June Smartphone app of the month

As discussed in the June Computer Group meeting

With luck, you may never need it, but when you are faced with an emergency you will be glad that you had previously downloaded the Alertcops app. It enables you to quickly and efficiently get help from the emergency services in Spain in English. In addition you will be notified if you find yourself in  an area affected by dangerous conditions – extreme weather, terrorist alert etc. Also the Guardian facility can be used to enable location of a person who is lost e.g for reasons of accident or confusion.
