Since developing Diabetes Helpers, the team at HelpAround seen thousands of strangers stepping up to help each other, and have also learned how much fear our users have to cope with. They came to realize how imperative it is for anyone to get a hold of the people they trust the most, in times of distress. This is why they built Alert2.
The app is very simple: pressing a big red button or shaking the phone allows anyone to alert and conference-in the people they trust. And they designed it not only for the diabetes community, but for anyone living or caring for someone at risk of experiencing physical or emotional distress: Asthma attacks, severe allergic reactions, addiction relapses, panic attacks, dementia-related confusions, Crohn’s flare ups, and the list goes on and on. In all of these moments, fine motor skills deteriorate and thinking can become muddled, which makes it difficult to properly navigate a smartphone. So they made it as easy as a shake of the phone to send an alert.
Alert2 is available for download on iOS1, and Android1 mobile phones.
