I'm Getting Arrested for Android

Editors' Review


I'm Getting Arrested is a creative Android app that, according to developer Quadrant 2, was inspired by a real-life "Occupy Wall Street" incident. It lets you quickly notify your family, friends, and crack legal team (if you have one) of your situation with a single tap of your finger. Just initially enter a custom message and some SMS-ready numbers to contact in the event of your arrest. Then, as you're about to be corralled into the back of a squad car, fire the app up and long-press the bull's-eye for 2 seconds. From there, you can rest assured that your message will be sent to the appropriate contacts.

As you can imagine, I'm Getting Arrested can be used for more than just incidents of wrongful detainment. It's actually a great shortcut for sending any kind of message in a hurry. It can also be used for messages that you send regularly. For instance, do you send the same text to your carpool partner every day? Well, with I'm Getting Arrested, you can just program it in, and long-press the bull's-eye instead of typing out your message every time.

From what we've seen, I'm Getting Arrested is straightforward and works exactly as described. Our only question is, why no Twitter or Facebook support? Considering it was inspired by a grassroots movement, it just makes sense, no? Built-in social media would not only expand the app's reach to potentially large numbers of friends and loved ones, but it would also serve as a bullhorn for rallying support after each arrest. Regardless, if you often find yourself in situations where police detainment is a possibility, you might want to download this app.
