Microsoft introduces safety app for Indian Windows Phone users

Named as Guardian, the app allows users to call for help through an 'SOS' alert button and also connect to security agencies, police and hospitals easily via this app in times of distress.

Microsoft India has introduced a new safety application, called Guardian, for Windows Phone users. Guardian enables users to switch on a ‘track me’ feature in the app that lets friends and family track them in real time using Microsoft Windows Azure cloud services and Bing Map APIs. Guardian users can call for help through an ‘SOS’ alert button and also connect to security agencies, police and hospitals easily via this app in times of distress.

To use Guardian effectively, users need to add the names of friends, family members and security groups to the settings. In an emergency situation, the app can be used to alert them, via the SOS button. All the user has to do is tap the SOS button. The phone then sends a distress SMS to all buddy mobiles, notifying them of the emergency along with location details. At the same time the SOS button also sends emails to buddy email IDs and posts to private Facebook groups, if registered.

It is currently avaialble from Windows Phone store for free.
