Going on a blind date? Walking alone through a dangerous neighborhood? If you want someone to check up on you without actually having to bother someone unnecessarily, just text Kitestring (Free). After a specified time period has elapsed, Kitestring will message again and ask for confirmation that you're all right. If you fail to respond, Kitestring will automatically send a message to your emergency contacts to let them know that you may be in trouble.
Here's hoping that one day the need for this sort of technology will be obsolete, but until then, it's good to have some insurance.
