SOS Application for Android
Simple but very concise and to the point, this app does exactly what it is meant to do, nothing more, and nothing less. An incredibly useful application to request help whenever this may be needed, from whoever we deem necessary. Created by XDA member giuvilas, version 1.3 of this came to the scene just a day after its original release.
The app basically sends an SMS to whoever you chose as the recipient. This message contains your location (coordinates) gathered by the GPS. The dev is still working on this app and will be glad to receive any feedback he can get.
Hi guys, finally Google has activeted my google app inventor account..so i started making my first application..that was the first thing that i thought.
Basically what this app do is to send with a text message your GPS position (address from google maps, latitude, longitude and accuracy)
The use is simple. You have to choose a contact (with the search button) and then touch the picture.

feedbacks are appreciated…
