App DescriptionRipCord Music Player is a personal security device that offers you proven security, and personal protection, while listening to your favorite music on your iPhone.
With RipCord Music Player all you do in an emergency is pull the plug on your headphones or earbuds, literally just rip the cord right out of you’re iPhone, to trigger the alarm.
When RipCord Music Player is launched, the GPS tracker locks onto your position and continuously monitors your movements quietly in the background while you enjoy all the best features of your favorite music player.
Whether you pull the RipCord intentionally, in a struggle, or if someone tries to take your iPhone away from you... An emergency alarm will be triggered.
Instantly, RipCord Music Player sounds a load audible alarm and sends an emergency alert message to your friends and family by email and/or text message. This Alert Message let’s them know you need help and indicates exactly where you are (thanks to the built in GPS tracker).
There is no other app available that offers this feature, and although others may try to copy it, don’t be fooled... RipCord Music Player is the original.
