Guardly let us know that their useful personal safety app is now available for BlackBerry. The app was launched on the iPhone in April and Guardly says it has really caught on with “students, real estate agents, social workers, travelers, those afraid to walk alone at night or concerned about dating or domestic violence.” In a nutshell Guardly is a mobile alarm system for your BlackBerry. The free Guardly Alerts service lets you send location based emergency alerts to up to 15 contacts by voice call, sms, and email.
They also offer a subscription Guardly Connect service that has been discounted to $1.99/month or $19.99/year and lets you connect to those same 15 people through a voice conference, Instant Message, and provide real time location data.
Definitely worth checking out if you need a personal safety system like this in a dangerous neighborhood. Personally I would recommend simply avoiding situations that require you to think of installing such an app but sometimes that is unavoidable.
