Please allow video and voice from all cameras to record and send out footage.
Got for kids. Had to delete, it kept crashing.
I was really excited when I heard about this app but extremely disappointed after downloading it. The GPS does not work..... Both times I tested the app, my location was shown at 6.2 and 8.5 kms away from where I actually was at the time!! That is a very poor excuse for a gps especially when technology is so great at the moment! It would be a shame to find out that someone in trouble relied on this app and in the end it was no assistance to them and something awful happened as a result.
I completely agree with other peoples comments regarding the alarm.... That has not been well thought out! Why would you put a loud alarm on an app which is supposed to be a way of secretly contacting people if you are in trouble and need help! If you are in a situation where you would need to use this app, u would not have time to think about turning the sound down on your phone!
This app is a great idea but some thought needs to go into it! And some updates need to be done before I would ever consider relying on it!
