An app that works great in theory, if the iPhone is tracking your location, the least it can do is inform significant others when you are in trouble.
In practice though, if you are in trouble, are you likely to be able to get to your iPhone and open an app to inform others that you are feeling unsafe. And is there an easy way to notify people that you are now not feeling unsafe?
Could this be the app that cried wolf?
Either way, I hope you never need to use it.

Bitcoin is so passe, if you want to get on the ground floor of another virtual currency, then Litecoin may be your ticket.
This app is meant to be able to send payments through NFC and also via QR-codes, but the camera functionality is suspect. Another problem is that the blockchain can take days to sync.
But that's all part of the price of getting in on the ground floor of the next virtual currency that will free us from our corporate and governmental overloads, isn't it?

Are you in Dorrigo? Do you need a pie? Then this app is absolutely for you!
So maybe the trendiest food blogueurs are dismissive of the humble meat pie, but clearly it's what the people want. How else do you explain the explosion of Pie Face "cafes" appearing all over the place?
One of the selling points of this app is that, while its pie coverage is sparse, it has mostly bakeries. Franchisees need not apply, and that makes us judge this app at three and a half dollops of tomato sauce.
