Joseph Feigelson and his neighbour Reinhard have designed an app with the aim to keep themselves and their loved ones safe by having a quick response in an emergency. The App is called iProtectYou.
With only one touch on the screen of your Smartphone, the app takes a flash picture of the would be criminal and instantly sends the picture together with your co-ordinates to the person designated as your responders.
The respondents can instantly have a map that could lead police your location.
Listen to the full conversation on the John Maytham Show:
After the picture has been taken there is a loud voice that says your picture has been taken. At that point in time the assailant would have a choice to either walk away to commit further aggravation.— Joseph Feigelson, iProtectYou creator
According to Feigelson, there is a paid version which allows the user to have unlimited amount of responders and a free version only allows one responder.
The App is available from all the App stores for both Android and Apple products and also at www.iprotectyou.org
