Get these awesome apps!
Have you heard of the news about the pilot landing safely thanks to his iPad app? Raymond Cody was flying a single-engine plane across western Colorado to Grand Junction Regional Airport when the instrument panel including the navigation equipment malfunctioned. He called Transportation Security Administration master coordination center officer Gene Manzanares. Using an iPad app he was able to track his flight path and relay his position to Manzanares who coordinated his landing to the airport’s tower control. Thus, he was able to land safely. There really is an App for everything. Here’s a list of applications that might make a life saving difference if you didn’t download it:
Close Call free
Say you’re in a situation where you lost consciousness in an accident, and the EMT needs to know whether you’re allergic to certain medicines and such or they need to notify someone about the accident. And unfortunately your phone is locked; they won’t be able to open your contacts. Close Call let’s you create a custom wallpaper image with your emergency phone number and up to 35 characters of text, so you can note important details like your name, allergies and medication you’re in.
This app helps you with decision making and health improvement by providing 24/7 mobile-optimized health information and decision-support tools that includes WebMD’s Symptom Checker, Drugs and Treatments, First Aid Topics and Local Health Listing.
Emergency Panic Button $1.35
Must be pre-installed on all Android devices, but can be a really big help if an emergency ever happens. This sends a short notification to your friends through email or SMS and calling a number. This also features a list of contacts, your current location, able to post the SMS on Twitter or Facebook and Password protection.
Pet First Aid: for your Dog, Cat, Puppy, or Kitten
It’s frustrating when our pets need medical help and it’s the middle of the night with no 24 hour vet nearby. Pet First Aid is loaded with detailed videos and step-by-step illustrations for your pets, this includes restraint, muzzling, CPR, bandaging and many more. This also lets you save vital medical information for your pets, their vaccinations, identifications, veterinarian contact info, medications, allergies and conditions, and other notes for reference.
This app features a Walk-With-Me Service and Silent Alarm. Walk-With-Me Service connects you to a live Security Advisor from their own call center trained accordingly for safety procedures. If requested, or if your security advisor senses you are in danger, your advisor will call 911 and send immediate information. But if you need help without calling attention to yourself, Silent Alarm can be activated by sliding the red slider button to have StreetSafe call 911. They will deliver your location, and other vital information like your age, physical description and photo, so that local authorities will be able to find and help you as soon as possible.
