InEmergency is a free android mobile app (launched under B2C business model) by Paramatrix Technologies that provides a host of location-based features that can come handy in situations of emergency.
Unlike other free apps, InEmergency uses Network-based Location triangulation Technology that can determine your location even when there is no Internet or data services available. This makes InEmergency more dependable than apps that use GPS-based systems which relies on the availability of internet to determine location.
Using your location, InEmergency can help you with information regarding emergency services (along with navigation and directions) that are near you: viz., Hospitals, Blood Banks, Ambulance Services, Pharmacies, Garages, Police Stations, and Fire Stations.
In case of emergency, you have to just click on the button – ‘SOS’ to send an automated alert with the details of your current location as an SMS & Email to family and friends you would want to be alerted. In addition to these, Automate call would be triggered to your default contact.
‘First-Aid’ will equip you with all the information to execute first aid procedures. The information here is in the form of step-by-step instructions (notes), pictorial references with audio narratives wherever necessary.
‘Women’ of Inemergency has been designed to make information on Laws for Women, Women’s Rights, Government Schemes for Women, Women’s Helplines and Self-defence Tips, all available instantly, in one place.
You can look up the section – ‘Helpline’ to call Citizen Utility Services (both governmental and Non-governmental), Emergency Helplines and Toll-free Helplines. With Helpline, you can contact the right authority without delays.
User experience is enriched with fluidic interface and navigation. In the next release on Google play store you will find integration's with social networks - Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
In addition to basic permissions, the InEmergency app needs access to other functions on your device for it to support the above features
