This started off as a rape prevention application, but then we made this for general crimes. Many times, people do not know they are in a dangerous area where crimes have been often.
What it does
Shows a map, alerts friends when the you are feeling uncomfortable by sharing your location, and automatically calls the police when the button Help! is chosen. This also has a recording feature when you are feeling uncomfortable.
How I built it
We used Android studio, the Twilio API for messaging friends your location, Google Maps API, and attempted in using the Facebook API
Challenges I ran into
We could not get the Facebook API to work.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The application works for the most part.
What I learned
What's next for Safe Alert
Fix Facebook API use.
