Voted as one of the two “best apps for domestic violence prevention” last year, the Aspire News App is a potentially life-saving app that allows victims of abuse to call for help at the touch of a button. The app contains summaries of top stories in world, sports, and entertainment news.
Additionally, if someone you know is in an abusive relationship – or if that someone is you – the Help section of the application contains resources for victims of domestic violence.
Please Note: This app does not serve as a replacement for emergency services – in any situation where you feel that you may be at risk, please dial 911 or your local emergency number.
iOS 16 SDK update.
Ratings and Reviews
The idea is awesome. However, as someone who is in a verbal abusive relationship the app will get me in trouble. Here’s the thing, love how there’s news stories to make this app look like I’m reading about the news. However, when I go to the Get Educated section to learn about abuse and steps, the links link out to my web browser automatically instead of being inside the app. And there’s not much content about abusive relationships. There’s 4 content pieces. I want to know more. And it only links out to dr. Phil’s website. So then I have to clear my history browser. C’mon, if you’re creating something to keep women safe, don’t have it link out! Everything should be in the app.
Please correct …
On the help tab section that prompts users for emergency contact data, please correct the spelling of ‘receive’. Remember it’s I before E, except after C. It’s not spelled recieve but receive. Thanks
I’m using the Aspire application in case I ever get adducted. I was kidnapped as a child and it’s always in the back of my mind that it could happen again. Ever though I’ve given my husband access to track my iPhone when I’m traveling on the long trips in my car, he doesn’t automatically do. In the event that I ever run into trouble, I can send a quick alert to him & the police. My husband can then quickly follow up with the police. I hope that I never have to use this application but it’s nice to know that it’s here in case I do.
I’m giving the application five stars because I think the overall concept is fabulous. I am not in an abusive relationship but I can see the potential of the application for those that are in unhealthy relationship. It also has other uses as I described above for myself. Please do fix that one spelling error though. Thank you.
I’ve had no issues
Maybe I just got lucky but I’ve had no issues with the app! As someone who was previously a domestic violence victim this app is so so important to me. I wish it existed back when I needed it. I tested out the alert thing and it’s worked every time and got my location correct, which is surprising because the Uber app never even gets it right. You can tell when it sends the message because after you tap three times on the tool bar the white words subtly blink once. I didn’t even catch it the first time I tested it.
Also- for those saying you can’t save contacts or anything, after you go through the intro click on the menu icon in the top left corner. Then click on help. And then click on get help. You’re able to add your contacts right there!
