You're lost in the middle of nowhere. You’re trapped in an earthquake, hurricane or other emergency situation. How do you find your way out? How do you get help?
This simple application, when activated, sends out a distress beacon with your current location to rescuers.
Why not use the built in Google Maps? Two reasons. Google Maps do not allow you to email your latitude and longitude. And although you may be able to send a signal from urban locations, Google Maps may be of little help in rural settings.
Emergency Distress Beacon is a simple peace-of-mind application that can be a life-saver.

Needs a couple of features
If it's really an emergency, and say your glasses have gotten lost, you're going to find it hard to type in the email address to send the emergency notice to. It would be so much easier if you could preload an emergency email address or, preferably, a short mailing list of email addresses (e.g., family members, close friends, at least one of whom would be likely to read the email in the near future and not ignore it as spam) for those of us who won't know the location and email address of the police station nearest to where we expect to have an emergency. Also, could have a customizable default message of some sort. Add a big red button for emergency send and have it repeat at preselected intervals and voila, you have a ***** app. And maybe the option of automatically routing the message to the nearest rescue number.
Great idea, but not thought through very well.
This app. NEEDS to have an option where you pre-fill out who you want the emails to go to. So when you hit the “email location” button it automatically sends it to the people you want. Right now the app takes your location and puts it in an email for you and waits for you to fill in who you want the email to go to. You then have to push send for it to go out. I was under the impression that this app was more like a panic button, one hit and everyone gets notified.
Simple, free app that does as advertised
This is a one-hit wonder, but it does indeed e-mail one's GPS coordinates, even on a 2G iPhone like mine. Obviously this is not likely to be useful in major emergencies, unless the person you're emailing checks e-mail frequently enough and can get the coordinates to the appropriate authorities. But the app itself does what it is supposed to, which is good.
