The description of SOSbySMS

This app is distributed "as-is" and without any warranties. This is not a substitute for calling your local emergency services, which should be done if at all possible. Please visit for more important information regarding this application! I cannot guarantee that this works on all phones. Install it and test it first. Please do not rate poorly solely for the fact that your device may not be supported. THE LOCATION GIVEN IS NOT DETERMINED BY THE APP, BUT BY YOUR DEVICE! This means that the results will only be as accurate as your device itself is.

SOSbySMS is an application designed to send a pre-defined message to a contact of your choosing. The message will contain a request for that person to call for help on your behalf, a link to your approximate coordinates*, the time it was sent, the number from which the message was sent, and also the accuracy of the given location.

The purpose of this application is to allow you to contact help in the event that you need to do so quickly and quietly. Though it is not as direct and effective as calling 911 (or your local emergency number), it can be effective enough to get you the help that you need. Simply start the app, select your contact (or multiple contacts, if your messaging app allows for that), and send the message.

The app is designed to automatically attempt to turn on WIFI*, then allow the user to select whether he/she is requesting the police, fire department, or lifesquad. Other than to select your contacts, no further typing is necessary. This makes the app quick and easy to use, which is vital in a high stress situation.
