      Martin, Vous pouvez tester le site de recherche (Il y a encore beaucoup de bugs) sur www.911gps.me et rechercher Miranda. Vous pouvez également aller directement au lien www.911gps.me/miranda. Cette carte n'est pas protégée par un mot de passe. Remarque. Le site vous demandera de partager votre position. Si cela fonctionne correctement, je serai en mesure de vous voir. S'il vous plaît ne pas partager votre emplacement si c'est un problème.

      Bonjour Martin, Merci pour vos commentaires. Comment avez-vous vu le projet? Ce n'est pas encore en vie. Voulez-vous tester notre application prototype.

      FR : Je trouve votre projet vraiment super génial. Pouvoir envoyer la position GPS à un membre de la famille, amis ou même les services d'urgence dans le cas d'avoir besoin d'aide urgente. Et de voir le déplacement de la personne qui vient t'aider est vraiment super. /-/-/-/ EN : I find your project really super awesome. Be able to send the GPS position to a family member, friends or even emergency services in case of needing urgent help. And seeing the move of the person who comes to help you is really great.

Apps as Swag?: Descriptions below:

Here’s My World’s Unique "Invented Here"  Organizational PC Tool apps

Clip, Snip and Link—Advanced capture tool that acts like a multi media camera for your PC. Capture image clips, bookmarks and web URLs. Embed images and links in PDFs to create “Clickable” documents that link to websites but can be stored in regular file folders. (Like shareable and storable bookmarks) Also access our Quick Image Editor and My clipboard media organizer all from one tool.

Here’s My Image Editor. A Down and Dirty quick image editor that allows you capture screen shots of anything you see on your screen. Quickly crop, rotate, adjust brightness and contrast, resize and reduce in size large photos, add captions and borders all on the fly and drag and drop on to documents or save as individual files. This IS NOT a high-resolution print quality photo editing system but My Image Editor is an insanely easy way to capture what you see on your computer screen and do quick edits, attach links and save in a low resolution formats that are easy text, email or share to social or incorporate into existing documents without adding much to the size of your files. 

Here’s My Sound. –Capture sound from your web cam microphone, desktop speaker channels or both at the same time. A great tool for capturing (or Ripping) just the sound from any video you see on your desktop pc and saving as separate Audio files. Here’s My Sound is an easy way to create voiceovers for YouTube videos, back up important or sentimental voice mails, make quick verbal notes and recording speakerphone conversations. Even create your own sound effects to add to videos without having to download potentially harmful files to your PC. You can also capture just the sound track of YouTube music videos in a compressed format that is playable on any music player. Edit the Audio file credentials of any music file to include Artiest, Album, Location, Date of recording, tracks and much more. 

 Here’s My Clipboard— If you are working on a project that incorporates several different types of computer images, web pages and other media you need an easy way to search, save and accumulate those files for later editing. Here’s My Clipboard is super efficient way to capture mutable media snips of anything your see or hear on your desktop computer into a multi media clipboard. My Clipboard sorts each type of media and organizes them into separate media folders so that finding and combining them later into one document or project is a breeze.

Risks and challenges

From Jeff Holden. Developer of the HMGPS application:

As a small business owner for the last 20 years I know how important it is to understand the risks of new endeavors and to not over promise or underestimate the challenges. This is especially true for idea's that have really never been attempted before or at least have a completely different twist existing technology. These are the kind of projects that Kickstarter is known for but along with trying something new come unexpected risks.

As a Kickstarter and other Crowdfunding sites backer I'm still waiting on some of my rewards from projects that I backed over a year ago. I understand that may never get them. I did not want to put any of my backers in the same situation so I have developed and tested the HMGPS application over the last 9 months to about 80 percent completion. Most of the hard work is done and prototypes of the Android version exist now. The system shares positions and creates maps as it is designed to.

What is left for the Android app are cosmetic changes to the mobile application, the accompanying website and betters servers. This will be finished and delivered for the modest $2000 goal. If we hit $12,000 as a stretch goal we will produce the Apple Version. Beyond the first stretch goal if we hit $30,000 we will add full texting and communications within the application.

My goal for this Kickstarter Campaign is to under promise and over deliver a great product that should be fun to use and might just save lives.
