1. Damini

     

    Amidst increasing concerns for safety of women, KloudData Inc. has tried to do its bit by bringing forth this app ‘Damini’ for the safety of ladies. Aptly named in tribute to the Delhi brave heart, this app helps women in distress immediately alert their near and dear ones by sending an SOS message that has their current address and location details. Moreover, the app starts recording video clips using phone’s camera, continuously sends the recorded clips to Cloud and also sends the links to these videos as SMS to the group. You can create the alert group by adding people from the phone’s contact book. Just long press a particular contact to remove it from the group. Use settings in the app to specify speed dial keys that launch the app, send SMS and start video recording.
