Bugle is a free notification service for active people that lets your emergency contacts know if you don't check in when you expected to.
Before going somewhere, enter your activity details, select your emergency contacts, and select a check-in time. As long as you return safely and check in by the time you selected, nothing happens. But if you don't check in on time, your emergency contacts are notified automatically by e-mail and SMS that you may need help.
Bugle was built with input from Search and Rescue professionals, outdoor instructors, guides, and countless participants. It provides a fully private safety net that you define. Equipped with your activity information, the people who know you best will know when and where to look for you.
More fun. Less worry.™

Whether you're going for a run around the neighborhood, a hike in the mountains, or into town to complete a Craigslist transaction, Bugle can make you safer when you're out and about. It will make sure someone knows when and where to look for you should something ever go wrong.

Perfect for its purpose
Nice, concise little app. Does everything it says it does. Could freak out people worried about privacy, but pick and choose what info you want to include. The only other similar product I've found is a web app called Hiker Alert, which is $5. Quick way to give an itinerary for a day hike or weekender just in case. One thing I noticed which is nifty: if you choose to send your itinerary, it alerts your contact when you check in; if you don't send your itinerary, it only messages your contact once your overdue. Nice way to have a backup without overly worrying people.
This is the perfect app for people who take solo trips into the wilderness. Includes all your trip info so people know where you are in case you are overdue. A necessary app for adventurers.
Good for solo running
Good for friends and family to know when I've gone for a solo run and come home safely.
