    Holy Crap! A self defense app! I think it would work better if she had a gun in her other hand....because threatening language from an official looking character on a phone is so much more effective than 230 grains at 900 fps....

    How long before California and New York ban that app as being too dangerous for the common citizen to carry?

    When I was attacked I didn't have a cop n a box. I can see where that would have been helpful...... NOT!

    I think someone wearing a lab coat and saying, "Stop, this person has AIDS, leave now or they will do their best to infect you" would work better.

    Or, better yet, and acute case of lead poisoning

    I need an app that says....

    “Stop, your height and weight have been calculated. A casket has been put on hold in your size and a mortuary has been notified. Leave now and save your life “

    It's a FREE app. You get what you pay for.

    It wouldn't hurt to have that app AND a concealed weapon.

    Good Lord! Did you see her stance? She couldn't aim that phone worth crap. I bet she recorded the fire extinguisher in the distance.

    If you've got that app, you're probably texting or playing on your phone, anyway.
    Maybe the bad guy will be laughing so hard, he'll only take your valuables, and
    go away? Course, it might just piss him off...
