HelPls : Social Cause

“Blows are what awaken us and help break the dream. They show us the insufficiency of the world and make us long to escape, to have freedom.”

– Swami Vivekananda

Many people and international companies have tried and created solutions (like BSafe, Panicgaurd, Bipper) for this but none have started with India and Indian network in mind where many many have cell phones but not all have always on Network Connectivity. HelPls is an application designed with high compatibility to suit most of the cell phones available today. It comprises of following four important features enabled in it:


  1. By just one click HelPls will send SMS to your friends or family (letting them know that you are in trouble).
  2. HelPls will enable voice recording of up to 60 seconds, which will record in the background and can capture some real important moments during an adverse situation.
  3. HelPls will contact the emergency contact number or Police (#100) by making a call automatically through your mobile phone within no time.
  4. HelPls will post help message (if you have a FB and/or twitter account) with GEO Code and Direct Map on Twitter and Facebook and will help you out as it will inform your online friends about your location who may help you out without Internet or Network connection.

HelPls can be downloaded on IOS, Android and Blackberry(arriving soon) operating systems at No Cost for Social Initiative. At Varshyl Mobiles we believe that this is just a small drop in the ocean when it comes to serve the community. At current times when mobile phones have become a necessary evil, having HelPls in your mobile phone serves along with other tools like carrying pepper sprays or clubs. Our hope is if this app can only help 1 person/individual or professional in a hard pressed situation we have put in our share of “1 drop in the big sea of social contribution”. The variety of situations in which HelPls finds its use is infinite and matching to its applicability are the associated benefits which one may receive in adverse situations (God Forbid).

The app can be downloaded from Google play Store or Apple Store
