Phone on silent during an emergency? NeedUNow is the solution!

by | Mar 23, 2020 | General Apps | 0 comments

There are few things more frustrating than needing to get in touch with somebody, but their phone is on silent. Maybe you’ve been on both sides, because it can feel equally bad having missed a time sensitive message or been unaware of an emergency happening.

“Sorry, my phone was on silent” can be a thing of the past. Repeatedly leaving texts, voicemails and calls, just hoping the other person will answer can be, too.

NeedUNow is the solution. It’s available to download on iOS and Google Play, they also have a website

The app forces an audible notification when you send a message to your registered emergency contacts, whether the app is force-closed, the phone is on silent or the device is asleep. It’s cross-compatible, too, so iOS and Android users can alert each other. It’s simple yet infinitely more effective than any solution (or lack of) we have right now.

Whether you’re a parent, child, teacher, caregiver, babysitter or business owner, you can think of a situation where this app would be incredibly useful. Potentially even lifesaving! It’ll also share the last known location of the device, if location services are enabled.
