App of the Month

 

BSAFE (free)

Since the sweeping protests in India have called the nation’s attention to women’s safety, we cannot find a more apt time to feature this app and stress its importance. BSafe is a GPS based app that sends SOS messages to mobile numbers of relatives/friends you have previously chosen as your emergency contacts. At an emergency, just push the big red button and the app will send an instant SOS message with your location to the numbers you have chosen. There is also a fake call option that will call your phone so that you can get out of uncomfortable or unwanted situations.
