This app is for people who are stuck for whatever reason in abusive relationships. It is disguised as a regular news app, but when you go to the "Help" section of the app, it leads you to domestic violence resources, and it has a "Go" button which when pressed, alerts local authorities as well as local shelters, and starts recording everything that is going on.
If the user is looking up resources and the abuser comes near, they can simply press an "X" button and it will load a random news page. It does the same for the actual foundation site.
It is a free app, available for both Android and Apple.
I'm linking this thread to one that I started in GD.
