Emergency+ appThis app was recently mentioned on the Australian ABC and should be installed on all our phones in my opinion. The app was developed by Australia’s emergency services and their Government and industry partners, helping people to call the right number at the right time, anywhere in Australia.

It uses your mobile phone’s GPS functionality so callers can provide emergency call-takers with their location information as determined by their smart phone. ‘Emergency+’ also includes SES and Police Assistance Line numbers as options, so non-emergency calls are made to the most appropriate number.

It would be very useful in those situations when your exact location is not easily described over the phone (and in an emergency situation it is easy to get flustered) as it displays your location in GPS coordinates as well as a street address if you have an internet connection.

This is one app that could literally save your life and well worth the small download.
