Top 5 Life-Saving Apps on iPhone

Best ways to save the day on iPhone

We often joke that our iPhones are absolute lifesavers when we're trying to find a meeting point in an unfamiliar city, researching a local eatery, or calling a friend to pick us up.

In some situations, however, Apple's wonderphone can be a very literal lifesaver.

Just check out these Top 5 life-saving apps on iPhone and remember to use them whenever an emergency situation arises.

This is where our luxury gadgets REALLY justify the time and money we've spent on them.

As the App Store listing for this utility so succinctly reads, First aid by British Red Cross is "Free, simple, and life-saving." It provides clear instructions on what to do in emergency injury situations, from blood loss to heart attacks and beyond. There are some tests included, too, to help you memorise the basics of proper first aid care.

While most of the time you'll only need iTorch Flashlight for finding your front door lock or getting home after an evening out, it can also be a lifesaver if you're caught in an emergency situation without any means of illumination. It uses your iPhone's flash to light the way, and can even be set up to emit an SOS signal.

ICE is unusual in that it's designed to come into play when you're in no fit state to operate your iPhone - or communicate in any way, for that matter. In it, you can store any relevant information on your specific health care requirements and contact details for your next of kin. This will help first responders no end if you're ever rendered unconscious.
