There is a wealth of information online covering what to do in a disaster, but victims of a natural disaster, such as a hurricane or earthquake, seldom have access to the Internet. There are many kinds of disasters and emergencies, but the nice thing about disaster readiness apps is that a few simple actions can cover a number of different situations.
The FTC reminded us Monday what many a parent knows all too well: Not all kids' apps are safe, especially where privacy is concerned.
What they often have, on the other hand, is a smartphone, which is why a disaster preparedness app is a good thing for anyone to download.

For instance, communication is important, so apps that can translate text to Morse code flashes on the smartphone screen (yes, there really is an app for that) or translate foreign languages (especially while traveling ) can be essential. Disaster apps instruct you how to prepare for disasters by stocking food and water supplies, creating an escape plan and identifying hazards.
And they cover a variety of situations, so the app will be handy no matter where you live or what happens.
This may also provide some interesting reading during the inevitable down times disaster brings: the survival kit includes extreme scenarios like how to control a spooked camel and survive a dirty bomb.

NOAA Now app, also a freebie.As we mentioned during our hurricane app roundup, this is worth downloading.
