Now here’s an app worth mentioning about especially if you are living in India. VithU, is an emergency App that, at the click of the power button of your smartphone two times consecutively begins sending out alert messages every two minutes to your contacts that you feed into the app as the designated receivers or guardians.
The message says “I am in danger. I need help. Please follow my location.” The receiver will receive a link to your location every two minutes giving them your updated location. Also, you will get updates on the Crime Scene in India and a “Tips Feed” option exclusively giving you safety tips in an emergency situation. The app also has a separate tab that features as a reminder for your favorite Channel V Crime Show “Gumrah” with the “Show Alert” option in the Menu Bar which will automatically alert you whenever Gumrah is on Air.
Last but not the least, if you have been a victim or witnessed a Crime you can share the incident with Channel V by posting it in the “Submit Your Story” option in the Menu Bar. This is an absolutely amazing initiative taken by Channel V in creating awareness about the on going safety concerns in not only India but all over the world. Download VithU now (for free) from the Google Play Store and keep your friends and loved ones safe.
