Awhile back we told you about Personal Guardian a one-push panic button for your BlackBerry smartphone. If you ever find yourself in an uncomfortable or emergency situation quickly send out a silent distress call by pressing the convenience key. Messages are immediately sent via the various communication methods you preconfigured on your device or the online portal. These include sending an email, SMS text, phone call to an emergency center, or a Twitter message with your GPS location.
While also packaged with SmrtGuard Pro, many of you voiced concern over the hefty one time fee of $19.99. Well fret no more as it is now free to download in BlackBerry App World. As someone who's usually in the city late at night for work I feel secure knowing I have a quick way to reach out for help. Personal Guardian is compatible with most BlackBerry Smarphones running OS 4.5 and higher including the newer OS 7 devices.
