DescriptionWith a single click, you can send an alert to any number of people (parents, friends, colleagues...). The message is sent by SMS and/or email, and includes GPS data to locate you.
It is very easy to use and can be of great help in case you are in trouble or lost somewhere. The app uses either Wifi or local GSM antennas.
How to proceed:
When you start Alert Sender the program asks if you want to use the GPS locator. This is because Android does not allow apps to start GPS without the consent of the user.
Then the first time you use Alert Sender you must click on 'Settings' to install the type of messages you want to send. Fill the appropriate boxes with text or numbers. When you leave the settings page your Android phone will remember all the data you entered.
Enter the alert message to be sent: Hi, this is Lucy, please help me, call me back if you can.
SMS: enter as many phone numbers as you wish, separated by commas:
(here you can click on the phone book to retrieve numbers from you directory, or enter the numbers by hand)
EMAIL: Enter email addresses, separated by commas: (here you can click on the email directory book to retrieve email addresses, or enter the emails addresses by hand)
Enter a cancellation message: (in case you want to cancel the previous alert you can fill an excuse here) Hi, this is Lucy again, I am sorry, please ignore my previous message.
