I will present my second application, something more serious than « La classe américaine » and it can be really usefull. this is my step-brother that gave me this idea. Today, I have just reach 7500 downloads (Update 12/10/2011 : 46000) in just over a month. I take this opportunity to do some ads :p
This application use the ICE program (In case of emergency), that permit to call rescues and contacts in one touchscreen « In case of emergency ». Hope that you never need to use my application ! Below, the Android Market description :
« ICE: Emergency Contact » is an application that helps people who have problem or who are victim of accidents. It is based on the ICE program that consists in saving a contact who is named « ICE » in your contact list. This contact has medical informations about you.
In this application, you can save useful informations for rescue workers (allergy, medication, condition, identity, organ donor, blood type …) and contact people « in case of emergency ».
Thus, with only one click on your screen, send SMS alerts to all your saved contacts and call rescue workers immediately ! Your contacts will know where you are and will be able to help you !
Place a widget on your homescreen to alert your circle of contacts (compatible with alternative lockscreens like ScreenLocker).
This application was developped from the advice of an ambulance driver.
List of permissions :
- Send SMS to contact your saved contacts when you need it
- Access your contact list to choose contacts
- Get GPS coordinates to help your saved contacts to find you in case of emergency
Private informations saved in your application belong exclusively to you and are only accessible by you on your Androphone.
This application exists in two versions :
- Free version, limited at two contacts (here)
- Paid version, free of ads and without limitations (here)
For this applciation I have used a lot of news features that I have never used :
- Use GPS
- Send SMS
- Access to user contacts
- Call contact
- Create widget
If you need help for a feature from this application, post a comment, I’d do a tutorial about it’s implementation.
