    "The features of the Panik app sound great, but expectations as to what constitutes a loud alarm can differ. If you want a loud, screeching alarm, try another app. Panik states that it has the ability to alert and update your social network via Facebook and Twitter. This is of course, a great feature to have in an alarm app, as long as it works when you need it to! The PIN feature in case an attacker tries to turn off the app is also good, of course, but your safety depends on having the app work when needed, so try it out first, don't wait until you might need to use it!"

    "This app seeks to teach you about a certain, fairly set specific set of self-defense moves taught by the USMC. It works quite well if you have to specifically learn this set of moves, and almost as well if you're just using it as a general self-defense resource. The app itself comprehensively presents the material, though the presentation and visuals could be a little better."
