[prMac.com] London, UK - Origin8 Technologies are pleased to announce the release of iWitness, a complete personal safety solution for the Apple iPhone. iWitness provides a powerful suite of GPS enabled alert and reporting tools, with server side location tracking and one touch 'panic button' emergency activation.
With over 17 million sold worldwide, the iPhone is the mobile phone of choice for a growing number of people, and is therefore the device they have on hand in emergency situations. iWitness expands on standard telephone emergency functionality with the following features:
* Create an iWitness Alert Group of up to 16 friends, family members or professionals. One touch instantly sends an email alert to group members, including the user's GPS location.
* Customise Alert Group settings and compose alert texts in advance. Store personal information, medical conditions and GP details for easy emergency access.
* A remote server can track the user's GPS location at automatic intervals for added peace of mind.
* Record events with the iPhone's camera or microphone, then email recordings to contacts in an iWitness Alert Group. Recordings are also stored on a secure server, meaning evidence is not lost even if the iPhone is stolen, broken or confiscated.
iPhone or iPod touch 2.0 or later
Pricing and Availability:
iWitness is available on the iTunes App Store for $0.99 (USD) or regional equivalent.
