In the Indian city of Delhi women are all too often the victims of sexual assault, and now various app providers are stepping in to help them. If you press the "Help Me" button on the "Safebridge" app, a text message with GPS information will be sent to a series of preset numbers. Others are developing the app "Safe Safari." It calculates the safest route using Google Maps, taking into account information from various police stations on attacks against women.
