This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Developed by professional firefighters, the ManDown App is a personal safety app that can save lives.
The ManDown App sends immediate alerts in case of an emergency or injury. Enter the contact information for your family, friends and colleagues – if you have an emergency, they’ll get notified via text, phone or e-mail.
Once the Mandown app is activated, it continuously monitors the phone’s movement. The default setting is that if the phone is motionless for 30 seconds, then a pre-Alarm warning will start. If the phone is not moved within another 30 seconds, then the Full Alarm mode is activated. In the Full Alarm mode the phone sends out a local, audible alarm. The phone will also send out a text, email and phone call to selected recipients. This message will also contain the gps location of the person in distress.
The motionless timer can be set, in hourly increments, for up to 24 hours. This feature enables the ManDown app to be used as a Safety Net device. Possible uses for this unique feature are:
•Lone worker. Say a worker is operating alone for two hours. The worker sets the timer for two hours and places the phone. If the worker fails to move the phone in two hours, then the Alarm will sound and the alerts will be sent. This feature can be set for any period of a shift that a worker might be alone, such as a night watchman
•Elderly. For an elderly person living alone, the Mandown app turns their phone into a Check-in device. If the user has an accident and can’t move or is unconscious, then the alarm will automatically activate.
•Students, Children. The ManDown app is an excellent way for parents to have their children ‘Check-in’ without feeling compelled to make a phone call.
•Nanny’s, baby-sitters. Set the Mandown app to make sure that if something happens to your Nanny or Baby-sitter, you will be notified.
The ManDown App includes the following features:
•Emergency Alerts: When users download the ManDown App, they can add an unlimited number of names and contact details for people that they want to receive alerts in case of emergency.
•Adjustable Timer. Users can personalize the timer for any particular situation.
•SOS Button: ManDown App also gives users the option to proactively press the “SOS” button to send an immediate alert, unrelated to lack of mobility. This is a great tool for personal safety or medical alerts, as it immediately sends an “SOS” alert to notify others of the user’s location and convey the need for help.
•Automatic Personal Safety GPS Tracker: When the emergency alert is issued ManDown will communicate the user’s name and GPS location of the user’s phone.
Firefighters, police, first responders, military personnel, postal workers and anyone who works alone in potentially hazardous situations.
The ManDown App is:
•Easy to Use: There are two ways to call for help – an automatic motion-sensing alert tool, or a proactive “SOS Button.”
•Inexpensive: Only $1.99 to download. Get additional credits as needed via in-app purchase.
•Trusted by firefighters: Get the personal safety app developed by real-life emergency responders.
Protect your loved ones. Protect yourself. Get the peace of mind of knowing that the ManDown App has you covered.
Disclaimer :- Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Needs work but a good safety tool
Purchased this app because a lot of what I do is by myself and it can be hazardous at times. When you enter a contact number using contacts the app crashes. I found you need to manually enter the number to get through it. As stated in other reviews you get a warning message about entering the correct number even when you have. Cool thing about this app is that it really does work. Any movement resets the timer and alerts you. If you do not acknowledge the alert it will reach out to your emergency contact. Even gives a GPS location of where the person is. Well worth the piece of mind for $2.99.
Does exactly what it says. Great peace of mind
Bottom line: important safety told I'll use regularly. Very good value.
I'm often out in the country alone. This app does precisely what it says it does. I have it set up to alert several people - both by phone and email. When I tested it by having it send an alert to my spouse, she promptly got both an email and a phone call, with my name and location. The countdown timer resets when I move, just as it should.
I appreciate having the phone call option - a significant improvement over free apps that only text or send emails. Makes it more likely to get help rapidly.
For whatever reason, when I tested it, it made phone calls and sent emails, but didn't send texts.
Fine tuning that can happen in future versions: >built in format checking for the phone numbers; >confirmation screen that phone calls have been made and emails sent; >option of standard alert message or custom alert message
Expected a little more for $2.99. The ‘credit’ thing is not very clear, neither is how it wants you to enter the phone number. It gives you warning each time you save a phone number regardless of how you enter it, so not sure if I entered it correctly or not. It also doesn’t give you an option to test it, so I have no idea if the information is entered correctly. It also doesn’t have an option to have you customized the message (if a message is sent, who knows? It doesn’t state that).
