This is a sponsored campaign with React Mobile. All opinions are my own.
My motto is: better safe than sorry. And with React Mobile’s new SOS Alert App, I can have the piece of mind of being prepared if there were ever a safety concern.
“React turns your iPhone into a powerful security device and also allows users to report incidents and criminal activity. With the push of a button, a silent SOS with the user’s GPS location is sent to select emergency contacts via email, text message and optionally an alert can be posted to Twitter/Facebook – without an onlooker or an attacker knowing.”
Here’s some key features to the app:
– SOS Alerts email
– SOS via text
– SOS to Facebook and Twitter
– SOS to dedicated user console
– GPS location tracking
– 911 button/prompt
– Group SMS messages
The React Mobile App is free to download via Google Play (on select smartphones) or iTunes, and takes a matter of 1-2 minutes to set-up. After downloading the app, the first thing I did was accept the app’s location services so that it could send my location information in case of an emergency. The map below is just an example.
I then set up my contacts via the contacts button on the bottom bar. I had the option to manually add them or select them from my phone contacts, which I found to be much easier and faster. Also, via the settings button in the top left I could turn social media alerts on or off for Facebook and twitter contacts. That’s a great feature for getting the word out to many people, and fast, since people are always on social media.
Next, I tested out the SOS Alert by simply pressing the shield on the screen. Within seconds my husbands phone was alerted, along with my parents with a text message via a different number than my own. It provided them with a simple message that said Jennifer needed help now and gave a link to my location. Once I deactivated the SOS Alert, it sent a new text message to my contacts letting them know I was safe and no longer needed assistance.
On my end, the app remained silent and prompted for a 911 call which I declined. This feature allows for someone who is in danger to alert people fast without anyone else knowing. The React Mobile App would work great for young students on a college campus, for our older generations who may live alone, latch key children, and really anyone else who could benefit from this free app.
I like having the piece of mind of knowing with the touch of a button, I can alert key people to my location without ever saying a word. I’m also teaching my 5-year-old about this app because if there were ever a situation where I could not get to my phone, he can press the shield in the React Mobile App and alert help for us.
I encourage everyone to download the app. It may just save your life. Check out this quick video below for more information on the React Mobile App SOS Alert System.
