New Mobile App Turns iPhone into a Safety Beacon for Outdoor Recreation

Intelligent Design Communications today introduces Yodel 1.0, their new personal safety network utility for iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4. Yodel turns an iPhone into a safety beacon for people who enjoy outdoor sports and activities. A message is formatted with the user’s activity/route, estimated time of return and location coordinates and sent via SMS and/or email to selected contacts. Along the way, they can send waypoints or activate an S.O.S. emergency system, with one simple action.
