"Help" Location Sender (ROOT)

Version 2 (February 5, 2020)

Download (43 downloads)

Say "help" in an SMS and your estimated address and exact location will be sent automatically as a Google Maps link. Case insensitive and can appear anywhere in the text.

Practical uses include: tell your SO if you're unsafe; lost and want to tell someone where you are; car breaks down anywhere and need to be picked up.

I hope you never need to use it, but better safe than sorry.

Stay safe.
