New Personal Safety App bSafe Joins Angry Birds And Facebook As Most Downloaded Iphone Apps In Norway
bSafe Readies for U.S. and Rest-of-World on Heels of Blockbuster Scandinavian Launch.
Bergen, Norway, 8 November 2011 – After only few weeks on the market, the free personal safety app bSafe has rapidly become one of the most downloaded iPhone apps in Norway. For the past week, bSafe, Angry Birds and Facebook apps have vied for the No. 1 spot on iPhone. bSafe, which has relied almost exclusively on word-of-mouth marketing in its native Norway, has also gained significant traction on Android phones. Launching soon in the U.S. and the rest of the world, the app will also be available on BlackBerry devices.
Founder and CEO Silje Vallestad said, “I am extremely pleased to see so many people downloading bSafe and giving themselves much-needed peace-of-mind. I expect a very positive reception in the U.S. as well, where the need may be even greater for a free, easy-to-use personal safety tool.”
bSafe is a free app that allows users to select personal Guardians, the people who will be notified when help is needed. All user’s guardians are alerted with an emergency SOS message that includes the sender’s location, while a direct call is placed to one specified contact.
