“For Women, by Women”, they tout. Although, anyone can use this application if they feel concerned or need help. The Watch Me 911 turns your iPhone into a security assistant. That way, you can continue with daily activities with a peace of mind.

There are three options when you download Watch Me 911:

  • Monitor Me
  • Panic
  • I’ve Arrived

Monitor Me is a timer activated alert. You set the timer before activities. If you don’t check in before the timer is up, friends are notified. They would then call you to make sure you are alright.

Panic is a simple button that you can use if you have to pass through questionable areas. Walking through the parking lot or a dark alley, for example. If you feel threatened, you double-tap the button and people are notified. You can also have 911 contacted.

I’ve arrived is an app that lets you get a message ready to let people know when you show up to your destination. When you get there, you send the message. That way, if you get right into business, you don’t have to stop your momentum to let people know where you are.

This application was created by Alice Armitage and Jill Campbell. As businesspeople, mothers and women, they felt the need to have an application like this. They also felt that other women (and men) might also need a personal assistant program.

The application is fee-based. You get a 30 day free trial, and if you like the app, you can either pay $9.99 a month, or $99.99 a year for all three products (with 2 months free).
