an app that gets you there safely

With all this technology it's easy to get a false sense of security. You think, I probably shouldn't walk through this park alone at night, or hmm, this parking garage is a little creepy, but don't worry, I have my phone if anything happens. The thing is, bad things can happen fast and it's likely you won't have time to dial 911. That's where this potentially life-saving app comes in.

Companion lets you connect with friends using the app so they can virtually escort you wherever you're going. GPS tracks where you are and built-in sensors detect if the user dropped their phone, starts running, removes their headphones and so on. This then prompts the escort to check if they're ok and allows them to connect with 911 on their behalf.
