    This is not your uncle Olaf's Volvo..

    Code Amber has been publishing Amber Alert and Missing Endangered Alerts on the Web since August of 2002. We have over 440,000 participating web sites and desktops in our syndication network.

    Now we have released our Code Mobile Amber Alerts and Missing Endangered Alerts App for iPhone and iPod Touch.

    This is not an interface to a web site. Using the iPhone's GPS capabilities we know where the phone is and "Push" a notification to phones in the vicinity of the Alert. All Alerts for the US and Canada are viewable but if you are in the area you will get notified.

    Our goal is to mobilize an entire community proactively when a child, a senior or a developmentally disadvantaged person is missing.

    Imagine an entire community being notified and on the lookout within minutes of someone in danger going missing.

    The App is free and available here iTunes Store

    More information on Code Amber and Code Mobile is available at Code Amber News Service (CANS) - The Web's Amber Alert System | Amber Alert News | Active Amber Alerts | Wireless Amber Alerts

    This is pretty cool, but does it "push" to your specific location? How would it know where you are when the app is not running?

    The App runs in the background so it knows where you are and where you go. However, it only contacts you, it never reports anything to anyone.

    Yes, it is an App store App. The first time you activate the App it registers you with our server as to your location. After that as you move (from State to State) it re-registers you for notifications of Alerts.

    Oooh, ok. Duh. The way I read it, I thought it was using location services. You should release a JB app that does that
