Why use mobile phone technology?

For my own benefit I wanted to really get my head around the benefits of mobile phone technology during a crisis. Could a mobile really help? What could be communicated? What is the advantage of this technology. I thought of possible essential information which could be communicated through a mobile phone during an emergency.

The idea of designing a concept for an app for mobile phones is becoming very interesting and I am very keen to push this area further. The above picture shows lots of possible areas of development. I think choosing a few to incorporate into a simple easy to understand app could be a way forward. Its better to do something well, than lots of things poorly. I aim to find out what the 'vital necessities' are for a person during a crisis..
