Our iphone app

Adam Stone, Rokk Media

Guest Blogger: Adam Stone of Rokk Media talks to use about his company's involvment in the creation of the Devon Air Ambulance app. 

Imagine being miles from anywhere on deepest Dartmoor when you suddenly find yourself in the middle of a horrific accident. Now, thanks to the new Devon Air Ambulance Trust iPhone App, you can not only alert the authorities of your plight, but with the most accurate coordinates available, your chances of a speedy rescue are significantly increased.

Rokk Media developed this unique iPhone app for one of the South West’s leading and best loved charities. It uses the most accurate location coordinates available in assisting the Air Ambulance crew to locate and airlift patients as quickly as possible.

The app uses high-tech geolocation technology to pinpoint an exact location and generate the coordinates the aircrew needs to find the exact location they are looking for. The app’s full-screen map will be especially useful for users who don’t know where they are and will also make it much easier for patients to get help by making it simpler and easier to communicate with crews. There is even a unique SOS torch facility to shine a globally recognised message across great distances or low lights.

Beyond the map functionality the app also provides lots of information about Devon Air Ambulance Trust as well as an option to donate money directly through the app via SMS, Integration with Devon Air Ambulance Trust social media activities.

The app was developed as a native application, which means it is downloaded from Apple’s App Store and installed directly on the iPhone. It uses the phone’s built-in functionality such as for the torch and GPS tracking. The app is not reliant on internet access for it’s rescue functions although a network signal is required to call the emergency services.

The original app was developed for the iPhone but there is likely to be an Android version in the future.

Keep an eye on our news pages for more information about changes to the app to invluce Android users.

In July, people celebrate the 4th of July (in the U. If (based on their individual energies) most of the party is fire (as an example), we may want to downplay the color red. They'll stay with you for a time, and then they'll leave.
