Of course you never want to think about that time where your safety or even life may be in danger but being prepared can actually save your life. The yourHelp app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is designed so that if the unthinkable happens you can trigger the app in order to get you the help you need. This is the kind of app that any person should have on their mobile device and the hope is that you’ll never have to use it but if you do at least you’ve given yourself a handy and possibly life-saving tool.
A Little Advanced Thinking
The yourHelp app, found in the Medical and Utilities categories of the App Store, means you’ve thought ahead and taken the small amount of time necessary to program this app to possibly save your life one day. The way this app works is that if you are in an emergency situation where your safety/health is in jeopardy you just trigger the app and it will send an emergency message to the number you have programmed. That emergency number should likely be 911 and the message will send your GPS coordinates, your device status, the help message, and your profile. This app is being offered at 50 percent off right now, but only for a limited time.
This is a brand-new release so as of right now it doesn't have any updates. The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use. Despite the fact that this app is brand new it already has some user comments that are nothing but positive and point out just how helpful this option can be in an emergency.
Why Use the App
What's interesting and something many people may not know is that if you text 911 it is a different process on their end than if you call it. When you call 911 they will be able to get your approximate location immediately, as well as your phone number. If you text them from your wireless device they aren't able to get this information automatically so you need to be sure to include it. That's where this utility app really comes into play because it has been designed to include your GPS coordinates automatically and send that along with your message.
A few things worth noting are that the yourHelp app can be used by any age, even kids. The way it works is that you shake to send the message, making it incredibly simple. It also offers offline access.
