"I hope PhoneFlare can contribute to the important dialogue of sexual assaults on campuses and above all provide a tool that gets people thinking about their own safety." Christopher Jarvis
NEW YORK, NY, August 22, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- PhoneFlare, a free app that texts friends and family your location when in danger and automatically calls your school's safety dispatch if you're on a supported campus, released today for iPhone and Android in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
Led by accredited filmmaker and game designer Christopher Cinq-Mars Jarvis, PhoneFlare works by ripping an accessory from the headphone or charging port, much like an emergency cord on a treadmill. Ideal for runners and those walking unaccompanied who fear they might be caught off guard. For more casual use, check-in times can be set where users must report within a pre-determined window or contacts are reached. Perfect for those who expect to be home at a certain time of night and want their friends to be alerted if something goes awry. This feature is also ideal for parents who want their children to check-in with their smartphone at a certain time, or perhaps for an elderly individual who wants their family contacted if they prove unable to reach a daily check-in on their phone.
If a user is on their campus in our in our ever growing, crowd sourced database of more than 700 universities, Michelle Trachtenberg's voice calls safety dispatch and relays the verified university email of the student, current position, and disposable link to their updated GPS coordinates. All contacts also receive this link via text, which opens GoogleMaps and tracks the position of the distressed, updating every 10 seconds.
