Women need some safety applications when they go out.
There are Applications available compatible with Smartphones.
They can be used in times of Emergency
Some of them are.

4.By using this Redpanicbutton Application, it allows you to push a central button and generate a security alert, by doing this it will activate immediate contact with emergency services, it will also provide quick details of the current location and along with that it will automatically dials various emergency numbers and sending of panic messages via various communication channels like text message, mails and social networks like Facebook and Twitter. But this Android Free version is for only one panic contact so better buy a full version.
The general complaint against these applications are the unreliability of 3 G Services in India.
People suggest applications not using Internet is needed.
One may also use the Speed dial.
In some of the Applications the location is not specified to the receiver.
Would some one Link it to Google Maps?
I also recommend Pepper Spray Gun.
