Angry SOS Application (developed by me)

SOS App



Hi guys, finally Google has activeted my google app inventor account..so i started making my first application..that was the first thing that i thought.

Basically what this app do is to send with a text message your GPS position (address from google maps, latitude, longitude and accuracy)

The use is simple. You have to choose a contact (with the search button) and then touch the picture.

Yeah here there are really serious developers..but this application even though simple, useless..got my day! ..btw i'll try to improve it

feedbacks are appreciated...for the app follow the link at the third post



and sorry for my bad english (i think that it's a little bit rusty )

Known issues:
- The app send the last GPS position saved (it does mean that even though you have gps turned off, it will not send the current position but the last saved)
- Someone had a problem within the app (random crashes)

My idea of an SOS app was like this:
User can select 5 cellphone numbers. Pressing SOS button sends SMS with help message and position to all of them. App then tracks if one of these numbers call back within a defined period of time.
If no one calls back, phone calls paramedics automatically and enables hands free mode and speaker...
