I talk a lot about fitness on my blog, but what about safety while you exercise? If you like to run outside and enjoy the fresh air while you get in a good workout, it’s important to take the appropriate steps to keep yourself safe. One way you can make sure that you stay safe while you go for a jog is to let someone know where you’re going and when you expect to be back. Now, though, you can do something even better. With the new React Mobile app, you can let selected contacts know that you’re going out. You can use the “Follow Me” feature to let them see your GPS location in real-time. This means that no matter where you’re going, someone will be able to see where you’re at and to make sure that you’re safe. When you reach your destination or you return home, simply click the “I’m Safe” button to let them know you arrived in one piece.
This app has some other interesting features that you can use to stay safe while you’re out and about:
-You can text someone immediately should you encounter danger. They’ll receive a text and email alert with your current location.
-You can quickly call the police or emergency personnel if you find yourself in a tough situation.
-You can post a link to your current location on Facebook or Twitter to quickly let your entire social group know where you are.
What I like most about this app is that it means a quick jog or run doesn’t have to turn into something scary. Even if I want to go out early in the morning before the sun comes up, I can rest assured knowing that I can quickly let the people who care about me the most know if I become injured, lost, or scared.
Have you ever used a safety app like React Mobile? How did you use it to stay safe and in control?
