This was brought to you by AdvertiseWithBloggers.com and React Mobile. All thoughts and words are my own.
I use a lot of apps on my phone. Some of them are for work, like Twitter, and my calendar and email. Others are for fun, like the handful of games I’ve downloaded. And still others are for shopping – keeping me on top of my shopping list, coupons, weekly sales flyers, and more.
Only one app can probably be considered “important” and that’s my GPS app. I am not the word’s best navigator without a map, so having GPS installed means I arrive at my destination on the first try more often than not. But now I have a second app that I consider to be important, and that’s the React Mobile app.
The React Mobile app is a free download for both iPhone and Android (thank you from an Android user!) that enhances personal safety. It has a “Follow Me” feature that lets contacts that you have designated keep track of your whereabouts. If you’re someone that likes to run in the park or are heading somewhere unfamiliar, this can grant you – and your loved ones – extra peace of mind.
Once you’ve arrived at your destination touch the “I’m Safe” button and those same contacts will know you’ve arrived at your destination. If along the way you have an emergency you just touch the SOS Shield icon on the phone, and your contacts will receive a panic alert with a link to your GPS location. It also will prompt you automatically to call 911 if desired.
