WHAT IS REACT MOBILE™?
React Mobile is a powerful safety app that turns your smartphone into a powerful lifeline. Our app features a “Follow-Me” feature that lets you share your location with friends and family so they can track your whereabouts in real-time and follow you to safety. Perfect for running alone, meeting new clients, keeping track of loved ones or for students walking alone through campus. Whenever you’re concerned for your safety React Mobile keeps you connected to loved ones until you reach a secure location. With React you can let your buddies know where you’re going, how long you’re going to be gone for and you can even include a personalized message. If the time expires on your “Follow-Me” session our app will automatically notify your trusted contacts letting them know that they should check in with you.
In an emergency, slide our app control to the Help Me SOS position to send out a widespread alert containing a link to your GPS location to your emergency contacts letting them know where you are and that you need help. You can optionally post your alerts to Facebook and Twitter to let even more people know that you need help. Whenever a React alert is activate our app automatically dials the local authorities.
React Mobile Co-Founder, Robb Monkman, was inspired to create the mobile safety application after being held at gunpoint during a home invasion while in college several years ago. Wanting to do more for on and off campus safety he created a tool that could be used to silently and discreetly alert a wide network, including the authorities, of an emergency and its location. After testing several beta products in various markets for over a year, the React Mobile safety app was finally launched in March 2013.
