Israeli developers have created already few apps to track rockets and help Israelis quickly find the nearest bomb shelters.
The first one of this type (also Android version) was app called Color Red in Hebrew צבע אדום – you can download and read more about it here.
RED, a new app, provides a secondary alert system for alerting users of “Red Alert” issued in their area following missile launches. RED uses reliable information from The Home Front Command website which is updated in real-time and is pushed to your device when an alert is issued in your area.
When the alarm is issued you will receive a push notification and it’s details will be displayed for 10 minutes according to the safety guidelines published by The Home Front Command.
You can easily choose between either receiving alerts only for your areas or all the areas.
Other features and goodies
- Alerts are PUSHED to your device. Other apps poll constantly causing battery drain. Save energy and use RED.
- You can see all the latest alerts from the last 10 minutes on a map (from around the country). You can share the map on Facebook & Twitter
