Hey guys

So it is rare for me to actually PAY for an app but I found one that I figured I really really should have called inDistress - if I am in distress I can press a button and an email will go out to a designated person giving my current location and asking for help. 

I tried it out today while sitting in the safety of my home to discover that the app can't find my current location.  I checked with other apps that use my current location and they were fine but not this one.

I am thinking that this kinda sucks and a bit of a rip off, right?

You think I will be able to get my money back? It isn't about the money.  I thought the concept was a good one but turns out to be junk.  Grr.

I have looked at how to do this and it seems the only way is to write a review.  Doing that now ...
