/ gps/text walkers safety message app
My garbled title probably explains why I'm having a problem finding this!
I seem to recall discussion about an app that utilised a smartphones gps to send a sporadic text with co-ordinates/grid ref to pre determined number with a preset message, such as "'I'm ok @ xx o'clock"
Of course now I can't find anything like that.
Does it ring a bell with anyone?
Mammut has an app with an emergency SMS feature.
I actually have an app like that on my iPhone. GPS to SMS it's called. You can pre program who the main number you send it to, so when you are out it only takes 3 button clicks to send the message or email. It sends a link to google maps as to your location as well as the GPS co ordinaries.
Ah yes, this one doesn't do that, which would be a useful feature actually.
