    A new iPhone application designed for parents to quickly assist authorities in locating their children in case of an emergency

    New York, NY Oct 20, 2009 iAmber is set to launch today, Tuesday, Oct. 20. iAmber (www.iamberapp.com) is an iPhone application that allows parents to create and store profiles of their children, including basic identifying information like height, weight, gender as well as pictures of their child from different angles on their phone. In case of an emergency, a parent can quickly email their childs profile to local government Amber Alert contacts who help locate missing children. The application provides phone numbers and email addresses for contacts in all 50 states. To learn more about the Department of Justices Amber Alert program please visit amberalert.gov.

    The purpose of iAmber is to help make sure lost children are found. iAmber ensures that information about a child is reported to authorities quickly and efficiently using the iPhone. If a local police official deems an Amber Alert to be appropriate, a parent can easily send a complete profile of their child to relevant authorities in a matter of seconds.

    nice idea. but i don't see charging someone $2.99 for an app that would useful to all parents. just my opinion.

    the same contact #'s and email addresses can be found here: AMBER Alert - State AMBER Alert Contacts. just add the one for your state to your contacts for quick reference. but 911 should ALWAYS be your starting point anyway.
