Check it out! iSurvive: The Ultimate Rescue App, 99c, iTunes

If time is of the essence and you need to let loved ones know you’re in danger, this app will let you do just that. 

Click onto the app and you can send a pre-written message, your location and a map link to your chosen contacts.

It will even track you via GPS, so your contacts can keep up to date if your location changes.

While you hope it will not be needed, it’s best to adopt the Scouts’ motto: be prepared.
