Called the Samsung 321, this new app contains a database of all disaster hotlines, national institutions, and facilities that users can contact or locate in case of emergencies. It can also guide its users to the nearest fire station, police outpost, hospital, or motor assistance provider. As a kicker, this app can locate the nearest Samsung service center for mobile products and appliances.
This app makes use of the Global Positioning System (GPS) found in modern mobile phones to determine the user’s location. It also plots the directions or driving direction on Google Maps.
Samsung 321 covers over 84 locations nationwide including the National Capital Region (NCR) and provincial areas such as Batangas, Ilocos Norte, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Occidental Mindoro, Albay, and Palawan.
Samsung 321 is now available on Google Play Store. It will also be pre-installed on select Samsung mobile phones. Once installed, users can launch the app through the device’s app page, dialer, or emergency call button.
