    From the developer of Atmosphere, the hit weather app, and Speech, the virtual assistant, comes Lifeline, the app that, when pinned to your start screen, allows the user to, in a single tap, call emergency services from their start screen. One confirmation message is displayed to stop an accidental call.

    But this isn't what makes Lifeline great. Before I go on to explain the killer feature of Lifeline, take a look at this stat:

    90% of cell phone 911 calls cannot be traced to an exact location.

    Lifeline solves this problem.

    What lifeline does is speak a distress message, through your phones speakers, that the operator or anyone around you can hear. It includes location, type of emergency, and other things. In , say, a hostage situation, you can mute the speaker and have your phone communicate to the operator for you via text.

    Lifeline will release in less then a month. It is planned to debut on Windows Phone, Android, and, after launch, iOS for 0.99.

    What a great idea!

    Will this only be available in America, or will this work internationally? For example, if I'm in the UK I would like it to ring 999 instead of 911.

    Looks great! :D

    Depends how development goes, but it is very probable it will work in most other countries.

    I don't have to ask you to make the WP version awesome because I know you love the platform as much as we do. :)

    This is a great idea in my opinion. however, letting the user to modify the emergency number would be the most important thing for such an app.

    I'll probably just make that option part of a "welcome" screen when the app is first opened.
