With the number of apps in Windows Phone Marketplace crossing the 30000 mark, here comes another great app that will act as a personal safety tool for your Windows Phone. Guardly, which is a mobile personal safety service, will now enable you to alert, connect and collaborate with your friends, contacts and other authorities during an emergency with a single tap on your Windows Phone 7.
Guardly is the first Mobile Personal Safety Service in North America that offers cross-platform support and availability on Windows Phone 7. With this app, alerted parties can collaborate in real-time by conference call, instant messaging and map-based location-aware positioning to coordinate response plans between you and your responders in an emergency. The app is perfect for young professionals, students, sports enthusiasts, travelers or anyone who works at night and is concerned about emergency situations.
Guardly strives to offer you the following features:
• Location Assure:
The app uses GPS, Wi-Fi hotspots and cell-tower triangulation to find your real-time location for the entire duration of an emergency incident.
• One tap activation:
Guardly alerts two safety networks altogether- your personal safety network by SMS, voice, e-mail; and 9-1-1 or any other emergency phone number.
• Network Assure:
The app consists of built-in intelligence to detect network failures and wait until a signal is present to transmit data and make calls to 9-1-1 to ensure you are connected to your safety network.
• Contact collaboration:
You can collaborate with emergency contacts in real-time by conference call, instant messaging and map-view thus showing nearby location of responders.
• Photo sharing:
You can share photos with your personal safety network instantly and securely.
• Auto-dial emergency services including 9-1-1 and more.
Apart from all these features, Guardly app is free to download on Windows Phone 7. Though the service costs you only $1.99 per month or $19.99 per year.
