The HELP! app is a free smartphone application to call for help in case of an emergency. The app was the winning concept in Our Mobile Generation. In this Dutch innovation competition, Enviu and Vodafone called for participants to think of smartphone applications that could create social impact.
Fast and appropriate action in case of emergencies can save lives. The app is provided with a HELP! button that puts you through to emergency call centre. At the same time, the app uses GPS to find people nearby who also installed the app. Bystanders receive the alert on their smartphones and see where and how they can offer help.
