Travel Safe wins best utility app in the Australian Mobile Awards

Press Release
For immediate release:

London, England, 26 October 2013 – Travel Safe by LKapps is an application designed for iOS and Android. The app hopes to change how emergency situations are handled, even those that occur in place unfamiliar to the user. Travel Safe is currently available on the Apple App Store and Google Play store at a set price depending on the users’ region.

“Emergency situations are threatening, hostile and intimidating. It is important that an app such as Travel Safe exists in a time where these situations can occur more often that one would like. Travel Safe is unique in this context, giving the user immediate emergency phone numbers suitable to the area that they are in” said a representative from Webify Webify, professional mobile app marketing agency.

Travel Safe acts essentially as a safeguard for the user, providing instant access to the emergency phone numbers of any given area. The app is unlikely to be used regularly but it has been designed to be fast and intuitive for the average user – as these are two important factors in emergencies. Despite this, much care and consideration has been put into the design of the app to ensure a direct path to the right information.

Travel Safe has recently won Best Utility App in the 2013 Australian Mobile Awards. Users can instantly view police, medical and fire information on record. In-addition to this, users can add personal information for use by response crews and other individuals that may be required to use the app.

Over one billion people own smartphones, and LKapps took advantage of this with their latest application. Travel Safe is a quintessential safeguard for regular travellers and anybody travelling to an unknown place; whether that be for work or leisure reasons. Travel Safe is highly effective in its use of location detection. This feature lets the app locate the area the user is in and subsequently fetch the correct contact information.

“You can’t underestimate the power of technology, and Travel Safe is one of those applications that truly lets us rethink the future uses of smartphones and smart devices alike. Emergencies such as fires, crimes and incidents can be handled within around 5 seconds from launching the app, and it’s the marriage of great hardware and great software that allows us to achieve this“ – Jerome Appleby and Chris Ahearn, creators of Travel Safe.
