Help Me S.O.S allows you to ask for help from family and friends immediately with just one click and send them the exact location you are on.
After pressing the button, app will automatically send an SMS message informing the sender(the previously selected trusted contacts) of the danger. In addition, the selected contacts receive the geographical location of you in order to provide the assistance as soon as possible.

Considering the stress that a person experiences when he receives this type of SMS, use the application responsibly and exclusively when you really need help.

Since app send SMS, you'll be charged as regular SMS costs (for each message)

How to use:
- Open app settings
- Set trusted contacts
- Set emergency numbers for your country (this will be used later to fast call them by simply click on icon)
- Tap on a big button will ask you for a needed permissions
- Tap again to test the button.

This actions should be done on first app launch

Use this app just when you really need it.

Thanks dude brilliant idea!
A suggestion though..Can you add option to share location by pressing power button,or volume up/down repeatedly? Some like me,have a broken power button.Also is possible when activating this service,location services to open?Because i have them always turned off for security reasons..

Suggestion for power saving and location accuracy improvement

Hello,

As we know, leaving the Android's location function operating in high accuracy mode (meaning GPS always on) consumes a lot of power.

We also know that any app running under a normal Android userid is not allowed to turn the GPS on by itself.

Would it be possible to add an option in the app (for rooted phones) to turn the GPS on when we app's emergency button is clicked on
and turn it off right after the SMS is sent ?

This way the SMS recipient would get the most accurate position from the person needing help, and the power saving would be great.

Thanks !

Hello, since application already have some sensitive permissions such as SEND_SMS and PHONE_CALL I wont risk to be banned from Play Store. Application already have an indicator at the bottom telling whether the GPS is On or Off. Thanks for suggestions. :)
