Telerik Launches Free Mobile Safety Application for Women in India

Telerik, a leading end-to-end provider of software development, lifecycle and content management tools and solutions, today announced the launch of “SafeBridge” - a new, free mobile application for personal safety in India. In response to recent crime incidents against women in India, Telerik’s team managed within 2 weeks – and with just 4 days for development by only 1 developer - to build, test and launch the beta version of the app on the Android market. The beta version of the application is currently available for both low-end and high-end Android phones and will soon be available for iPhone and BlackBerry devices.

Telerik’s “SafeBridge”, created to help vulnerable groups such as women, children, professionals, working late at night, foreign tourists and city visitors, allows users to send emergency SMSs with GPS information to preset lists of trusted contacts. There is no need for any registration to use the app.

Abhishek Kant, country manager of Telerik India, said: “Since opening our office in New Delhi in 2012, we at Telerik have made it our priority to be active citizens of this society. The urgency of the recent incidents required a prompt response and thanks to Telerik’ products, we are able to quickly build the application for all types of phone users.”

Using the safety app is simple. At the start of the application, the user first must preset the contacts of friends and relatives who will be notified in the case of an imminent threat. To decrease response time in emergency situations the app involves just the one-touch function of simply pressing a “HELP ME!” button to send out an SMS with GPS information. In the cases when the threat is over, there is an “I’m Safe” button to immediately notify contacts that everything is alright. “SafeBridge” can function with limited internet or no internet availability on the phone.

Telerik’s “SafeBridge” allows the user to personalize the “help” and “safe” messages. The application also provides a “Track Me” feature, which includes sending out the user’s current location at pre-determined intervals. The application also includes a Directory of police stations in Delhi. Going ahead, Telerik’s team plans to add other Indian cities to this police directory as well as city-by-city contact information of hospitals and NGOs in the country. The app will also include the option to report crimes the user witnesses but may not be the victim of.

The safety application is created using Telerik’s products Icenium, an integrated cloud environment for mobile app development and Kendo UI, comprehensive HTML5 and JavaScript framework for modern web and mobile app development. The combination of the two products allows the app’s creators to quickly and effortlessly build the application for all types of devices, without the need to install platform software development kits.

The application for Android can be downloaded for free here. One can also search for the term “safebridge” in the Google Play store to get the app. For latest news about the app, visit SafeBridge’s Facebook page.
