Keep your phone away from your body

An application launched for Android maps locations in Rio de Janeiro where there have been reports of shootings in order to help prevent them.

«We have as main objective to help people to walk in Brazilian cities safely, taking them from the routes of armed conflicts», says the developer on Google Play.

Onde Tem Tiroteio currently counts 2,879 dangerous points in Rio de Janeiro, whose locations were the target of shootings and trawlers.

The platform is supplied with user information, sent by messaging applications, and then checked by the authors in a maximum of five minutes.

Currently the application for Android is used by 400 thousand users.
