Notion Ink, a Bangalore based company has launched I’m Shakti an android app to help the users reach out in emergency situations. The app works similar to the Safety Assistance feature that Samsung introduced with Galaxy S4 and later in couple of other Galaxy devices.
How I’m Shakti works?
Once installed, the app resides in the background and when in emergency situation if you have to notify your contacts you have listed to reach out in tight situations, all you have to do is press the power buttons 5 times in quick succession. Quick Send Emergency SMS fires a pre-set message to the emergency contacts or alternatively you can customize your message and send it to the emergency contacts.
When you send the SMS, it will intimate the emergency contacts the message with your location. The location will always be included regardless of whether your GPS or Internet is on. Turning on GPS and internet is on, it will give a very accurate picture of your location right from the street address. If the GPS is off, the emergency SMS will include the approximate latitude and longitude tracked from the mobile operator network.
Additionally, within the app you can dim the screen display or turn off the connectivity services when low in battery and to save power. The user can also put the phone in silence from the app menu.
