 Full Description: 
Community Sidekick is an app for the iPhone, iPad or iPod, that sends automated email messages containing map links, which show the userís location. As soon as the user starts a trip into the community and launches Community Sidekick, automated emails are sent every few minutes (at 5, 15, 30, or 60 minute intervals) to let a friend, family member or other caregiver know precisely where he or she is located.

The app also provides an easy way for the user to send simple, prescribed email messages with the press of a button. These messages read "I am OK" or "Please contact me" if he or she has a question, needs some assistance or wants someone to talk to.
