Numa CEO, Steinar Bredesen, who came up with the idea for the emergency alert app, says that by downloading the app, mobile users all over the world can alert their closest friends or relatives by SMS and Facebook with their GPS location by the click of a button. The app also supports faking incoming calls, calling emergency numbers and snapping ''witness'' photos directly to the user's Facebook profile, with the correct GPS-location, day, date and time directly published on the photo.
"We have great expectations for this mobile app for personal safety, especially with the busy Christmas season coming up. By combining alerts via SMS to selected contacts, it will allow Facebook to push updates when turned on with GPS tracking with features of preventative functions such as fake calls and witness functions I really hope that we can contribute in a positive way of stopping the violence," Bredesen said.
