The broken English is less than ideal but SOS info is a potentially very valuable app if you ever get in trouble.

Life, for the most part, is quite safe, but for those moments where we could do with help, it’s useful to know that apps such as iHelpPlus exist.

iHelpPlus offers multiple useful features for those concerned about their safety. First of all, there’s a built-in flashlight facility and a place to store personal and medical information.

More importantly comes the alarm functionality that means users can send a distress message to an emergency contact along with their current location and a request to contact the local police. Both audible and silent alarms are possible, lending itself to different situations.

A delayed alarm feature is also provided enabling users to set up a custom alarm that is activated if they don’t enter a pass code in time, thereby offering an extra source of protection if something happens to them. In each case, if the alarm is activated, GPS monitoring kicks in and informs emergency contacts of the user’s location.

Additionally, users can add 4 quick contacts that are always accessible at the tap of a button.

A subscription service is required to fully use iHelpPlus after the first month of use which comes free with the $0.99 purchase of the app. $6.99 seems pretty cheap to me for peace of mind, however.

iHelpPlus is available now.

FREE!
