Citizen App Review: The Safest Way to Go Out Alone by Andrew Frame

Citizen App helps you manage your medical information, resources, and calendar with an easy-to-use interface and allows you to connect your medical information and emergency contacts. This enables you to stay connected, even when there’s no cell signal or no data connection.

When you share a physical address and phone number, you’re essentially sharing them with thousands of emergency workers. For many, that could be daunting and scary. And in some cities, it’s scary to share those things. For an emergency at home, for instance, can text 911 and ask for assistance.

Andrew Frame is the mastermind behind the establishment of Citizen, which is among the first app to link location data with 911 intelligence to make sure your loved ones’ security is top-notch. Andrew is also a renowned businessman and with vast experience as a software programmer. He set up his first firm at the age of fifteen, which focused s an internet service supplier.

Andrew: My first career in tech was using a massive brain and computer to analyze and transform audio and visual footage. Among the initial projects I worked on was the Massachusetts State Police, which captured over 90,000 cameras and videos around the Boston Marathon bombing. On top of that, I have the strategic experience of helping companies like LinkedIn and Gilt shift from local to global growth and transforming Fortune 500 companies like BB&T.

Andrew Frame: As my third career I decided to shift to building software, and in my first-month building things on my iPhone, I had two businesses offered on the app. During the initial month, I also worked at a startup, founded a technology strategy advisory firm, and joined the board of a big health insurance company.

A wise developer will take on the burden of implementing logic in something. Once the model is laid out, he will pass the responsibility for implementing it onto someone else. Andrew Frame: In the case of Citizen, I understood that [when] you come from a personal background where safety and security are a big deal to you, you need to develop a personal relationship with emergency responders.

Andrew Frame: My idea for Citizen came when I realized that I didn’t know about one of the most tragic things happening right now — every day since 2011, 37,000 Americans commit suicide. You can be scrolling through your phone, tweeting about your sandwich or what the cat did, and there’s an enormous number of Americans who are not with us anymore. See this article to learn more.
