About iSurvive:

Ever feel unsafe? In less than 5 seconds, if you are abducted, attacked, suffer an accident or medical emergency, iSurvive® can tell your loved ones what’s happened and where you are. And with its unique range of additional personal safety and reorientation aids, iSurvive® is truly your ultimate rescue app.

Time is of the essence for an attack or accident victim: the quicker and more efficiently the alarm can be raised after an incident, the better the chances are for an effective rescue. The iSurvive personal safety app addresses this in a simple and very robust way. With a little practice you will not have to think, or hesitate, in rapidly deploying iSurvive to call for your emergency rescue.

iSurvive Features Include:

• Attack and Accident modes:

Use iSurvive’s automated panic button functions when every second counts:

With just three touches, iSurvive dispatches an appropriate pre-written emergency alert SMS, including your GPS location and a Maps link, to up to three pre-chosen recipients best suited to coordinate your rescue. The names and mobile numbers of all recipients are presented in the SMS.

If you are moving, or being moved, iSurvive automatically transmits your GPS location and Maps link updates, in real-time. The recipients of your emergency alert can track you via a second link within the SMS. The location updates continue until you deactivate the app.

• Manual Mode:

For use when time permits a full explanation:

Each manually-typed SMS automatically includes your GPS location and Maps link, delivered to the same pre-chosen recipients.

• Call International Emergency Services:

One-touch call to 112, when circumstances permit.

• My Location:

iSurvive shows you where you are on a satellite map, including your GPS coordinates.

• Point:

A 3D, two-mode navigation and reorientation aid. Either pinpoint your current location before setting out so as to assist your return, or enter where you are heading for.

• Light:

A three-mode feature which functions as a flashlight, flashes “SOS” in Morse Code, or turns your typing into Morse Code flashes.

• False Deactivation:

Use iSurvive's False Deactivation feature if your attacker tries to force you to cancel your emergency alert.

• Added Value:

Use iSurvive as a focus for discussion about personal safety, dealing with emergencies, or as a teaching aid.
