TechBits: Emergency Apps (02.05.14)

Posted: Updated:

A couple of free apps could give your loved ones peace of mind- or even let them know you need help in an emergency,

Glympse allows you to let people track you by GPS.  You send out Glympse alerts to people you select from your contacts, and they use a link to watch your position and even your speed, if that option is selected.  People can also request to track you on Glympse.  The tracking is opt-in, so people cannot track you unless they are authorized.

React Mobile has GPS tracking- but also can send out S.O.S. messages to a contact list you define.  The same contact list can also get mass SMS messages from you.  The same contact list is used for all functions.
