[prMac.com] Simpsonville, SC - Announcing that LinkingCommunities.com, the developer of ialertTHEM, has just released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. ialertTHEM 1.2 syncs with the user's contact list, making it easy to add up to 12 contacts to the app. Whether they're in an emergency situation, running late for a meeting, or just need help finding a location, users can send an alert to their selected contacts with a tap of the screen. This app is like having a personal emergency response system that users can take with them, wherever they go.
ialertTHEM 1.2 features include:
* Syncs with iPhone contact list
* Easily add up to 12 contacts
* Alert contacts with one touch
* Notify 911 for me
* Locate Me
* Call Me
* Create a message
Once the user has added their contacts to the app, the contacts receive an email to let them know. They also have 3 options as to how they want to receive future alerts. They can choose to be notified by email, SMS, or via their Twitter account.
Users have four notification categories to choose from: Call Me, Locate Me, Create a Message, and Notify 911 For Me. The Call Me feature lets users send a quick message to their contacts to call, and the Create a Message feature allows for a custom message.
Users are advised that the Notify 911 For Me feature is not a substitute for dialing 911. If they are in an emergency situation, and are able, they should call 911 before they do anything else. Using the Notify 911 For Me feature alerts their contacts that they need help, and delivers a link to a map with their exact location, the route they're travelling, and markers for any stops they have made along the way. This feature also uses a 5 second delay, giving users time to cancel the notification if they accidentally chose the wrong option.
The Locate Me feature is a great help to users who get lost or need their contacts to meet them at their location. Like the 911 feature, it delivers a message and a link to a map for the contact's convenience.
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.0 or later
* 1.1 MB
