Android phone crash detection and reponse app

CRADAR

CRADAR, if you stop moving for a set amount of time, it asks for a response from you, failing that, it sends a text to someone for you, giving your LAT/LON and a Google map location also. Havent played with it yet, but I have downloaded it.

I'll be playing with it later on, and report back. Crash simulated, of course

Also a good way to find the phone if you lose it.

Not if you just leave it somewhere, thats why I use Lookout But if it fell out of your jacket riding, and the fall set it off, then yes. ura, sorry, doesnt appear to be one.

That is awesome. Almost enough to make me upgrade from my old-fashioned dumb cell phone. I like that it is tied into the accelerometer.

Very cool. I was playing with Google App Builder to try and do something similar but hadn't been able to make it work yet. Now if this could just tell a SPOT device to fire the message over satellite ... too bad the SPOT device doesn't have an API.
