The Circle of 6 app is another app that I saw on the news recently.  This app allows you to choose 6 friends and keep in touch with them so that they know where you are and what they can do to help should danger present itself.  It was designed specifically for college kids after the rash of disappearances of students walking to and from parties alone at night.  As of this post it received 4.5 out of 5 stars.  I saw it on the local news yesterday and it was presented as a protective app that “takes protection even further” than another safety app called “Companion”.
