Eagle Scout Creates Cool, Useful iPhone App

If you’re in the wilderness and you can barely get a signal on your cell phone, there’s a chance you may you have an easier time sending a text message.

That’s because text messages don’t require the same amount of data that a phone call does.

So, if you’re in the remote wilderness and you find yourself in an emergency situation, it makes sense that it might actually be easier to send a text message for help, instead of trying to call 911.

Nick Entin, an Eagle Scout from Troop 128 in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., has created an iPhone app that — with just a few clicks — will send a text message to a number of recipients with your GPS coordinates and a message stating that you need immediate help.

Instead of fighting your way through a 911 call with a limited signal, you can send a more reliable message with just a few clicks. That frees you up to concentrate of staying safe until help arrives.
