A single tap of the icon and the user can send an alert to relatives or call the local emergency number for help - even when traveling globally.

In the event a user needs to signal or draw attention, MedicAll provides both a flash signal and alarm sound tool. When activated, MedicAll will signal the International Morse code pattern for SOS through the device's camera flash. Users can also choose to activate their own flash signal through the camera's flash or the device's screen light. Additionally, MedicAll contains an alarm button that can be activated to emit a high frequency alarm sound and draw extra attention. The alarm sound can be used in combination with the flash functions.
MedicAll includes a Shake feature that allows a customized message to be displayed after the device is shaken, even if there is a pin lock in place. A useful feature in the event the user is in a car crash or trips and loses consciousness, the impact will shake the device and release a predefined message of up to 90 characters in the device's display with an alert, just like an ordinary push message. The sensitivity of the push release can be set by adjusting the sensitivity bar to be either more of less sensitive. An alarm can also be set to sound after a predefined time if the push message is not read or cancelled.
Another emergency feature that MedicAll offers is the ability to customize the device's wallpaper with an image or text. This feature can be particularly helpful if the user has a chronic disease or medical condition that should be communicated in case of emergency. If the device is pin locked, MedicAll information will not accessible. Therefore, users can take a picture or import a photo from their library as wallpaper and add a message such as "In case of Emergency, please contact..." This customized wallpaper will be visible on the device even if it is pin locked.
MedicAll can collect all medical conditions and medication information without compromising the user's privacy. MedicAll is not connected to a server so the user has complete control over the information they have entered. The user can also utilize aliases such as "Father" or "Sister" in lieu of an emergency contact's real name. The vital information MedicAll stores includes:
* Profile picture
* Blood type
* Medical conditions
* Donor card
* Vaccine card
* Insurance card
Medicines, medical conditions, vaccinations, and insurance cards can be added into MedicAll by taking a photo of an existing card, adding a photo from your library, and/or typing in the text. The Donor card can be added via photo, text, or by filling out the Donor Card generator, which is built into MedicAll. Users can choose what parts they wish to donate (some or all) and select a contact for confirmation. If no card is added or created, the text in the Medical Information section of MedicAll will report that the user does not wish to donate any of their organs.
MedicAll can easily import emergency contacts and relatives' information through the user's Contact List. Users can choose whether their relatives are alerted via E-mail and/or SMS. MedicAll can send the relatives a predefined message that reflects their circumstances. For example, if the user is lost, the message, "I need help. My position is..." will be combined with the user's position and coordinates.
Under Location, MedicAll provides a shortcut to the native "Find My Phone" feature. There is also an Alert Member and Locate Member option. In the event that the person the user is trying to find has a phone with a different operating system, the Alert Member and Locate Member options can be helpful in contacting or track them down. This feature can be useful to help track children or individuals who require additional monitoring in the event something happens.
The Map function in MedicAll helps the user share their local coordinates in the event they are lost. When selected, MedicAll will display the user's present location utilizing Google Maps. An alert can be sent to relatives informing them of the user's specific coordinates as well as a text message. As long as the device has contact with the cellular network, users can locate, call or alert relatives through MedicAll.
