A mobile solution for the families of Indian army personnels, veteran and ex-servicemen to stay connected with their loved ones has been put forth by Delhi-based Indianeye Security. An app, dubbed Eyewatch was recently launched by Chief of Army Staff, Gen. V.K. Singh, yesterday. Just like a recent app against sexual harassment that was launched in Delhi, this app can also prove to help stop assaults on women, apart from ragging in colleges, medical emergencies and road accidents.
