I just ran across this app, and the first thing I thought was " This would be a great safety app for agents". I think the simplicity of it is it's best feature.
Let's say an agent is heading out to a first time showing in an area he/she's not real familiar with. You can mark your route with a starting point and an ending point, and then from the showing address back home or to office, or wherever. Simply type in your route, then ask for some of your contacts to be your companion on the way to and from, then hit " Start a Trip" Maybe your husband, a buddy agent, and friend, etc accept your companion request, then off you go. You arrive safely. All is good.
Now, you're done with showing, it's getting dark, and you need to get home or back to office. You repeat procedure, using same or different companions. Now you feel someone is following you to your car, you simply tap on " I Feel Nervous". That puts your companions on alert. You'll probably receive some text messages to check on you. " if it was false alarm, you can text " I'm ok".
In the event you feel it's an emergency, and you just don't feel safe, you can tap on " Alert Mode" which will contact 911 / local authorities. Great for kids as well walking or riding their bikes from school, library, baseball practice, etc.
It's FREE, it's simple, and it's available for IOS and Android
We've got eyes on you!
