What is it: Allone is a digital alarm designed for promoting a safe community.
How it works: There are 3 main features of this app divided between the Main Alarm, My Alarm and Watch Me. When activated, the Main Alarm sends out help notifications and your location to immediate users and your closest social circles. My Alarm offers the same service but targeted towards your selected preferences and Watch Me allows others to follow your location when you travel.
You login the app via Facebook in order to create a personal profile. The app also includes an option for additional health information.
Best for: Anyone really, especially when you don’t know when you might need help.
Value Offering: You might not carry a pepper spray with you all the time but it is likely you carry around your smartphone. With this app, it makes it far more convenient and simple to send out alarm signals during dangerous situations.
Hype Level: The app is launched globally with CEO Anders Paulson eyeing markets like Indian and Brazil which can be vulnerable for particular groups of people (women/children).
