With "I Need-A-Hero" you can easily send notifications of your current position to your friends and relatives whose helping hand you might need this very moment (e.g. a car breakdown) or who you want to inform about where you currently are (e.g. at night when you are alone on the way home).

Your position will be tracked up to a few meters using GPS and be sent with your current address and a Google Maps link. If GPS fails, we will use other smartphone features to track your position using GSM/Network localization.

Apart from the direct contact via eMail you are able to post the message including your geolocation to your facebook wall to inform your facebook contacts.

With our tracking function you can inform your "heroes" continuously about your current location.

Added in version 2.0:

- iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s+ and iOS 9 support added

- Apple Watch Extension

- Location based events: Notify a friend when you enter or leave a specified location!

- Push-Notifications

- Performance improvements

- Updated design

The Helvetia "I Need-A-Hero" App is not suitable for contacting professional emergency services. Please use the official emergency number in your country. To send eMail or facebook postings you will need a data connection. The arrival of your message at the recipient side is depending on their settings and polling frequency.
We take the liberty to send you information about products or promotions via
push notifications. This app has been tested regarding the described functions. The usage of the app is at your own risk and is subject to a full warranty waiver.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
