This app provides users with the ability to notify selected contacts whether they have network connection or not. The app is most useful for people who take long road trips or frequent subway rides. The app simply allows the user to select people from their contacts and start a connection. An Ubuntu server running on Digital Ocean's cloud with MongoDB running on it provides for a nice database that pings the phone. Once connection is lost, the database has a old time entry, which triggers Twilio to send a text message to all recipients pre-selected by user.

Future Expandability: The eventual goal of this app is to be able to notify the contact who you were in the middle of a conversation with while you lost connection.
