Save the app that could save your life.

‘Emergency +’ is a national app developed by Australia's emergency services and their Government and industry partners, helping people to call the right number at the right time, anywhere in Australia. The app uses a mobile phone's GPS functionality so callers can provide emergency call-takers with their location information as determined by their smart phone. ‘Emergency+’ also includes SES and Police Assistance Line numbers as options, so non-emergency calls are made to the most appropriate number.

When calling Triple Zero (000), remember to stay focused, stay relevant, and stay on the line. Before you call, ask yourself:

* Is someone seriously injured or in need of urgent medical help?
* Is your life or property being threatened?
* Have you just witnessed a serious accident or crime?

If you answered 'Yes' to any of these questions, call Triple Zero (000). Triple Zero calls are free.

Cover art

Aiming your HDTV antenna it's easy and free!

This application helps you discover digital TV towers (DTV) close to you and it helps you find the bearing from your location so that you can point you antenna to catch those stations. It works based on a list of antennas broadcasting digital TV over-the-air (OTA) in the United States, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Austria, Argentina, Brazil, Portugal, Colombia and Uruguay.

In the US it can also display the FCC calculated broadcast area over the map!

Especially useful when you camping in your camper van, so you can get the best TV reception wherever you are.

Be aware that compasses in phones are not very good and they are often wrong or stick. That cannot be corrected from a software application such as this one. Sometimes it's useful to “calibrate” the device's compass by performing movements with the phone describing an "8".
