Phonebloks: future or farce

Phonebloks. What a brilliant concept.

Is this the future in motion, or a viral marketing campaign spinning its tires? You be the judge.

What do you think, future or farce?


Probably the best App Store review ever

Travel Safe received what is probably the best App Store review ever a few weeks ago…

By Nob!
“Mr – Fantastic application. A lot of thought has gone into making this app easy to use but with all the right information. I was lost in a jungle in Angola and the emergency services there found me very easily. Thanks again for this life saving app”

Nob! you are either a remarkably adventurous human being or extremely creative. Either way, thanks for the review. Drop us a line sometime, we’d love to hear all about it.

The review gauntlet has been thrown, keep ’em flowing.

I know, I know, I have 4 updates pending…

Emergency callers off the map

Thought Travel Safe was only for travellers… Think again!
The following article outlines the very real and potentially fatal issue facing emergency services in Australia. The issue is that they are unable to determine your location if you make a call to emergency services from a mobile phone. This is something we made sure to address when developing Travel Safe. When you make an emergency call with Travel Safe, your location is displayed at the top of the call screen, even when your phone only has SOS service. This allows you to easily inform the emergency call centre of your location and perhaps be the difference between life and death.
