Emergency Questions have travelled into the future and now are available on your smartphone device! Who wants to carry a very small book around everywhere, when you can carry a slightly smaller phone (or larger tablet) and have a not-literally infinite amount of questions to get any conversation started. And then carrying on. Before eventually stopping.

With specialised packs for specific situations and people or just loads of general ones, all appearing in random order so you never know what might be coming up next: an inappropriate question about auto-fellatio or an odd query about whether you’ve tried Japanese food.

From the Sony Bronze Award winning podcast (and everyone knows that bronze is best) Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast. It could only be better if there was a shrek in it (or if the questions were read out by Tim from the Office).
All the question packs you purchase will be added to the random generator, but if you wish to get questions from specific packs then you have the ability to hide one or more of the available sets of questions (so you hopefully won’t ask your kids the Human Centipede question).

What’s New

Version 1.3

We're back in the App Store after a brief hiatus. Fixed a few layout issues for the new larger screens, plus a few spelling mistakes, dark mode, landscape questions!

I use these on Tinder

Over the past couple of years, I have routinely used Richard’s emergency questions to open conversations with the women on Tinder. Although I estimate that less than 5% of the women I contact actually reply, I do not blame Richard for my lack of success. 5/5 stars

Emergency questions proves invaluable in date situations. When accosted by murderers it's a great distraction. Also used it to get out of a parking ticket.

Could only be better with a Tim from The Office in it.

RHLSTP emergency questions are great. I can't wait to try them out on a date. Would have been somewhat better with a shrek.
