Melbourne, Australia – Safety Switch, the ultimate personal panic alarm for iPhone and iPod touch, is now available from the Apple App Store for $0.99. Designed from the ground-up to be fast, reliable and easy, Safety Switch allows users to immediately and discreetly notify friends and family if they are in trouble or feeling threatened.
Using Facebook, Twitter and SMS capabilities, Safety Switch will send out the users current location and a pre-defined distress message, enabling friends and family to quickly come to your aid. In addition, a one-touch shortcut to emergency services, a torch and loud, audible alarm serve to ensure users are out of danger as quickly as possible.
With Safety Switch, you can:
* Send a distress message with your location to friends and family on Facebook and/or Twitter
* Send a text message with your location to an emergency contact
* Activate a loud siren to startle predators and alert bystanders
* Use your iPhone as a torch to alert others nearby and see in dark places
* Call emergency services with one tap
Safety Switch is the most full-featured panic alarm available, with an uncluttered and clear interface. It is easy to use and simple to set up. It features a sequential alarm, so that each alarm can be activated as a situation escalates, and shortcuts to each individual alarm. Safety Switch is completely configurable – Facebook and Twitter can be enabled or disabled easily, and custom distress messages simply and easily set.
Developed by Melbourne, Australia developer Edward Dowling, Safety Switch is targeted at people who want to feel safe and secure, with help always at hand. Whether travelling or at home alone, Safety Switch is an elegant and invaluable tool.
