Hey, Everyone! I'm getting a ton of great questions, and in the next couple days I'm going to have everything answered in a concise, but specific and organized way, so I'm not doubling back and trying to answer similar questions several different ways. So in short, Thank you for asking, and A FAQ will be posted soon! And by the way, We're doing great! Please continue to help spread the word! And if you want to ask a question, please do it through kick starter. It will help me keep everyones correspondence organized.

Help! is an emergency smartphone app that, at the touch of a button begins recording audio and video while simultaneously uploading the footage to a remote server. When the server connection is broken (turning off the app, battery dying, etc) an email goes out to 1 or more addresses you have designated to alert your family, friend, lawyer, etc that there is a video waiting for them and that you may need help. This way you are never without an alibi, a witness, or someone who knows what's going on. The email comes with a message that tells the recipient you have activated "Help!" along with your location and a link to view or download the footage.
No one can steal your phone and destroy the evidence because it's already backed up and distributed.
Examples of intended uses:
Have a feeling something isn't right or you think some creep might be following you down a dark alley? Activate "Help!" just in case, until the danger passes. You can always call your emergency contact(s) and tell them to disregard the email.
Are you getting pulled over and want to make sure the law enforcement follows the rules? It's your word against theirs without "Help!"
Witnessing a robbery or hostage situation? "Help!" gives no visible indication it is activated unless you set it to.
At a protest and things getting out of hand? Help serve truth and justice without worrying that someone can get away with anything by confiscating or breaking your phone!
This App could save your life or keep you out of jail someday!
Everyone you love should have this app on their phone.
Once we hit our goal for the Android Market we will then set the next level for adaptation to the Apple Appstore.
