As part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative, leading IT services firmÂ UST Global, in association with â€œKanthari,â€ a project of theÂ International Institute for Social Entrepreneurs (IISE), Trivandrum, has launched â€œiSave,â€ a free mobile application on the Android platform that is expected to come to the aid of women in distress.
iSave will enable women to pre-programme key contacts for an automatic SMS in the event of an emergency. It can alert up to five different numbers. In an emergency, the person needs to press one button. The application also has the capacity to track their movement through GPS even if the mobile is switched off. This feature can be very useful in a worst-case scenario like kidnapping.
The app can be downloaded via tgci.inâ€.
