How The "I'm Getting Arrested" App Can Be Useful

Posted October 26, 2011 - By Moye Ishimoto

Are you participating in the Occupy protests but worried about how to tell your friends and family that you've been arrested? There's an app for that. No, really. It's called the "I'm Getting Arrested" app for Android phones and it "enables anyone, with one click, to broadcast a custom message to SMS numbers in the event they are arrested."

Technology is now so amazing that with a click (or swipe) of your smartphone screen, you can tell all the necessary people in your life that you're headed to jail. While this app was created specifically for the Occupy Wall Street rallies, we thought it could come in handy for other situations.

    I was wondering the same thing as Charzard113. If it's a one-click button or something you might be able to hit the button while the cop asks for your ID or something, before the cuffs go on?

    Charzard113 is correct. Plus i'd probably be too drunk to use the app just like last time.

    Doesn't matter what you set it to say, no cop is going to let you grab your phone and send anything while cuffing you. App is pointless.
