Introducing… LiveSafe!

Developer: LiveSafe, Inc.
Price: Free!
Available on: iPhone
Ratings: on average 4 stars!

This app is really fascinating because it allows communication with college community safety officials using text, audio, and picture to contact them. It also allows you to “walk with a friend” using the SafeWak feature. So if you are walking home at night or after a concert, you can be in contact with a friend to ensure that you have someone that knows where you are at all times.

It also allows you to request a SafeRide if your community offers it and it shares location during an emergency. However, keep in mind that this is just a safety feature, it is not what you should rely on in an emergency situation.

The only downfall of this app is it is only created for certain college communities. Not all college campuses are set up with the app, but it’s something to look into. If you’re interested in this, make sure to contact the app owners to see what you can do to set your college up with this!

Try HealthTap!

This is really awesome! HealthTap allows you to be in contact with doctors by chat, video, audio 24/7. The doctors can recommend care for you and I think this is awesome that they volunteer their time to help others in the fastest way possible. It definitely does not replace going to see a doctor face-to-face, however, it is very efficient if you need help in a situation. For example if you are at a rave and you see that your friend or someone around you is not showing good signs of health, you can open the app and ask a doctor for some advice!

Check out Heart Rate!

This is such a cool app. It simply measures heart rate. All you do is place your finger to the camera on the back of your phone and within 30 seconds or so, it is able to detect heart rate! This could very important in telling yourself to slow down and take a break whether you are exercising or dancing the night away.
