What to do in a disaster

Citizen AID is a UK government-sponsored app which gives advice on the best immediate response to a bomb blast or armed attack. (It's designed for UK users, for example with the UK 999 emergency number, but most of the content could help anyone, anywhere.)

We expected this to be the kind of basic instruction that just about everyone would know already, and at first it looks that way. If there's an ongoing attack, for instance, you're advised to run, hide if that's not possible, tell the emergency services and only treat the injured once you know you're safe.

That's just the start, though. The app also has tips that might not have occurred to you, like turning your phone to silent if you're worried about attackers still being around. It summarises the key details you should tell the emergency services: the nature of the attack, exact location, number of injured, whether they're walking or not walking, current dangers, any emergency services present. And it also lists the immediate first aid steps to take for different kinds of injuries.

Verdict:

Citizen AID is closer to an ebook than an app, and even at that level it's more awkward to navigate than it should be. But there is genuinely helpful information here, details that might not know or could just forget in the immediate stress of an attack. Take a look.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.40

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.40

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
