Brief History

NineOneOne was designed and developed by Evan K. Stone, founder of Interactive Logic. It was inspired out of the simple need to be able to contact emergency services in one's area quickly.

Other projects were put on hold to get this out the door and into the hands of people who needed it the most.

The Goal

The single goal of NineOneOne was to create an application for the iPhone that would drastically, yet practically, reduce the number of taps to make the call to 911.

A typical call to 911 would take approximately seven taps: Home, Phone, Keypad, 9, 1, 1, Call.

We knew we could do better.

Our Success Story

NineOneOne in its default configuration reduces the required number of taps down to three: Launch App, Big Button, Confirm.

This can be further reduced down to two taps in a configuration setting, which bypasses the confirmation step.
