Microsoft HelpBridge Disaster Response App

Last week Microsoft released a new free mobile App called HelpBridge. The App has been released for Windows Phone, Android and iOS, with the purpose intended around natural disaster response and relief operations.

HelpBridge can be used when a natural disaster occurs to connect friends and family being affected. Users can also provide help through HealthBridge in the form of donations or resources required by relief operations.

When setting up HealthBridge users need to provide contact details for a list of friends and family members. When disaster strikes HealthBridge can be used to contact a user’s friends and family by SMS, email or Facebook and indicate if the user is Ok or needs help. The phone’s GPS can also be used to provide location data.
