Bhubaneswar: Women in distress can now send a message to their dear ones for help through a device and mobile app ‘Notifica’ in a matter of seconds. This was claimed by 16-year-old Odia boy Aditya, the inventor of the app.

“A woman in trouble can send a message about her problems by pressing a button on the device which has the ‘Notifica’ app installed on it. Subsequently, the mobile will send the message as well as GPS location of the woman to family members or friend or police,” said Aditya, who is studying Class XI in California in the United States.

He further stated, “I had planned to invent this device and app for the safety of Indian women after coming across sexual assault cases from the internet.”

First of all, a user of the ‘Notifica’ has to install the mobile app on her phone and then store the mobile numbers in the app to whom she wants to send the distress message. After pressing the button of the device, a message along with GPS location will be sent instantly to the concerned person.

Aditya has plans to launch the ‘Notifica’ app in 2016.
