“Companion”, is the app that allows your friends to virtually walk with you while you’re alone! Awesome right?!
All you have to do is enter your location and destination and select a friend to be your “Companion”. The app warns your companion if you wonder off OR if you start running! Also, if you don’t respond to the app’s “check in” alerts every 15 seconds, your phone will start making loud noises!
It can also be set to automatically call police, or to give the people who are tracking you an option to call the police for you!
The app is currently available for Android and iOS.
