8 iPhone apps that could save your life

8 iPhone apps that could save your life

Your shortcut to the emergency servicesEveryone raves about how great the iPhone is, but did you know the Apple device could actually save your life? I don’t mean you should use it as a buoyancy aid or some kind of makeshift splint, but rather install one of the many life-saving apps available for the iPhone. Install these on your device and you’ll be prepared for many emergency situations where someone’s life, or indeed your own, is in danger (you’ll need iTunes running to install them via your computer). Don’t forget too that the iPhone also doubles up as a telephone, which you can use to call the emergency services.
