Version 4.5

Introducing the Front Camera Add-On!

‣ We are thrilled to expand early access to the Front Camera add-on to all Parachute members
‣ With the Front Camera add-on, Parachute will use the front-facing camera and microphone in an emergency
‣ The Front Camera add-on was inspired by rideshare and taxi drivers who use Parachute to record emergencies happening inside their car with their phone mounted on the dashboard

Did you know ...
Unlike the regular Camera app, which filters out background sound, Parachute is designed to capture all sound. Parachute uses an “Omnidirectional” polar pattern to capture 360 degrees of sound, which can provide important context during an emergency and reveal events happening outside of the camera’s field of view

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for being with me on all those runs when I was trying to become a better Cross-country runner out on those city trails. Cool that you kept the loyal day one’s on this update to 4.0 instead of booting them. I can keep going solo, even now I’m just doing runs for fun.

I love it

For me this is something I need to have on my phone cause I go out alone all the time and as I am under 18 it worry’s me that what if I am ever in danger? This app helps me as a panic button to alert my family I need help. To have this so easy to access it is a great tool to keep you safe.

The setup is wonderful

I love the app so far, but I have an iPod, and I was wondering if I need wifi in order for my emergency contacts to get the message?

Developer Response ,

Hi there! In order to alert your emergency contacts, Parachute needs either cellular reception or WiFi. If your device has no cellular or WiFi for the entire duration of the incident, Parachute will still record everything (video, audio, location and more) but will not be able to alert your emergency contacts. Once you are back on cellular or WiFi, it will prompt you to upload the recorded data. If you activate Parachute and your device initially has no cellular or WiFi but later at some point before you end the incident your device connects to cellular or WiFi, your emergency contacts will be alerted at that time. Feel free to reach out to us any time at hi@parachute.live for any more questions you may have!
