Emergency Contact

By Headlight Software, Inc.

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Have important emergency information available at a glance on your iPhone or iPod touch's wallpaper. Let an emergency responder find your ICE (In Case of Emergency) info quicker--even if your iPhone uses the security lock.

Quickly customize any photo to add your name, contacts, and medical information. Even add an identification photo. Then set the customized image as your iPhone's wallpaper.

The details you set are instantly viewable for anyone who finds your iPhone. No searching your address book, private emails, or other places to find important medical conditions or who to call--"Emergency Contact" is faster, and protects your privacy too.

If you use the security lock on your iPhone without "Emergency Contact", an emergency responder would not be able to unlock to find critical medical details or who to call! Even if you'd added special "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) tags to your contacts.

A bonus, the same contact details might just help you get your iPhone back if it is lost too :)

* Enter any information you need to display on your iPhone or iPod touch wallpaper.
* Include an identification photo to avoid any confusion.
* Adjust the transparency, from a faint watermark to still see your photo, to bright for the best readability.
* Use your own photo, or one of the built in wallpaper backgrounds.

What's New in Version 2.0

Perfect for my needs

I was recently diagnosed with epilepsy so I wanted my phone to automatically display (1) an emergency number (2) my seizure med and dosage and (3) that I could have a seizure and this app is perfect for just those purposes. Works great on my 4s and I can still keep a pic of my son in the background on my lock screen :) many thanks to the authors. Highly recommended.

Wonderful app:) very helpful!

This app is amazing! It's the only one I've found so far that can be accessed without having to unlock lock screen, which makes it helpful for E"m"s in case of an accident. The only suggestions, would be make more color of fonts ( so it will be more noticeable on pics ) and more room for allergies etc. other than that it's awesome!;)

Unusable- VERY BUGGY!

I tried repeatedly to get this app to work, deleting and re-downloading it three times - even rebooted my iPhone - but to no avail.
Entering more than a couple of characters of data (e.g., ID and contact), caused the app again and again to revert to the phone's home screen; the photo camera only used the front facing one, so no selfies possible; but no matter, whatever picture taken (or pulled from my own library), ended up as wallpaper, not ID photo.
I could go on, but merely want to offer enough to warn you off from wasting your time on this disaster.
