3 Apps to Get You Home Safely on St. Paddy's Day
Watch Over Me
Watch Over Me is an app that will be your lucky charm when walking or riding alone after a night out celebrating St. Paddy’s Day. All you have to do is set an amount of time that you want the app to keep watch on you. If you don’t tap the “I’m Safe” button by the end your set time, your emergency contacts will be notified. You can also add details like the location you’re going, pictures and other notes. The app also alerts you if you are entering a potentially unsafe area.
If you find yourself in a panicked situation, Parachute is an extremely valuable app because it records both voice and video. As soon as you hit the Parachute icon, your emergency contacts will be alerted of your location and send a live stream straight from the camera on your phone. Parachute continues to live stream and project location details until the phone dies, and your emergency contacts will be able to save the video to their device for evidence.
NoonlightNoonlight allows you to discreetly contact a certified dispatcher if you feel there is danger. Simply trigger the alarm in the app and a dispatcher will send you a chat message to verify everything is okay. The dispatcher will ask you a few questions and if need be, send emergency services to you, or if you don't respond, help will be sent to your location. Noonlight is like your own personal bodyguard!
