For those of you that missed it, here is Chris representing Travel Safe on Channel 9 News Perth.
Travel Safe is the Number 1 Paid iPhone App in Australia!!!
As of this morning, Travel Safe was the highest ranking paid iPhone app in Australia. Last night Channel Nine News Perth ran a great story on our app, and the results are in. Thanks to Channel Nine for seeing the great potential of our app, and to the viewers in Perth for the excellent response and feedback.
We’ve had some great feedback since our app launched last July. We were recognised by the 2013 Australian Mobile Awards, winning the best Utility App. Money Magazine ran a 3 page feature on our company in the November 2013 issue (with a great photo spread of Chris, one of the directors here at LKapps). And now Travel Safe has reached the highest ranking for Travel Apps in the Australian App Store.
Thanks to everyone who’s chipped in along the way. We’re always keen to hear from our users, keep the suggestions coming and we’ll keep on making our award winning app even better. We have some pretty interesting prospects coming up in the next few months, so we’ll keep you updated.
In the meantime, Travel Safe… and tell your friends about our app.
In light of the continuing bush fire disaster spreading throughout NSW, Australia, Chris and I have decided to make Travel Safe free for all iPhone users. Please help us to spread the word, this app can save lives.
Our state of NSW, Australia is on fire, and authorities fear the worst may still be to come. Help us to avoid tragedy and spread the word, Travel Safe, the award winning mobile safety app will be available for free for all iPhone users this weekend (Thursday 24th to Sunday 27th October). Everyone with a phone should have this installed. Travel Safe can help you connect with emergency services, and may save your home, your life, or the life of someone you love.
Travel Safe can make a real difference but we need your help to make it possible; so tell your friends, your neighbours, your family, even the neighbour’s dog. Help us to avoid tragedy, together we can make a difference.
Please stay safe,
Note: Due to limitations with Google Play, we are unable to lower the price on our Android version at this time. We are working on solving this issue and will get back to you when we have more information.

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