A revolutionary smartphone app that helps families immediately get in touch and protect their loved ones during an emergency, or from bullies or physical attacks, launched today and is available for free in all the major app stores online.
FeelSecure (http://www.wefeelsecure.com) is a simple download to any smartphone that allows anyone, from youngsters to elders, to immediately call for help and record the situation when an urgent need or emergency arises. FeelSecure is the only emergency app that immediately backs up the live pictures and GPS maps to a cloud server and where concerned parents can immediately locate the phone, whatever the reason, even if the sim-card is replaced.”
Panic Picture Button is a picture-taking, location sending app that is activated with one tap or push of a button. The app will immediately launch all the resources of the smartphone - the camera, the GPS, and audio. Flash-lit pictures are streamed every 5 seconds to a secure cloud server, GPS maps are sent to emergency contacts every 60 seconds, and a loud siren can be set to scream. Families have the entire event securely saved onto a cloud server with bank-level security.
But for parents, there is that heart-stopping moment when their child is missing or not where they should be. FeelSecure Panic Picture Button also allows the parent to immediately get the phones exact location. The parent can force an alarm or a message overlay over the entire screen of the phone.
According to FeelSecure director Wanita Burnett, “The number one reason parents give their children phones is so they can reach them. Or so their children can reach them if there is ever an emergency.
“In 2011, smartphones outsold PCs. We have phones to keep in touch and be in touch. These sophisticated tools are now constantly in our hands and pockets. I believe that they are both wonderful connectors for families as well as powerful protectors.
“The smartphone is at the heart of the modern family unit and lends itself naturally to a host of innovative applications that empower parents to keep their families safe and secure.”
