Emergency app launched in France for terror attack alerts

Paris: The French government has created an emergency alert application intended to send swift warnings to smartphone users in the event of a bombing, shooting or other disaster.
The app, called 'Alert System and Information of Population', developed after last year's bloody attacks on Paris, is being released ahead of the European Championship soccer tournament starting June 10.
The app is available in English and French, it can be configured to release a smartphone alert if an attack occurs nearby.
Officials demonstrating the app showed a smartphone screen turning crimson along with the words "ALERT," and gave a  brief description of what was happening and advice on how to react.
Initially it was configured to alert only armed attacks and bombings, but then the
French officials eventually plan to update the app so that it can flag industrial accidents, floods and other emergencies.
