It does many things, but here are the most important:
- Push the panic button and you can contact your family IMMEDIATELY if you have an emergency.
- The GPS map shows you EXACTLY WHERE your loved ones are so you can find them IMMEDIATELY.
By pre-programming the phone number and email addresses of your loved ones, you can immediately contact and communicate with your loved ones. Be it a jihadi attack, a tornado, a terrible storm of any other daily event that hits somewhere and eventually picks you...be ready BEFORE it strikes. Download it and keep it handy on your cell phone for when you need it. It is disaster insurance of the first kind.
Robert Scoble's blog post is where I first heard of the Life360 phone app. Scoble's Life360 blog link.
Yesterday we saw horrid scenes of tornado and storm damage from the Midwest in the United States. But is there a way for you to get warned that one of those is coming? And is there a quick way to let your family know you're OK? Here I sit down with the founders of Life360.

Here is a good comment on Scoble's original blog post (above) that explains how it works in a very practical way in a tornado.
