Megafone - Alert-based group messaging and location sharing
By RedDash LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Megafone lets you send a group alert, start a group message or share group locations with just a single tap, without typing.
We integrate automatic group location sharing, which provides background updates of all group members cross-platform with minimal battery drain.
Our alert, group and location features are more productive, private and personal than group messaging, location sharing or social network apps.
--- "Its group design has never been easier or more efficient."
--- "Its alert paradigm is a game-changer in so many types of situations."
--- "Indispensable app for getting things done in groups of two or twenty."
--- "Automatic integration of real-time group locations in the background is fantastic."
-----Easy and Fun to Use-----
Step 1: Simply create a group based on a description of its members or the name of any situation or the first line in a text message. Do it in advance or make up a group on-the-fly.
Step 2: With one tap, send an alert to that group, which notifies them of your situation, opens a private messaging session and shows everyone’s location on a single map.
Step 3: When the situation has ended or task has been solved, tap once to notify the group, which closes the messaging session and stops location tracking.
NOTIFY. MESSAGE. LOCATE. SOLVE.
***** Get real-time cross-platform group locations "without the stalking"
***** More battery-efficient location tracking with our proprietary location logic that delivers accurate location updates to those that need it.
***** Our Alerts make the difference?
Use Megafone for fun with your friends and family. Use it for private messaging and location sharing when making plans, on your way to meet, and more. Re-use your groups over and over again.
This is especially valuable for kids, college students or anyone living or working in an unsafe area. Create a "Follow Me" group or a "Where are you?" group. Create a "Check-In, I'm OK" group or "Come Get Me" or "Call Me to Interrupt" or "Safety Alert, Help!"
Using Megafone, a single, silent tap might be lifesaving when a situation prevents you from calling or texting.
***Kids in School***
You’re probably involved in many groups that depend on each other for help when things go wrong.
Make a "School Carpool" group for each of your carpools to ask others to fill in when you're stuck in traffic.
Create a "Sports Team" group for each of your kids to organize an event or to track everyone's location on the way to a game.
Megafone has endless uses for workplaces, to notify, share group messages or to track locations of employees - without the need to share private mobile numbers between the workers.
Great for hospitals, In retail stores or restaurants, create groups for different jobs, like "Cashier Needed" or "Cook Needed" which can then be used with just one tap to ask others to fill in for a sick or absent worker, saving managers lots of time. Use these groups over and over.
We know it’s not fun to prepare for emergency situations you are unlikely to encounter. But unexpected crises can be so stressful that you can't remember everyone to notify and time is often limited.
When an emergency happens, just one tap connects you with that group to notify, share messages and locations and get you help. Common group examples are "Medical Emergency," "Roadside Assistance," "Natural Disaster," " School Emergency," 'Neighborhood Watch," or "Campus Incident."
Megafone is free to download and use.
