ALWAYS FEEL SAFE ALONE IN ANY TAXI
Taxi Safe is free and the first iPhone app of its kind.
The app keeps track of the taxi user’s current location (via GPS) and taxi number, both of which are displayed at all times. If the user needs help, all they have to do is click the large “HELP” panic button and a pre-written SMS is sent to three recipients telling them the user’s taxi number and location and asking the recipients to call the Police. The recipients’ details are automatically stored in the app so they do not need to be readded, but can be changed at any time.
When the user arrives home safely (as will hopefully be the case), the user can click the “Arrived Safely” button and inform the three recipients of their safe arrival via SMS or post a pre-written facebook update.
This app will no doubt help frightened lone taxi users and prevent assaults and rapes by taxi drivers and other passengers that have made the news in recent years in countries such as Australia, Canada, the USA, the UK, France and Argentina.
Please download and try out the app. It’s free and you never know when you might need it.
