A Guardian Angel In Your Pocket

A new app available for the iPhone has brought personal security into the 21st century.

myGuardianAngel is an app that will notify your friends and family if there’s an emergency. It allows you to pick members of your contact list and add them to an emergency contact group who will get an alert when the app is “triggered.” The people on your list receive a text and email that there may be trouble. The message contains your GPS location and a link to audio and/or video captured by the phone.

When activated, the app will record 30 seconds of audio and video footage. The recordings are uploaded to a secure server almost instantaneously, so in the event of a crime being committed, destroying the phone won’t destroy the evidence. The app can also be used in situations that aren’t quite dangerous, but potentially could be. By concealing your phone, audio recordings sent to the server could be just enough to let your loved ones know that you may be in trouble.

myGuardianAngel is available for iOS devices, and at just .99¢, it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.
