[prMac.com] Austin, Texas - Plerts, Inc. is proud to announce the release of Plerts 1.0 for the iPhone, iPod touch, and Facebook. Plerts is a personal alert service focused on accessibility, real-time location, and privacy for medical and personal safety. Plerts is built around the concept of a "social safety net" which is a customized list of contacts that will simultaneously receive your alert via email, SMS, or even over Facebook and/or Twitter.
"When it comes to personal safety, Plerts puts privacy at the forefront," said Plerts co-founder, Colin Anawaty. "Nobody ever has to know where you are or what you're doing." Whether you are going on a blind date, making an exchange on Craigslist, or traveling the world, your actions are completely private unless the unfortunate happens and you fail to check back in. Only at this point is an alert sent with your real-time location and personal information to your pre-selected social safety net.
Originally designed for medical care, Plerts offers a highly-accessible communication platform to securely send periodic updates and vitals to off-site care providers while assuring a reliable safety net is in place should you become unresponsive due to adverse drug or diabetic reactions. Plerts also offers a one-touch medical life alert service for free that works virtually anywhere internet or mobile coverage is available.
