    The Crash App works on your smartphone to detect a crash on your bike, board, horse; any outdoor activity and sends an emergency alert including your GPS position and medical history.

    What if you've just dropped your phone?

    You'll get an emergency response to help you pick it up. Great service!

    edit: d'oh chdot beat me to it.

    "If an accident occurs, followed by no movement Crash App detects this and will ask if you're OK. A customisable timer counts down; if you don't respond within this set period, then an alert is sent out, including your location."

    @cb - interesting models on that page. The girl is just asking for trouble ... no helmet!

    And the guy below her obviously isn't getting enough calories to keep him going on his bike.

    The poor guy on the deck must have been going at some speed to end up 20m in front, and to the right, of his bike like that.

    Probably useful for downhill MTBers. For everyone else, a bit OTT.

    cb, yes I saw that bit, but if it falls out of your pocket and you keep going then the emergency services might come looking for it.

    The crash app the CTC brought out a week or so ago is quite good but more aimed at occasions when a motorist hits you (and it's free).

    @Cyclops, that does look useful. Pity it's iOS only though. I wonder when the Android version will appear?

    I believe an android version is coming in early 2014
