open the app without looking at the screen, whether in your pocket, purse, or something is preventing you from seeing your phone.
On the home page, triple tapping the top half of the screen calls 911, or whatever the emergency number is of the country in which you are located. (Purpose of the triple tap is to prevent accidental emergency calls from happening.) The app defaults to 911, but you can change the default in the settings screen to your country’s emergency number.
On bottom left of screen, tapping the green area takes you to the stored numbers for your personal emergency contacts. (Family members, physicians, etc.) The person can be called or a text message sent by simply tapping on the person's name.
On the bottom right side of the screen, swiping your finger across the blue area causes the phone to emit a siren like sound to attract attention. This action can also be done without looking at your phone, and the siren can be turned off with a simple “tap” on the blue area of the phone.
The also app offers advice for preparing for, or handling, many different emergency scenarios that may happen in everyday life.
Get this app today for yourself and your family members, and breathe easier that you and your family have another great tool to help them in an emergency.
