BuddyGuard - Emergency Group SMS

Buddy Guard provides a range of features to keep you connected and safe.  These include:

  • A group text application allows you to quickly SMS text family, friends and co-workers to alert them to an emergency and to help them find you should you become stuck or incapacitated. 
  • Instant Protection gives you the ability to real-time upload the content being captured by your phone. In other words, the audio or images you are collecting with your phone at the scene are simultaneously being backed up at another location. This way – if the phone is lost, damaged, or destroyed – the evidence is already securely stored off-site for you to access when you need it.

Price: FREE

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.

Lifesaver --- by Duke M

Great app. Very customizable, nice UI, very handy and has the potential to literally save your life. By far one of the most practical apps for the iPhone.
