Real Help is an emergency and safety app created to help people protect the people they care about. When someone is feeling threatened, activating a Real Help alert instantly broadcasts their location, audio, and pictures to everyone they’ve designated on their Real Help contact list, giving the people who care most everything they need to respond.
  Real Help was conceived in the belief that people are only victimized because the people who care about them aren’t there to stop it, and that perpetrators only act because they think that they can get away with it. Our idea is that with the touch of a button and no further action you could invite dozens of people to witness your situation and respond appropriately. Essentially you are no longer alone, people now know where you are, that you’re in trouble, and what’s going on. Take a picture and they now know who or what is threatening you. Hopefully, you should be able to take your situation from “alone and threatened” to “minutes away from a stream of concerned friends showing up and dozens witnesses your situation.” We’re hoping that this app can protect you and your friends from being victimized, by involving those people who care most about you when you need them to be there for you.

What a Real Help Alert broadcasts to your contacts:
1. Your alert level (Red, Orange, Yellow, or Party), indicating what danger you feel that you’re in, and how you’d like people to react to the emergency.
2. Your GPS location, so they can get to your location quickly or direct emergency services to your location if things get out of hand.
3. Streaming audio, so your contacts can hear what’s going on around you and monitor the emergency’s severity.
4. Any pictures taken, so your contacts know who or what to expect.
5. A group chat is opened so the person in trouble and/or all respondents can communicate.
6. Everyone who the alert was broadcast to will get a link in their email to the archived event with audio, pictures, location, and chat, so even people who don’t yet have the app can respond and are witnesses to the emergency.

Other Features:
1. Safe Call: Unless you deactivate it, the Safe Call feature will trigger an alert all on its own at a designated time. You’ll receive warnings before it goes off, but it can only be canceled with your secret code.
2. Since all alerts are run from our server rather than your phone, the alert can only be truly deactivated by canceling it with your secret code.
3. Alerts are sent from our server by push notification, so the app doesn’t need to be on to receive alerts. It only needs to run in the background when a safe call is set or while dealing actively with an alert.
4. You can add and manage dozens of contacts, specifying who gets what kinds of alerts. You can make sure that you’re always notifying the people you feel are most appropriate to the emergency. By adding more contacts you increase the chance that someone is available and close by when you’re in trouble.
5. Everyone who the alert was broadcast to will get a link in their email to the archived event with audio, pictures, location, and chat, so even people who don’t yet have the app can respond and are witnesses to the event.
6. A party alert button allows you to use the app for non-emergency purposes, and helps you get comfortable using it in case there is an emergency.

Using the Real Help App, it will always be free to receive and respond to alerts with no advertising interruptions to slow down the response time. We will require a small monthly or yearly subscription fee to be able to trigger alerts, because we do have to cover costs and continue to improve it.

Please keep in mind that while this can be a tremendously powerful tool, like all apps, it’s vulnerable to interruptions in connectivity and imperfect GPS locations.
