New App Protects Domestic Violence Victims

Aspire News is an Android and iPhone application created by the Robin McGraw foundation that allows people in abusive relationships to seek help by alerting police, recording during an altercation and providing domestic violence resources for victims.  The application is discreetly disguised as a news iPhone app such as Huffington Post or CNN.  When the user taps on the “Help” button of the application, it redirects the user to domestic violence resources.  If the user is experiencing an altercation with their partner, they can record conversations with the tap of a button as well as alert the police.  The app is not only for people who are in abusive relationships but also for loved ones of victims of domestic violence.  The app also allows the abused individual to contact loved ones using the app in emergencies.

If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, Aspire News can provide helpful resources and aid in the event of a compromising situation.  Click on this link for more information.
