Microsoft is here with a solution for the problems of climate change. As you may guess, this is an upshot of the recent Hurricane Sandy that swept destruction across the U.S. during late October 2012.
Microsoft is launching an app that is designed to be an aid to its users at times of natural disasters. HelpBridge, as it is rightly named, aims to help its users to get connected to people during a large scale natural disaster.
If you are trapped in the middle of a hurricane, this app will alert your folks about your current situation. Microsoft claims that it can even do more.
It provides you two main options. The “I need help” option facilitates the users to quickly type messages and post them directly on Facebook, via email or SMS, while the “I am OK” option allows them to share their resources with the needy.
HelpBridge also provides a facility wherein the users can even opt to share their location, so that they can be saved without delay. It also has other options that suggest three ways to help those who are in need.
If you have an extra penny you can donate it via PayPal or can share your goods. You can also volunteer to help either locally or nationwide.
Windows phone, Android and iPhone provide downloadable HelpBridge. Download it right now here .
