    "In this dangerous world, we always need a way to keep an eye on those closest to us. This is a terrific app for that, I always know just where my kids are! My kids never put their phone down, so I can always count on it being accurate!"

    "The idea behind this app is innovative, but the interface and usability falls short. It looks like it was designed 10 years ago, and it could stand to function a little better than it currently does. Beta testing really needs to be implemented for this because it's a great idea. It just needs some work. "

    "This is a much needed app that every child or female should have due to the increasing high levels of risk involved on the streets. This app could make the difference on saving lives by adding a higher level of security. This app should be the first app to be considered without hesitation. The concept is great, although this app has not been proven yet, the outcome of its success rate will determine its overall rating."

    "I understand that safety is a big concern right now. Many people want a "panic button" style app. But I don't really see the use. Can't I just...text any of my friends? Or send a group text, if I want to reach a number of people quickly? In a true emergency (say, being attacked by a stalker or mugger), I'm not exactly going to have time to pull out my phone, open an app, input my location, and send for help - let alone wait for help to arrive. In any other situation, why can't I just use a text message - or 911? I'm just not seeing what this app is supposed to do for me."

    "Silent Beacon allows you to actually call people, not just send a voiceless text to people who have no clue whats going on. I can't tell you how much confusion apps like Revolar and bSafe caused our family."
