Do you know where your teenager is? Are you sure? Want to be precisely sure?
Parents now can learn precisely where their child or teenager is at any moment by calling them and asking them to take a picture using the new iPhone app called IcePics (In Case of Emergency Pictures)
IcePics primary purpose is to assist anyone who suspects they are about to become a victim of kidnapping, rape, robbery or assault by having then simply point their iPhone at the suspicious person and push the IcePics button on their iPhone. IcePics will immediately email a picture of the bad guy along with the GPS location pinpointed on a Google Map to contacts pre-selected by the owner.
A wonderful secondary use of IcePics is to confirm the location of your teen or child with the Google Map sent to your email along with the photo. After downloading IcePics for only $2.99, the user simply enters email addresses of as many contacts as they wish. That information is saved for use whenever the owner is being approached by a suspicious person.
Even if the perpetrator smashes the phone, the photo is already gone from the iPhone and has been sent to the pre-selected emails.
Because the photo can be taken silently, without the camera click sound, a user can press the IcePics icon button and use the few seconds that it takes for the phone’s camera to auto-focus, to hold the phone up to their ear and position it for a picture of the suspect without alerting them or offending them.
Even if a person does not have an iPhone, or doesn’t purchase IcePics, once criminals become aware of the app they will flee when any phone is aimed at them. Most criminals will not stop and second guess whether or not someone actually has an iPhone equipped with IcePics.
