99 cents is a small price to pay for safety anywhere you travel. Help Call is a really simple app. You open it, it finds where you are, and you press one of those four large buttons which will each connect you to the local emergency service which it depicts. Better still, if you’re even too injured to press them or can’t see clearly enough, or even can’t figure out which symbol is which, once the app is open you can just shake your phone and help will be on the way. This app works in 126 countries so far and is available in English, German, French, Spanish and Polish, and more languages are supposedly going to be added soon. It even has a feature where you can add your own personal emergency contact, so while there are the three buttons to contact police, fire and ambulance, your “Friend” button might call maybe your parents or a close friend or relative so you can let them know what is going on ASAP. This app would be especially great for you Travel Freaks who like to go it on your own. Solo adventures are always epic and amazing but there is also the added danger of having to deal with a potential emergency situation without help.

Pros

  • Cheap, only 99 cents

Cons

  • There are literally none this app can only help you

Verdict

Have you ever wished you had an app like Help Call while traveling?

American by chance, but Roman by choice, Sarah is currently feeding her adventurous soul with expatriatism and pizza. Her finest moments are always on the wrong bus with a backpack and an upside down map, waiting to see what the world’s got for her next, so long as she can blog about it. She likes writing more than talking, dolphins more than humans, old movies more than new, and Rome more than anything else.
