Dial for help in an emergency with one touch!
Imagine you or your loved one needs help, and need it quickly. With one touch, a user configurable telephone number, such as 911, can be called.
To protect from accidental calling, HelpMe! can be configured to wait a user defined number of seconds before initiating the call, allowing you to cancel the request.
A simple application, and one that you hope you never need. But if you should, it's the fastest way to put you in contact with a first responder.
This app was featured on Atlanta's ABC TV station last weekend. I installed it on my phone and the next day I unknowingly hit the button and did not know it until I heard a woman asking what the problem was. I explained my mistake. She asked for my info I thought for their records. We live in a rural area 70 miles south of Atlanta. In less than ten minutes neighbors across the road called ask what was wrong as the police had been shining a light all over our property. At the same time an officer knocked on our door to talk to us. I thought it was wonderful the Help Me dispatcher did not just take my word for it and actually sent help! Now if I can just figure out where I can put the icon to have it ready but out of the way too!
Nice app, thank you
I wish the reviewer below who gave this app a "nothing" review read the directions before hitting send. I liked this app for it's simplicity. You can change the ergency number and put in a delay time before calling. One downside for me personally. After tapping the icon, one must also tap "call". If you don't tap "call," no emergency call is placed. This is a downside because in an actual emergency, your state of mind may not allow you to remember to hang on and tap that second button. App is nice, I see why the second tap is needed for some, just wish I had the option to "call without delays.". Nice app.
A must for iPhone users
This app is one of those things "that gives you peace of mind to have, but hope you'll never have to use it." I've had to dial 911 on my iPhone and it's a real detrement to have to go into the phone menu, to the keypad, and dial it. Especially if you are panicked, and your nerves are interfering with your brain/motor function. The timer feature (that enables you to cancel the call in case you accidentally press it) is one of the features that helped me to chose this app over others.
