More often than not we might not be in a frame of mind or may not have the response time to hit a particular button for rescue or help. The Shake2Safety app can help, if you are stuck in any untoward situation or you need to shake your phone vigorously. A preconfigured number is called for your rescue. If you are connected to a data network, pressing down the power button five to six times in succession, automatically sends audio, video, and the location of your whereabouts to a trusted person.

Though we hope not, emergencies and risks to safety mostly come uncalled. Whether you are a man or woman, these apps can be useful to rescue yourself or your loved ones from untoward situations.
