fun fact: once in biology my teacher told us that “if you’re ever crying wipe the tears all over your face and they’ll help clear up your skin” then he explained that because tears are designed to clear dust and dirt from your eyes and will do the same for your skin and clear up acne and i remember thinking “excellent, fandom will make me beautiful”
this isn’t how i want to be remembered
Introducing Snap Angel, the world’s first cloud based, personal safety application.
Snap Angel is a mobile application that allows you to upload images and texts to the cloud whenever you find yourself in a situation where you feel your safety might be compromised. Snap Angel will keep these images and texts safe and secure, and record the location where they were taken, giving you the peace of mind of knowing that someone else knows where you are and who you are with.
Snap Angel is quick and easy to use. After taking a picture or sending a text with Snap Angel, it is instantly transmitted to cloud servers without requiring you to select names and phone numbers from your address book. Open the app. Take the picture. It’s sent to Snap Angel, automatically. The evidence is in the cloud, off your phone, where you need it.
Snap Angel could save lives. Don’t be embarrassed to protect yourself. You have the right to enhance your personal safety.
Guys, this is a big deal.
This app could genuinely save your life.
The person who developed this app is the husband of my doctor. It was just released, and she asked if, since I know my way around the Internet, I could help spread the word. I, of course, said yes. Now I need your help to get this going around.
Just for some background information, the guy who developed this got the idea after watching some specials on missing persons cases. He kept hearing about these cases where college students or young women or what have you were abducted or went missing or were killed because no one knew their whereabouts, and he couldn’t stop thinking that he should do something about it. So he got the idea for this app. That was a few years ago, and after ages of development, now it’s finally complete and on the market.
The above explains pretty much how it works. Just open the app, snap a picture (or, if you’d prefer, record something in text - a license plate number, a landmark, whatever), and that’s it. It doesn’t keep it on your phone, it doesn’t auto-send it to anyone (so you don’t have to worry about false alarms), and literally no one can access it. What does it do? It uploads it (and backs it up securely) to the Cloud. And keeps it there. This information will stay there and be inaccessible unless something happens to you. And if it does, a police/court order is what can allow that data to be released. When that happens, whatever picture you took or text you wrote will be available to the police, along with the location it was taken or made at. You’ve just given yourself a huge chance to actually be found and helped, just by clicking two buttons.
There is no reason not to get this app. It costs a measly $1.99 and it could save you or anyone you know. Just take a look at the FAQ.
The app is available for iPhone and could add an Android version if enough people ask for it. Please, please, share this information and spread the word!

This was a man, dressed as a plant, making pigeon noises at people walking by. I said hello, asked if it was okay to take his picture, and then asked why he was dressed as a plant. He said, “I’m just working through some stuff. Thank you for asking. No ones asked yet.”
I’ve been dealing with stuff the wrong way.
