This is a really good concept, especially for those on WP7.x and as a way of assisting others. However, I'm about to uninstall this app, because it can't get past the *required* step of setting up emergency contacts. Guys, I have about 1,500 contacts in my People Hub... and after waiting 5 minutes for that page to populate I had to give up. Please refactor that experience and I'll be more than happy to reinstall and re-rate.

This app is a great idea, but it should allow you to click on the map to open Maps and see the location of your emergency contacts so that you can navigate to them. It should also just send the email / text, not then open those apps... If this were a little more functional, I would give it a 5. And also, something like Rooms would work better, where everyone can see the discussion. That way if you did need help, you would only have to type things once.

Poor UI and lack of information on getting the most out of this app. While it provides helpful links to contribute funds through various charities - and has the touted feature to send an emergency notification to others in time of need, it's all jumbled together into a non-intuitive interface that contains links to unfinished Microsoft HelpBridge web sites and seemingly unfinished network to share the 'I Need Help' notification.

No emergency info in "I need help". No way to change the country code of emergency phone.

Seems to have 2, disparate uses: Emergency contacts and donating, both of which can be accomplished otherwise. And, a US-only app. Seems over-hyped. Will set it up and consider further, but probably then uninstall.

More of an advertisement for charity donations than a useful app.
