Morse SOS - FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

How do I use the app?

Just tap on the app to start flashing the SOS signal. Press the back button on your Android device to stop flashing the signal.

Can I change the signal blink color?

Yes! Press the menu button on your Android device to show the options menu. Then select the color you want. You can choose between Red, Yellow and White. Though I would personally suggest keeping the default Red.

What about other colors?

Umm... the purpose of this app is to try and save you in certain dangerous situations and your objective then would be to get help as quickly as possible and get out of the situation. The color options that are provided have been scientifically proven [don't ask me when/where :o) ] to be the most visible to the human eyes. I am sure you do not want to be deciding if you like Teal or Burgundy better in such a situation. Less choices, faster decisions.

Why is Red the default color?

Why not? Okay, red is like the universal sign for danger. Flares are red. I read somewhere long ago that the human eye is most sensitive to the color red. Why, even all stop signals are red.

Can I also send out an audible SOS signal?

Yup! Starting with Morse SOS version 1.1, you can turn on an audible SOS signal. Just press the menu button on your Android device and selct Toggle Audio from the options menu. Repeat the same procedure again to turn off the audio.

I restarted the App and now the sound starts by itself.

Morse SOS remembers your last color and audible signal settings between restarts. So if the sound was on the last time you quit the app, it will be on when you start it again. You can turn it off by selecting Toggle Audio again.

I restarted the App and now it doesn't blink with the default Red color.

See previous question. Morse SOS remembers your last color setting between restarts. You can always change it back to whatever color you want from the options menu.
