University researchers in Taiwan have released a mobile phone application that with one touch can transmit to any number of people the location of users trapped in earthquake rubble or debris. The app transmits the latitude and longitude co-ordinates of people stranded in disaster areas. It has recently been put on sale in the mobile application stores following the massive earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan. Users anywhere can download the application, called Mobile Saviour for $2.99 in English, Chinese or Japanese. All proceeds from the sales of this app will go to victims of the devastation either through Japan's foreign ministry or Red Cross chapter.
