The bSafe App. for both iPhone & Android when activated makes a distress call to a chosen "guardian" and also sends a unlimited number of texts with a GPS link of your location to other specified individuals. This is a great App. to have amongst your hunting buddies as they can raise the alarm if they receive a message and since they probably know the terrain and places where you hunt, they can guide the rescue services direct to your location.
There are two different versions of the App. available, the standard FREE version or the Premium version which can be paid in monthly instalments or slightly cheaper if you pay for the full year in advance. To be honest I think the free basic version is good enough for 95% of people and this is the version I use.
Here's is a link to the bSafe website:
|The App. running and ready to activate!|
As you can see the interface is very simple to use, once you have saved your list of guardians you simply open the App. and press the red SOS button to activate the SOS call and text messages. There is a several second delay before the App. makes the call or sends the texts allowing you to cancel/stop the action if activated in error.
You should always inform friends/family when and where you go hunting and your expected time of return, this App. does not remove this responsibility but is a great addition to you safety when out hunting.
Hunt safe... Hunt happy! =)
