Gabe the Guardian, an application being developed by Michael Monahan, Monahan Consulting, for iPhone and Android devices, is designed to allow users to alert their closest friends and family if they are in an emergency, an unfamiliar location or just want to check-in.
“Mobile phones are a part of our daily lives and daily activities,”
Gabe the Guardian app has three essential functions:
• Emergency – Allows users to send an emergency message, including timestamp, GPS information and a photo, to a pre-selected list of contacts with the touch of a button.
• Locate Me – This feature allows users to send a link with their GPS information, allowing friends and family to view the user’s location on a map. This feature provides additional flexibility for users who want key people to be informed of the user’s location.
“This is an important step in turning smartphones into personal safety devices,” Monahan said. “Currently, there aren’t enough safety apps or even a ‘Safety and Security’ category in the App Store or Android Market. Hopefully this app helps spur the development of more safety apps, the creation of a ‘Safety and Security’ category and even an increase in smartphone sales.”
