ICE Lock Screen

If you choose to enable the ICE lock screen, then it will display whenever the screen wakes up. 

Emergency service providers press the red cross to activate the ICE app without unlocking the phone.  

Optionally include any of the following on the lock screen:  battery percentage, clock (analog or digital), date, and owner contact information. 

If you choose not to enable the ICE lock screen, then ICE simply runs as a normal app on your desktop -- display prominently with the ICE Widget, or place a short-cut next to your Contacts icon so first responders are sure to see it. 

Lock screen widget

For Android 4.2 & up, you can simply place the ICE widget on your system lock screen.

This could save ur life one day.... it saved my life I am a diabetic and passed out one day in the street, and the dr had all my medical information from James in Jan. 2010

Hey I want you to know how much of a life saver this app. is. I have a lot of health problems. Well the other day I had to be rushed to the Hospital by ambulance, and because of this app. the Hospital Staff was abel to pull up all of my Medical history quickly. After everything had calmed down, this app. was all the ER staff could talk about. They were amazed that an app. like this had been made for your mobile phone. So thanks for helping in saving my life.  from Wade in Sep. 2009

“By the way, just thought you'd like to know that your app came in very handy two weekends ago.  I had to go to the emergency room for severe chest/stomach pains; my brother-in-law took me there since I had no one else to drive me (didn't want to pay the residual costs for an ambulance, regardless of having insurance). My brother-in-law is not a tech person by any stretch of the imagination, nor does he know my history.  When it came time to give my details before treatment I had him hand over my phone to the Triage Nurse to get all the info they needed.  I was not in a situation where I could talk or think well at all, so your app gave them all they needed to know.  They parked my phone just below their PC and entered all the info from it.  They were really impressed with it and said they wished more folks would have what I had on the phone.

There's a bit of karma in this story, though ... bought that app just in time, it seems. The ER staff knowing my allergies to painkillers and anesthesia helped them to properly prescribe non-narcotic painkillers and anti-nausea medication for me to help manage my pain. I wouldn't have been able to tell them that with the state I was in.” from Dawn in Sep. 2009
