Yalahwy is a new Egyptian app that notifies your Facebook friends if anything goes wrong when you're out and about.
Let's say you're taking a taxi at 3 AM and you're a bit tipsy; the driver looks kind of dodgy and all of a sudden he takes a weird turn down a street you've never been through and you start to panic. What do you do? Let's say you're taking a dangerous trip to Ain Sokhna in the fog and rain, you know it usually takes two hours but you never know what could happen on those slippery roads. Let's say you're being followed and harassed by a bunch of men on the street, Let's say you're walking down the street late at night and a group of Neo-Nazi crack dealers being to approach you with nun-chucks and you start to panic. What do you do?
You can also create trips - for example, 30 minutes from here to Mohandessin - and if you do not make it in time, the application will notify your friends that something has gone wrong.
Despite the fact that the Ahmed Mahmoud featured on the app store's screenshot is clearly CIA, the simplicity of the application means downloading it is a no-brainer... just make sure you're not the boy who cries wolf!
