***It may get your beloved iPhone back with the Lost&Found notice displayed on Today Screen.
***As a personal alarm, you might find it a life-saver in a god forbidden situation.

Maybe one of the most useful features is that this widget allows you customize a text message on the Today screen in case the device is lost and picked up by someone else. This message shall provide such person a way to contact you and you may even include a bounty to encourage the return of your beloved iDevice.

This widget also has a convenient torchlight that can send customized message in Morse light signals. It's useful when stuck in any disaster, e.g. earthquake, and unable to communicate for help due to loss of voice, long distance, indirect view etc.

As for the PANIC alarm, once triggered, it cannot be stopped until you kill the app from background by double-tapping the home button and swiping the app away. This is by design in case the offender taking control of the device and trying to silence it. And if you lock the device right after triggering the alarm, the offender would have to know how to unlock it first. Even then it takes time and the sound and light should have drawn enough attention or bought you time to escape.

The basic street safety rule is to create loud noise when in danger to attract attention of passers-by and scare away offenders. But not everyone is capable of screaming properly. Now with the panic widget installed, you can simply pull down the Today screen and tap the PANIC button to create continuous ear-deafening siren sounds with SOS torch signals.

Based on different situations you may choose to send SMS with your current location to up 3 contacts with just a flick, and the emergent call 911 (also can be changed to any local emergent number) is also within a touch.
