Self : AWARE

Self : AWARE

Self is an award winning IOS app by AWARE foundation of Singapore.

Most women do not complain about domestic violence (verbal and physical) because they have no evidence to prove it. This app, when activated, monitors for a spike in the ambient sound decibel level (for example shouting), and automatically starts recording, saving an audio file in a secret folder. The victim can later use this recording as proof of abuse. The app also has an optional facility of automatically sending an SOS, via SMS, to a nominated person when the sound level rises above a certain point.
