Written by Omojuwa
The Ealert app is one of the most important applications a person can have on their phone today. The application was created in 2013 by PISI LTD, which aims to help tackle the problem of insecurity in developing countries. PISI Ltd recognizes the need for security in Nigeria and the rest of the world today.

The Ealert app guarantees contact for help with just the press of a button. All you need to be located in a dangerous situation is Internet connectivity. There are many stories of kidnappings, terrorism and a variety of dangerous scenarios that Nigerians as well as many other people in other countries have to face today. The Ealert provides some reassurance for you and your loved ones so that you can feel safer.

This is what the application does:

* It has a panic button that sends out alerts in 45 second intervals with your updated GPS location via SMS

* You can insert a maximum of 10 contacts to whom these alerts will be sent in the event that you press the panic button

* The ‘overprotective mother’ feature sends out alerts when you don’t check in at a particular time.

In all emergency situations such as kidnapping, rape, domestic violence, Ealert aims to reassure the safety of its users. The Ealert application is free for everyone to download on Blackberry, iPhone or Android phones.

However the EAlert team intends on releasing a premium version, shortly, that offers an improved user experience.

Ealert also seeks to uplift young people by doing its part with regards to social corporate responsibility. 10% of profits will go to a scholarship fund. Ealert will conduct a social media competition on Vine and Twitter for students and the winners will be beneficiaries of the scholarships.
