I know that it’s every parent’s worry when it comes to keeping track of our kids whereabouts. What if there was a way (like having a tracking device on them) at all times? What if there was an easier way for them to just check in? Well now there is with this new app called React Mobile.
React Mobile app turns our smartphones into a powerful safety device which will alert your emergency contacts when you’re in danger or feel unsafe with a touch of a button.
How does the app work?
React Mobile helps you turn your smartphone into a powerful lifeline. Use the “Follow Me” feature to let your self selected contacts track your whereabouts in real-time whenever you’re concerned for your safety. It’s perfect for running or walking alone early in the morning or late at night, keeping track of kids, or meeting a client for the first time. Simply touch the “I’m Safe” button to let your contacts know when you’ve safely arrived.
In an emergency situation, press the SOS shield on the app to send out a panic alert containing a link to your GPS location to select emergency contacts via text message and email. You can also post it to Facebook or Twitter. Once the SOS alert is activated, you’re automatically prompted to dial 911.
NOTE: For users outside of North America, the app allows you to choose which country you live in (or are traveling to) from the settings tab and when an SOS alert is triggered, you will be prompted to dial the appropriate emergency authority depending on you’re geographic location (example: in the UK the app will prompt a user to dial 112/999 not 911).

About the React Mobile:
React Mobile Co-Founder, Robb Monkman, was inspired to create the mobile safety application after being held at gunpoint during a home invasion while in college several years ago. Wanting to do more for on and off campus safety he created a tool that could be used to silently and discreetly alert a wide network, including the authorities, of an emergency and its location. After testing several beta products in various markets for over a year, the React Mobile safety app was finally launched in March 2013.
