React Mobile iPhone App Review

{sponsored post}

Last week I was heading in to town (about a 25 minute drive) and I ran out of gas on the side of the highway.  Not only was that dangerous but it was also embarrassing!  That hasn't happened to me since college!  I posted on Facebook about my ordeal and my good buddy Crista said "too bad you don't have the React Mobile app".  I hadn't a clue what she was talking about but I was intrigued none the less.  Sitting on the side of the road with nothing but time while waiting for the tow truck to bring me gas, I downloaded React Mobile from the App Store.  Don't fret, its available for Android too! 

I don't know what it is but lately I have come across some pretty awesome iPhone apps.  I love playing games, listening to music and working from my iPhone.  I love everything about my phone.  Once I tweeted, "The first thing I see in the morning and the last thing I see before I close my eyes at night...iPhone, I love you"  That tweet was retweeted and faved more than any other!  So I must not be the only person in love with their iPhone.
 React Mobile has now given me yet another reason to love my iPhone-personal safety!

What is React Mobile you might be wondering?  Well, downloading this app turns your iPhone into a life-saving device!  Best part about React Mobile, its FREE!  

React Mobile can allow you to do the following: allow friends and family to follow you if you are alone and fearful with a "Follow-Me" feature, send an SOS alert to authorities, friends and family and a big bonus is that it can be used internationally!

The video below is pretty fantastic and it helps to highlight what the app is capable of.  

Scenarios where I can see React Mobile being very useful:

  • Out for a early morning or late night run/walk alone
  • Walking to your car late at night
  • Meeting someone on Craigslist to buy/sell an item
  • On a blind date
  • You hear gunfire near your lecture hall/work/home
React Mobile is your own personal silent alarm.  I know that I feel safer knowing that help is only a button-push away.  

How would React Mobile make you feel safer?  Where would you use it?

WHOA, really, I've never heard of this but really like the idea especially since I spend a lot of time out and about alone. I'll check into the Android version, thanks for sharing!

I need this app! I travel so much and always wonder what the heck I would do if I broke down in the middle of nowhere. Thanks for sharing.
