Shake for Help: Review
There may be times when its not possible to dial a phone number when you’re in an emergency. Heck, it may not even be possible to open your smartphone, launch an app and seek help. BrilliSoft, LLC. have come up with an app that uses patent pending technology to get help simply by the shake of a phone.
To get started, download the Shake for Help app from the Play Store. When you launch the app, you will notice an instruction page telling you about the app. Click Next.
Now its time to configure the app. First, add your four digit pin number. Click Next. In the next screen, add an email address, so that if you forget your PIN number, BrilliSoft will be able to resend the info. Then click Next.
In the next screen, you will have to choose three contacts from your phone whom you can notify in case you are in any trouble. Once you have chosen the desired contacts, click Next.
In the next screen you will be asked to shake your phone aggressively to create an alert. Then, place your phone on a flat surface and wait for a few seconds. The phone will vibrate confirming that the trigger has been set. If not, you will be asked to reset the trigger.
That’s it. The next time you find yourself in an emergency, just shake your phone as you did when you set the trigger and all your contacts will instantly receive a notification that you might be in trouble and need help. It will also relay your location info along with the SOS message.
If you want to, you can reconfigure the phone and run through the steps again. The Shake for Help app runs in the background and is an ideal personal security device to have with you at all times.
