Aspire News is a free application which contains summaries of top stories in world, sports, and entertainment news, from the When Georgia Smiled: Robin McGraw Foundation (and powered by Yahoo!).

Additionally, if someone you know is in an abusive relationship—or if that someone is you—the Help Section of the application contains resources for victims of domestic violence.

This app does not serve as a replacement for emergency services—in any situation where you feel that you may be at risk, please dial 911 or your local emergency number.

Saw this app on Dr. Phil

Well actually they didn't show the app, but they did talk about the app's virtues with its creator. What was not mentioned all US States fall into different categories in terms of who must give permission to record a conversation.

In most states, only one person needs permission -- meaning that you the person recording the conversation is giving permission, and you're fine.

However in other states, everyone involved in either a phone call or conversation must give permission in order for the recording to be considered lawful. In these states, recording someone without their consent will *NOT* protect you nor will it prove you are the victim of domestic abuse. Instead what can happen is that you (the victim of abuse) is instead prosecuted criminally for illegal wiretapping. Additionally, the person or persons who you recorded without their permission can sue you civally for monetary damages.

It is for this last reason that I am giving this app an 1 star rating. I have nothing against the app or what it does but if you're going to go around promiting the app on television shows as something that can protect victims of domestic violence, you should be fully aware that there are states where instead of protecting victims that it will do the reverse.

Should have fixed before promoting app!

Everyone was does not send out the exact location. My location that was sent out was actually almost ten minutes away from where I was!!!! Not good!!! Why doesn't it display your own number and some weird random number??? If it weren't for my test signal I sent out and the reviews on here, I would have never known that part. Also, I tapped my screen three times like it says too and I did that several times and it took at least 5min to get the text. Needs a lot of work!!! I wouldn't depend on this for help. Just as easy to click on a contact and dial their number with one touch.


I love this concept but I'm having trouble. During testing it once sent my location the next time it had me somewhere else. And how does the recording work? I thought it was supposed to record everything in the room once you tap it??? And if it does record where do you go to access it??? It's a brilliant idea I just don't know everything about it and I'm not finding many answers. Also it would be great if the recorder would run in the background when the phone locked, no way to see it when you touch the phone. My hus is always checking to see if he's being recorded
