Andriod Apps Let The Family Know About Location - Place SMS Andriod App

A PESHAWAR Based Software Company Known As Hiwaas set to launch a free Android cellphone application, which will let the family know about location of its member driving or traveling in a country where security is the main concern almost anywhere you go.

Man Behind it is Asad Iqbal, a software engineer from Mardan who is CEO of Hiwaas, says the app for the Android phones would be launched on Saturday .

The app, PlaceSMS, will help someone driving to a destination let family know about his location without texting or calling while driving.
It sends text messages triggered by ‘location’.
Initially, Place SMS is developed for Android platform since majority of smartphone users in the country have an Android powered handset.

The app is developed and designed by the highly creative and enthusiastic team at Hiwaas, which is a fast growing web and mobile development start-up based in Peshawar, said Asad Iqbal.
While sharing how he’d come up with the idea, Asad Iqbal said while traveling to Swat for a meeting with one of his clients, his family would constantly text and call him to find out where he has reached, since the law and order situation in Swat valley was not very in those days.

The young software engineer said the Android cellphone app could also be used to ensure the safety of schoolchildren waiting for a school bus.
“If schools make sure the bus driver has this app on, the parents will not have to let their kids wait outside for bus as they will get alerts about the route of the bus.

Place SMS is a simple way of notifying your friends, family and colleagues about your location without risking one’s security as the app developers say they will not be storing data outside the user’s phone unlike many other popular applications in use these days.
“With Place SMS, you can notify the people when driving or sleeping while you are traveling. It’s extremely easy. Place a message at a location on the map, write the recipients number, type the message to be sent and you are done. Place SMS will send the message to the recipients when you enter or leave that location,” said Asad Iqbal while explaining the way this app works.

His software company developed many other products too since its establishment in Mardan in Dec 2012.
It developed I-phrase free cellphone app for those who write text messages in Roman Style to turn automatically into Urdu words.
The company also developed the ‘Angrydrawing app’ for the children, who like drawing.
It also has an E-commerce website, which ensures security of buyers by having registered shops on it.
