Austin

Realtor has mobile safety app created for Realtors

Mobile safety app

The real estate profession lends to spending extended periods of time alone with strangers in strange places and it can be a daunting and sometimes unsafe environment.

After one of her friends was attacked at an open house, Austin Realtor Michelle Jones set out to have an app developed that would act as a safety alarm, detail reporter and 911 emergency dialer.

What piques our interest is the innovative nature of real estate professionals. There are other safety apps on the market that are more robust and more highly connected to emergency personnel, but Jones has a simple app for iPhone users that could come in handy in an unsafe situation.

Update: the app appears to now be dormant.
