Watcher - Get Home Safe for iOS

By Wantr ApS Free

Developer's Description

Watcher lets your friends virtually watch out for you. Its a simple way to be a little more safe when youre out alone after dark.It works like this: You enter your destination and choose one or more contacts to watch over your trip. If you start running, go off your path, stop for too long, or get your headphones yanked out, Watcher will ask if you are alright. If you do not respond within 30 seconds, your watchers will be notified, and asked to contact you. They dont need to have the app installed on their own devices.In case of emergency, you can call 911/112 (US/EU) from the app with a single tap.*** WHAT OUR USERS SAY ***"Now my friends can just follow me on Watcher and they dont have to stay on the phone with me the whole night!"- Camilla"So there is finally an app for all the girls! Spread the word!"- Atos"I just tried the app and it is super smart! So happy for the recommendation."- Camilla"Its just a great idea! Now one doesnt have to be so afraid of walking alone."- Amanda"Yes! Just biked home safely through the citys dark and dodgy streets thanks to Watcher ;)"- Maria*** INTRODUCING: PRIVATE TRIPS ***We're introducing Private Trips. If you make your trip private, you can have Watcher keep an eye on you *without* sharing your location with anyone. Maybe you're coming home a little later than expected and you don't want to wake anyone up, or you just prefer to travel under the radar... In private mode, Watcher will keep your journey a secret *unless* something bad happens on the way. Get to your destination safely and no one will ever know you used the app. But if you set off an alarm and fail to respond, then we'll alert your watchers immediately. Neat, right?Read more: http://watcher.io/faq/Feedback and support: help@watcher.ioWe're always trying to improve your experience. If you feel safer with Watcher, please take a moment to review our app.Get home safe!***Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

What's new in version 2.8.0

This update contains bug fixes and improvements:- We fixed a nasty bug where the app would crash if you had a contact with a single-digit phone number in your phones address book.- By popular demand, Watcher will now notify you when your friends join our little community.- We added two new steps in the signup flow explaining to new users why Watcher needs access to Location and Notifications. Of course, as a returning user you probably already know this, but just in case:* Location lets you share your trips with your watchers.* Notifications lets us ask you if youre alright *before* alerting your watchers to a possible emergency when you set off a trigger (e.g., sudden running or having your headphones yanked out).* Notifications also lets you receive trip requests and alarms as a watcher when your family and friends make trips.Thanks for watching out for each other. You're the best!As always, we would love to hear your feedback and suggestions. Just hit us up on help@watcher.io.
