Review: Motorcycle Safety Tool For iPhone Users – GoRide

Mobile technology is quickly evolving and there are some apps that can really help save either your money or your priced possession. One such app is GoRide.

GoRide is a motorcycle safety app to detect falls and accidents. The app uses the iPhones built in sensors to analyse and detect if you have fallen. If the app detects a fall, it will begin a 20 second countdown before sounding an alarm and sending a notification to your chosen saviours. They will then be sent your current location and phone number so they can contact and find you quickly to make sure you are safe.

We have thought a lot about the balance between privacy and keeping you safe. This is why your location is only shared if you have fallen and is only available to the people that you choose. The app does not track or upload your location unless it detects a fall.

The app requires an Internet connection to upload the user’s location in the case of a fall. The phone must be mounted vertically in portrait on the handlebars of the bike to ensure the most accurate results for detecting falls. Please read and accept the Disclaimer in the app before using the Buddy feature.

The new Buddy feature is available on iPhone and the saviour feature can be used on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

We really think that is is like an insurance that you are trying o do so whenever you are going on a long ride (provided there is internet connection) you can actually sue this application to make sure that your loved ones are aware of your safety.
