The free personal safety app bSafe™ is available worldwide on iPhone® and Android™, it was announced today. The app will also go live on BlackBerry® devices in the next few days. Following its meteoric success in select European countries (topping charts and beating Angry Birds® and Facebook® app downloads), bSafe is now ready to provide peace-of-mind to users everywhere.
bSafe is a free smartphone app that gives users a way to instantly reach their selected contacts — Guardians — when help is needed. When the one-touch SOS is employed, Guardians are alerted with an emergency text message that includes the sender’s exact location. A direct call is also placed to one specified Guardian. Additional features are showcased in the bSafe demo video and at neverwalkalone.com.
