“HelpBridge” announced by Microsoft, out now on iOS

Microsoft has just announced a new cross platform application/service that really is a great idea. This new software, which is available on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone (sorry BlackBerry users) is out now, and focuses around natural disasters. More specifically, this allows users of the app to say whether they need help, or want to give help in the event of a natural disaster (watch the video above for a quick overview). Through this, if you chose to help, you can donate through many different companies, including the famous American Red Cross. This service, if used correctly, is a fantastic idea, so kudos to Microsoft.

What do you think? Glad to see someone do something like this? Wondering how well it will work? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
