Home Live Wire Getting Arrested At #OWS? There’s An App For That
Occupy Wall Street protesters now have a free mobile application to alert others if they’re about to be arrested. Jason Van Anden, a Brooklyn software developer, just released his “I’m Getting Arrested” app for the Android market. It will also become available on the iPhone in the near future.

Here’s how it works:

Users write an SMS text message in advance and program a list of recipients. As they are about to be arrested, users can hit one button and alert everyone on their contact list.

As of Tuesday morning, almost 10,000 people had installed it.

For more information and to download the app, check it out on the Android Market Store:
